Great follow up to Warfield! Through wonderful narrative, the reader continues the journey young Thomas began in Warfield during the Civil War, and follows him to Memphis during the yellow fever epidemic of the late 1800s. Mr. Bargatze's thorough research of this time period is obvious. He gives intricate detail of the horrible effects of the epidemic on individuals, families, and communities. However, within this detail, is not lost the emotional story as Thomas uses his knowledge of such literary works as the Bible, Whitman and Irving to try to make sense of the trials and tribulations he is witnessing. I have read textbook descriptions of this time period, but it was poignant to experience the horrors of the epidemic through the eyes of Thomas. I am looking forward to seeing how the scales continue to tip in Thomas's life in Mr. Bargatze's next sequel, Hurricane Creek.
