Publisher's Summary

1858, Fort Gibson, Indian Territory. 2nd Lieutenant Dobey Walls meets and bonds with veteran Corporal Jimmy Melton. As the Civil War begins, they leave to join the 8th Texas Cavalry in Houston, then take part in the first and the final charges of the Army of Tennessee. Between those events, they ride with Nathan Bedford Forrest, play an honorable role in the Fort Pillow Massacre, harass Sherman with Shannon's Raiders, and visit the second best brothel in Atlanta.

As surrender looms, they're released to search for Dobey's long-missing family in the Texas Panhandle. Their efforts are hampered by destitute farmers, lonely widows, dangerous militia, freed slaves, and runaways, who increase their numbers and excitement. In the process, they save a quadroon and her daughter from Yankee deserters who have stolen a Union payroll. This act of mercy brings them romance but puts Pinkerton detectives and a renegade lawman on their trail. Confederate Cherokees and Cheyenne Dog Soldiers add to the chaos.

    "Great Performance!"
    What did you love best about No Good Like It Is?

    The reader did a great portraying the various characters.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most ineresting was the historical fiction nature of the book. Least interesting was the attempts at injecting romance (or lust) into the story - wasn't really needed


    What about Keith Newbill’s performance did you like?

    he did an excellent job on character voices and overall presentation. I listen to a lot of books and I thought Mr Newbill's presentation was better than some of the so call top liners.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no extreme reaction - just overall very enjoyable


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the basic story was very good and interesting - I like westerns and civil war era books, but I am also a big fan of James Lee Burk, Michael Connelly, and Vince Flynn. I think Mr. Newbill's performance rivaled some of the readers used by those very notable authors.
