this book was a gift to a person who loves literature and I can't tell you how many times they have called me to thank me for the book. the book tells the history of unknow and known African American authors, their struggles and their works. The stories are excel lent and my friend says he hasn't even got to the poems, written by the the authors, trying to savory every part of the book. Highly recommended

I am a reader and this book is one of the most thrilling and engrossing I have read in a very long time. The only thing negative I can say about it is that it had to end. Buy the book; it's a beautifully penned account of the lives of truly amazing American men, during a trying time in our nation's history. And you'll learn a lot about long boats!

Got this for my 7-year-old grandson....he is still a little too young to read this but will soon be old enough to understand all the words...Great history lesson for American children. We need more American History taught to our young kids growing up.

Erik Larson will entertain, educate, and amaze with his story telling of an actual period in American history. We have two parallel stories here: the undertaking and creation of America's first World's Fair ever, scheduled to take place in Chicago, and a charming, good-looking madman who views the throngs of visiting women to the city as his playing field for depravity and murder. It's an a totally engrossing story, all true, and all accounts, conversations, and exchanges documented. Larson doesn't miss around. Should The Devil in the White City be the reader's first experience with Erik Larson, I assure you, it won't be his or her last. I have recommended this book to many and they, in turn, have recommended it to many more. Get it, and hold on to your hat. It's going to be a bumpy ride.

this book is very heartwarming and sweet. I really enjoyed it. It talks about what can be accomplished when everyone works together. It was written by a friend of mine who is an amazing woman. The author, and her sisters, spend time going to schools in period dress and put on plays talking about African American history. She is also a master quilter. Go Kat, keep up the good work.

Hubby is a civil war buff with many many books on the subject, hard to find him a book with a different angle. He was completely engrossed in reading this one from a woman's perspective. Very happy with it as it was a Christmas present for him. Big Hit!
