This book is laid in a county seat town 26 miles from Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1885. One would have to be better versed in east Tennessee geography to determine the likeliest real-life name of the fictional Bourbonville, but there are a lot of good things about this book, and it tells a real story, and ends with satisfactory explanation of what went on. It is at times unreal, but I suppose fiction is entitled to be such. Some of the comic relief stretches of the story became boring--such as trying to get a cow to move. Looking to my youth I found the inability to get the cow to stand up and move on incredible indeed, but maybe in Tennessee cows are different.
