I bought a copy of this book from the author at a festival in Southern Indiana. I consider myself very knowledgeable on the subject of Indiana History and was pleased to find it had new insights for me. I especially liked the bibliography and character biographies at the end of the book. These were a great help sorting out the fact from the fiction and pointing me towards more resources. It's a fiction story but eye opening all the same.

Well researched, this work of historic fiction teaches in my favorite manner. There is no better way to learn than while reading an interesting and personable story. I look forward to reading more of the author's works.
