"It's a powerful, evergreen story that furthers our understanding of American history." (AudioFile)
I've actually never read this book before, but I've listened to it about thee times now since I was kid. It is such a heartfelt story full of emotion that continually draws you in. Being in the time shortly after the civil war, there were some parts that made me angry as I felt for Paul Logan. I could listen to the story again and again. But what really makes the story come to life is the amazing narration. I wish he could narrate all my books.
I finished this book in just a few days. It was a beautiful and simple heart warming story about life after the Civil War for a man caught between two worlds. This story is filled with strong inspiring characters. I enjoyed every minute.
This is a great story about a man whose daddy was white and mama was a black Native American. Both parents love him but because of his color he can't be loved the same way as his white brothers by his daddy. My family listened to this book on a long trip and everyone liked it. My youngest is 10 and oldest is 15. We all were wiping our eyes and cheering for Paul Edward Logan. GOOD story! The narrator was awesome!
This is a great story that is both engaging and exciting. I was drawn right into the characters and could really identify with their struggles. Great narration.
