This book was in perfect shape. The Story is one that I am familiar with, since my mother's
family lived in Lincoln County and knew the Coe family well. I did enjoy George's tales of the events as they escalated into a war. I don't think he exagerated too much, but sounded like swapping yarns around the campfire.
