Posted 5/13/2012: I received the book just two days after I ordered it, no worries about waiting for your order from Kari's Coins, Quilt & Books, Very fast with shipping. I am more than half way through the book already, it's one that is very hard to set down. This book is captivating right from the start and it draws you in to a world that in almost all cases not spoken of from Vietnam Vets. I'm in awe to what I have read so far and I have a new found appreciation to all that have served and or who gave there lives in Vietam. This is a must read to anyone wanting to know the truth about the life style some of our troops faced on a daily bases in Vietnam. You wont be disappointed purchasing Muddy Jungle Rivers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Not just a history, but a story.
You may see my name and think I'm biased. Well I am. This is my father's book. But you should still read my review.
I am in AWE of this story. My father never spoke to us of his time in Vietnam, so this is all new to me. He has done an AMAZING job making this not just a book of facts, but a story that anyone can get involved in - from page 1. I am not the type to pick a book up off the shelf that would be a true story of any war. My husband is active duty and has been serving in these current wars for over six years now - so all of this hits really close to home for me. This book, while I read it through my father's eyes, flows wonderfully regardless of whether or not you know him. You, the reader, will be able to put yourself in his shoes as he takes you on this dangerous journey that so many of our men went on, and sadly, so many that did not make it home. Nothing I can say will give my father's book justice. I find myself in tears when I think about what he and his crew went through...during the war and after. This story will move you in ways you may not expect.
