I love the way Zimmer brings these old stories back to life. A real treasure in the literary world in my mind. A great way to teach local history to my friends and children too.
What drew me to this book was the narrator, Traber Burns. So glad it did! Very well written. Loved the action, storyline, characters, bit of suspense. Another important reason I enjoyed this book was although there was violence it was not graphic and few curse words. Definitely will be listening to more of this author!
