This book review is touching. For anyone that’s read The Fox Trails, you know that I held no punches and didn’t censor myself in sharing. It’s all in there -the good, the bad, and the ugly.

I invite all feedback, especially criticism; it’s important for potential customers. http://www.amazon.com/The-Fox-Trails-Adventure-Mississippi/dp/1499734166
