What Is It?

For this review I was given a digital copy of At Home In Dogwood Mudhole - Volume One: Nothing That Eats by Franklin Sanders.  This is the first book in a brand new series.  It's is written in the first person, sort of like a journal.  

The book gives the history of a family and talks a lot about war reenactment, which is a big part of their family life.  The family decides to go to a more simple way of life.  This was the first in a series so it didn't get too much into the story, but gave a lot of background and really got you to feel like you knew the characters. 

There is a lot of history in this book.  The family is very into war reenactment so that plays into the book quite a bit.  There were quite a few photos that gave you a glimpse of what reenactments were like.  I thought this was super interesting considering so many of the wars were right here in the South.

My Opinion:

This book wasn't really my style.  I prefer novels over autobiography type stories.  I did think the war information was interesting though.  There was also good character development.  I would like to read the second and third book since I feel that those are where the main story will take place.
