Lane's book is filled with twists and intriguing history. Who knew that the debates we have today about security, liberty, and the role of a national secret police in America were going on over 150 years ago too. This book is well worth the read.

This work focuses on the pursuit of finding the source of the Nile by a cast of unique personalities. Not my favorite of Millard's works. It had a lot more betrayal then adventure in it. Nevertheless, the story is very interesting and engaging at times and is well worth the read.

If you are familiar with any of Ramsey's earlier works, this book will mainly be a refresher on Biblical/ successful view of wealth and finances. He does add many new real life stories in this work. Now if you are new to Ramsey, this is an excellent book!

Dan Abram's work on Lincoln is worth reading. It is not always a page turner, but does contain interesting aspects of Lincoln's law career and the times he lived in.

Hymns of the Republic is quite the journey. Set in the final year of the Civil War, S.C. Gwyne provides fascinating biographies of both famous and not so famous figures.

Brian Kilmeade's work on Lincoln and Frederick Douglass is timely, balanced, and concise. I highly recommend it.

An eye-opening history of the American West. After reading this work, you will gain a good understanding in how the mighty Comanche were defeated and the times they lived in.

Although it took longer to get into than her pervious works, Hero of the Empire is still a fascinating story. It show cases a young Winston Churchill and his courageous and vain exploits during the Boer War.

This book brings to light a neglected Founding Father, that certainly deserves a more prominent place in our nation's psyche. The writing style was engaging at times, but not consistently.

Quite a rollercoaster of a book. It is a story mainly about baseball and is filled with triumphs, tragedy, and some interesting encounters with WWII as the backdrop.

The West Point class of 1846 lived through some challenging times. Waugh's book is filled with insight into battles, friendships, and other interesting historic encounters.

After reading this book I have new respect for Thomas Jackson. This book is a must read for Civil War buffs.

This was an interesting story about two veterans from different worlds. It is a story of war, pain, and healing.
