I mentioned these on another string when I got them, but now I've finished them. . .two books by two friends. . .
Bob Dotson's American Story
Dan Stashower's The Hour of Peril: The Plot to Kill Lincoln Before the Civil War
Bob's book brings 40 years of reporting on everyday Americans vividly to life. Dan's book is non-fiction but reads like a good crime novel.
Both were great deck reading.
