Read in September, 2010

If you saw the Ken Burn's National Parks series, it's not hard to recall USNP Ranger Shelton Johnson and his touching accounts of personal moments in Yellowstone and Yosemite. In his first novel, Gloryland, Johnson shares a riveting philosophical journal of post-emancipation life for a slave's son as he makes his way across a torn and wounded landscape to become a Buffalo Soldier protecting Yosemite. A great read for those that seek rich historical writings in our American experience, lovers of the boundless natural wonders in our National Parks, and aspiring writers. A deeply introspective and poetic soliloquy of a quest for inner peace and freedom.
I look forward to more from Mr. Johnson.
