Very well done; I felt like I was right there with Billy Jack and Elvira May eating corn fritters and fat back, drinking water from the creek....Thanx for a great read; enjoyable, interesting and enlightening.

I enjoyed reading your wonderful book. I read it in two days. Could not put it down. You made the history come alive on the pages and I so enjoyed learning more about the war through the lives of Billy Jack and Elvira May. Your book will be a valued addition to my library.

I can only hope my work (novel) will be as magnificent as your own, characters so deep and endearing, settings so beautiful and full of lush life, themes so intriguing and thought provoking.

Your description of the North Carolina mountains was wonderful and I could picture the characters as I read about them.
