Hey Steven! Here's my review. Feel free to use/edit it as you see fit. Some additional comments follow.
"Open Brother Against Brother and be prepared to meet and know civil war participants like you met and followed the wide range and depth of characters in Lonesome Dove. Author Steven Shepard paints not just the brutal introduction of war in the 1860s, but the impact it had on the lives of soldiers and civilians alike, including Native Americans. He brings to life not just a time of war but lives lived in a culture having challenges barely understood today. Be prepared to turn the pages faster and faster and to discover the trials of the main participants, plus violence, sex and an unforgiving society, all mixed with the turmoil of a war pitting Brother Against Brother." --Wayne McFarland, Author, Tales From The Day
