A WONDERFUL SURPRISE

Ms. Holt has a winner with this one! I've not called a book beautiful before, but that word fits this story. It's a beautiful blend of human character study, laugh-out-loud humor, grim life in pre-civil war America, and just a great idea! It's also a good reminder that all western life was not blazing guns, and Indian fighting. Wonderful!

A wonderful book...

This lovely book has been one of my very favorites among many. The author weaves such an interesting tale regarding a fascinating time in our country's history. The characters and their interactions with each other kept me wanting to find out what would happen next between them. I just loved this book and I won't soon forget the main character, Amos.
Narration doesn't get any better than this either. He is a master.
