As an avid Civil War buff I was looking for something different. After reading the publisher's review, "Blood" seemed interesting. I was not disappointed. The editor's selection of letters, diary entries and brief fiction is varied and kept my interest from beginning to end. From brief accounts about babies in war tents, to Sherman's march to Savanah, to Lincoln's letter to a friend questioning what the masses would have him do, it's all here. The most touching letter was from George Pickett to his wife the day after his failed charge at Gettysburg. Excellent audio quality with different readers.

If you are a civil war buff, then this book shouldn't be missed. The material chosen is excellent, and the different cast of narrators brought these stories to life. It is hard to select a favorite among these however, I thought the Whitman stories of his visits to the wounded in hospitals during the war were very powerful.
