This review is from: The Impending Crisis, 1848-1861 (Paperback)
David M Potter's book "The Impending Crisis" is magnificent in its vivid portrail of the sectional conflict in the 1850's. If you ever thought the 1850's was merely a prelude to the Civil War, this book will make you think twice. It's vivid descriptions make the 1850's come alive with unique characters and personalities, that make this book a true pleasure to read. The author's dramatic use of words makes for one of the book's greatest impact on the reader. The book is a bit long, but well worth the time and patience it takes to read it. Once you read this book, you'll never look at the 1850's in the same way again.
