|"("The True Story of Manse Jolly, Part I") is honest and powerful and never less than utterly convincing. A really first-rate historical novel...dense with the details of life, teeming with living people - more real than history, as good fiction tends to be."--Author Jack Matthews, Ohio University|
"Those who are interested in Civil War history, and they are legion, will find this book a fascinating and easy read."--Tony Kiss, Asheville, N.C., "Citizen-Times"
