Two stories intertwined that make it impossible to put down! Great for the drive from California to New Mexico.
William Manchester is one of the great writers of our time and does the most extensive and readable biography of one of the most important individual of the 20th century.
I know many of the places that he is described and they made me want to revisit them. I especially wanted to get the book about the old cowboy and found it on Amazon and have read it very good read and the book itself on travel was exceptionally well-written.
Very informing and loaded with history, would have liked more on Simon and Daniel Boons relationship but overall a great story.
I have always enjoyed McMurtry's books but was disappointed in this one. I may have wanted more.
Manchester relates the time between the fall of the Roman Empire to the beginning of the events that have shaped our world with the most compelling and objective perspective of history I have ever read!
I am really excited after listening to my first Flynn book. A frind recommended this when he found out I liked Daniel Silvas books. I now have a favorite series to look forward to listening too.
I read this many years ago and loved it. I have heard it on tape and now thru Audible. It is narrated so well that you can see Twain re-telling his story. I have listened to it once a year for many years, on long road trips with my adult children and laughed from begining to end. We discuse the prose and style of Twains writting and always come up withe new appreciation for this, in my opinion, Americas best author.
The dramatized version was very poorly done and not a recommendation, unlike the book which was good.
Got the book on download in audible and another good listen for L'Amour fans as he always comes thru!
