I like this book for all the context that Kurlansky provides for understanding the era that produced men like Clarence Birdseye. There is more historical information than biographical details as Birdseye didn't leave lots to work from. Kurlansky skillfully paints a colorful image of the times. It's a charming work but not as deep as one would like for a biography. The work is a good reference source but not a deeply engaging biography. Birdseye was a weird character. I imagine he was a hard subject to write about. I received the book from the publisher and was happy to have had the chance to read it.
