    In this detailed and fascinating account of the legend of the "Wizard of the Saddle," we see a man whose strengths and flaws were both of towering proportions, a man possessed of physical valor perhaps unprecedented among his countrymen. And, ironically, Forrest - the first grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan - was a man whose social attitudes may well have changed farther in the direction of racial enlightenment over the span of his lifetime than those of most American historical figures.

    Story

    Over all the narrarator is very good. The book is pretty good. You can see that the author tries to be impartial for most of the information on Forrest during the war but he is dishonest in the information he gives about Fort Pillow and camps out on the subject. He rides it in the second half of the book and makes the statement that Forrest was a killer several times. Pretty good but bias.

    His name was David Crockett. He never signed his name any other way, but popular culture transformed his memory into "Davy Crockett", and Hollywood gave him a raccoon hat he hardly ever wore. Best-selling historian Michael Wallis casts a fresh look at the frontiersman, storyteller, and politician behind these legendary stories.

    Story

    The author writes a lot of assumptions into this and a lot of his opinion about the people that founded this country and most of it is negative, unfounded and plain stupid. The person reading this narrative did real well. There is still some good content in this book and worth listening too. You just have to spit out a lot of seeds.

    Robert E. Lee, a Christian and a gentleman, was the most remarkable man to emerge from the Civil War and is one of the greatest tragic figures of American history. Reserved and unflappable, savvy and fearless, shrewd and tenacious, fatherly and kind are but a few of the adjectives commonly used to describe this noble hero.

    Charles says: "Unsatisfied."
    "Ok but not great."

    The book just didn't do Lee justice. Short on information, the narration seemed bored. His book on StoneWall Jackson was much better.
