Greg B.’s book reviews

Wow! What a book! This was not a simple murder. It was a conspiracy that made waves in the Irish communities worldwide. This book shows you how well the Irish people were organized in the 1880's. And gives a hint at how well they stayed organized for decades later. I recommend this book!

This is an interesting little book describing the newly discovered Virginia Colony. This book was based on trips to the new colony during the lat 1580's and is one of the earliest glimpses into the native inhabitants, the trees found there and also what kind of animals and plants that can be used as a food source. This was needed information for any brave adventurer that wanted to try a new start in the new world. As a note though, since the book is very old I found that while reading it replace the letter u's with v, and the letter v with u's and it is easier to understand the words. Some words also may have been spelled differently long ago.

I enjoyed the book. It gave a good insight into the lives of a small group of people in the mid 1800's who wanted to live in a commune of subsistance farming. It was a grand experiment to see if they as a group could live independant from the outside world and survive, and not just survive, but thrive. It was an experimental Religous commune. It lasted for a few years, with good times and bad times.

I read this book a few years ago and I think it gives a shocking look into the miss-handlings of serious issues within the catholic church. They need to weed out the bad priest, not protect them. How can yo serve God and be an Inspiration to people when you ranks contain Godless scum within there numbers. I think the reports of the last 20 years go a long way to add credibility to the author. Anyone who doubts the book and the author's story have to ignor what has gone on in our age and time.

Today we have great electronic tools and devices for the investigation of haunings. But in the late 1800's they just recorded whatthey saw and heard. This book is interesting in the methods they used, but the book does seem to drag on.

I found this book very interesting. It is a Journal of a travel into the Eastern Ozarks of the new little explored Louisiana Purchase. This journey took place in the winter of 1818-1819 and the two adventurers were ill equipped for there journey and had to survive by there own wits many times. I recommend this book, it allows you to almost step back to an earlier era when the country was new and unexplored.

I liked the book. It shows that cats are intelligent and make good companions. Also since the book was written in 1900, it gives an early glimpse into the breeds and cat shows of the late 1800's.
