"This is an informative and moving examination of 'hallowed ground' that will appeal to both scholars and Civil War buffs, especially those planning to visit these sites." (Booklist)
Listen to most of my audiobooks on Amazon Echo at work...I pick tried and true stories, classics and guilty pleasures
I grew up around Gettysburg and love taking my boys to the battlefield in different times of day, different seasons, it always has something new. Truly one of the most magical places in America in terms of awe and epic passion. Listening to Jeff Shaara, son of the renowed Michael Shaara spin stories like he must have heard as a child is an enormous treat.
Feeling like I was riding with a battlefield historian.
Yes---perfect road trip length. Like a road trip in a road trip.
More scholars as friends to listen to in the car please!
I have read a number of Jeff Shaara's books and will continues to do so.
The details has it related to modern day locations. How the battlefield looks on those days and how they look today.
While the background is necessary, for one who has vistited the site several times I did not need it.
The reading was very good.
I might get some of the other tour guides later.
