Guidall Reads Another Winner

A few years ago, I heard the book's narrator, George Guidall, speak at a conference where he mentioned recording this title and enjoying it a great deal. I finally got around to listening to it and just as he said, I loved it.

Surprisingly, the author somehow succeeds in combining the seemingly unrelated topics of World War I, the Wild West, the art of sculpting, and the role of women after the turn of the century into a wonderful novel.

Guidall, has long been one of my very favorites, and this book was no exception.

Beautifully Written - Beautifully Narrated

I absolutely loved this book. There are so many layers to the relationships between fathers and daughters, fathers and sons & living in the present by understanding the past. Harrigan delves into these remarkable characters until you care deeply about each of them. Fantastic combination of history, art and the wild west woven into a beautiful tapestry.
