Great read. Strong story, good character development and solid plot - all placed seamlessly and full of detail into historical context. Excellent narration is the cherry on top. A great way to obtain a riveting first-person account (albeit fictionalized) of the Civil War. This is the first Starbuck book that've I've read, and I definitely plan to pick up the other three.
Amazing story about a little known slice of American history. It's also a great insight into one of the biggest environmental disasters in US history, and Egan brings us right up close to the families and farmers on the front lines. His narratives on the dust storms and the impact they had on the people of the great plains are top notch.
Great story and engaging narration. A detailed and well-researched - though entirely accessible - account of the great whale-ship tragedy. Not for the faint of heart. Highly recommended.
