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.
There is no necessary connection between the desire to lead and the ability to lead, and even less the ability to lead somewhere that will be to the advantage of the led. --Bergen Evans
