COMMUNITY REVIEWS

A good introduction submitted by hiwatson09 on August 18, 2020, 10:16pm As someone new to the region, this often read like a list of names and dates, and I wish Boyd went into more detail on many of the stories. However, it was a fantastic summary, pulling together many stories I'd heard in pieces. He is rather kinder to some characters than seems necessary. But it was a delight to find out at the end who Katherine Brown was!
