A Very Interesting Work of Fiction with A Lesson

"The Man Without a Country" is a work guide of fiction written in 1863. It is a parable type short story written during the Civil War. It is a cautionary story about the importance of country and patriotism. I completely enjoyed both reading the book on Kindle and listening on audiobook. The narrator is very good, but seems to me to be more of a "blue collar" type reading, not a melodramatic type reading. I liked it very much. I enjoyed the entire reading and listening experience. Thank You...
