Where Peachtree Meets Sweet Auburn: A Saga of Race and Family - book cover picture

I have never been one to like historical non-fiction, but this book blew me away. The writing style is very engrossing. The first 30 pages or so is on the dry side and filled with too many names and dates to keep up with, but it's definitely worth it to work your way through it. After the Civil War is over and Reconstruction begins, the book settles nicely on the lives of two key figures in Atlanta's history (one white and one black) and follows both families for several generations. BOTH stories are equally important and fascinating. The reader gets both a sense of what it was like to be considered a second-class citizen and have to fight relentlessly for rights and respect, AND what it was like to be a part of the white establishment and try to evoke change and maintain respect. This book is not just a book for Atlantans, like myself. It's lessons of struggle, determination and courage are timeless and without geographic limits.

We Were Soldiers Once... and Young: Ia Drang--The Battle That Changed the War in Vietnam - book cover picture

It's one of the best military history books I've read. The authors describe vividly in minute-count details of what's happening in the battle. The reality of horror of what struck US force in the 1st bloodiest battle in Vietnam really sucked me into reading page to page. The description, explaination, the story of book was so real I felt one in the battle myself. Another plus, the book is based on 2 sided of the stories (US as well as Vietnam) thus making it so historically valuable.

Worth the trip....


Book title: Night Storm
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Night Storm - book cover picture

Any time I read a book and it can bring forth an emotion, it's got to be well written. Catherine Coulter's book always have that effect on me. And this one is no exception. I hate books that are predictable. Yes they all have happy endings, but it's the journey that makes it worth the time to read. And a trip with Ms. Coulter is always interesting. Hearts and flowers are great once in a while. But a steady diet is very boring. Give me a struggle, a knock down drag out fight, a handsome rogue with a heart, and a heroine who doesn't always look like Cindy Crawford and I'm in heaven. If you want everything sugar coated try Mary Poppins. But if you want to laugh, cry or just get ticked off... Give Ms. Coulter a try.

The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century - book cover picture

This is a book that makes you think about the world around you. When you do you will realize that the author is correct in his thesis that the world has gotten flatter. It many ways this book is scary and in others it is thrilling to know what we have accomplished. But it also points out just how fat and lazy we Americans have gotten about the jobs we think we are to good to do. If we don't watch out the world will finish overtaking us and we will be a third world nation!!! Just some food for thought!

Almost too much for even a Sackett to handle


Book title: Mustang Man : The Sacketts (Sacketts)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Mustang Man : The Sacketts (Sacketts) - book cover picture

Louis L'Amour really was a master at his craft. "Mustang Man" is a fairly short book, but it is packed with action and intrigue. There are several groups in the book looking for 300 pounds of gold. The hero, Nolan Sackett, gets caught up in the race when he tries to help a stranded group.

The book starts off with Nolan on the run, he beat a man to the draw, and the man's friends come after Nolan intending to kill him. Nolan has a run in with another man when Nolan needs a fresh horse. A few pages later Nolan comes to help a group, and the group tries to kill him. And the story never slows down.

This is a fairly typical Louis L'Amour, a very well written story. It is a page turner, and is hard to put down. If you enjoy a good western, pick this book up; it is worth reading.

The Age of Revolution: Europe, 1789-1848 - book cover picture

The author has, with this book, achived something great. He has managed to write about one of the most complex periods in European and World history in an acurate and detailed manner, whilst keeping it throughly readable. Why past reviews have attacked a lack of mention regarding the American Revolution escapes me. I would suggest that it is the French Revolution that warrents far greater attention due to its profound effects on political systems worldwide, and this book dose just that. For anybody interested in the transformation from absolutist to nationalist Europe, this is a mst read.

Binding: Paperback
Stargirl - book cover picture

Stargirl is about a wonderful free spirited high school girl who unlike all of her peers, doesn't care what anyone thinks of her. She is of course shunned from the "cool crowd" for being "different." But that doesn't bother Stargirl. She continues to display acts of kindness for enemies and her one friend, Dorie Dillson. While everyone is busy trying to find reasons to hate her, Leo Borlock does the exact opposite. He falls in love with her. As "everyone" shuns both Leo and Stargirl, Leo comes face to face with a problem. Leave the girl he loves, or be considered "cool" again.
Stargirl is a wonderful book written by Jerry Spinelli, his best ever! This book moved me. IT helps you realize that yes, you can be different.
