Another frustration with the book is her constant insertion of lame humor and liberal politics.
Vowell's passion for learning about the details of history and her sense of humor as she shares her search-journey with her readers make this book time well spent.

Love ALL Sarah's books -- I'm hooked. Keep writing, Sarah ! Great for book clubs too.Published 3 months ago by iluvcats
