I found this book referenced in another source and read the e-book version. Written in 1941, it does provide 'color' of the period - as promised - and accurate detail historically as far as I can tell. It is dated, in the sense that its references to African-Americans either mimics the terminology of the time (1860's) or reflects the attitudes in vogue in the 1940's; I'm not sure which. That, plus gender discrimination, is problematic for me. But since I wanted to experience the 'feel' of the period in order to enhance the realism of a novel that I'm currently writing, it served my purposes. Overall, it's a valuable work in the historic sense.
