Recommends it for: adults
Recommended to Sheila by: Sam
"My earliest memories are of mornings of unsurpassed brilliance and beaut , with skies blue as robins' eggs. The days would end in sunsets as red as if all the flames of hell and all the fires of the primordial bininning had meshed into one show of light. I believed that every single sensation, no matter how small, was created solely for my own personal satisfaction."

These words from The Keepers of Echowah provide a taqste of the literary pleasure that awaits the reader of this book.

I very much enjoyed this book.

Southern story telling at its finest. The eloquent prose was apparent from the Prolouge.
Story is about twin brothers born and raised in S. Georgia on a Hunting Plantation near Albany (pronounced allbinny for you yankees that might be reading this, ha!)

Very funny, and written very well.
Very quick read as well.

Brings to mind writers like Ferrol Sams and Lewis Grizzard.

Certainly worth the time.

Had the opportunity to read this book today. Beautiful writting. Just ordered the other book Mr. Sammons has written. Twins growing up as orphans in the south in the 1950's. Coming of age. Heartbreaking story.
