    Very Highly Recommended- you must check it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It was very informative into the life of Prince Farrington and probhibition. I recommend this book for anyone who know of the Prince and for those who had family members- who remember him and the stories about. So if you want a good book to read this is the one,take it from someone who father and uncle fondly remebers tales and stories of Prince Farrington very well. I know my father will really enjoy this book this Christmas,scent he is the one who has fonds memories of Prince Farrington and my uncle does. Kim S.
