Adam Tavel does many things in this book but none more heroic than the Esgate family history from 1833 to 1910. This porthole into one family fans out to historical detail, personal loss, and chilling endurance. There are other vectors of history - an Antarctic expedition, 1915; and "White House Seance 1863," a stunning take on Lincoln's death. What I like best about Tavel is his lack of doubt. He tackles the truth in every situation as if story were his own natural resource. There's a measured authority in every line; and when he talks about the present time there's a cellular reality, touched with hope, saying what must not be lost. --MidWest Book Review
