Recently, I've had the pleasure of writing jacket or website blurbs for several new books. One of these is James A. Misko's novel, As All My Fathers Were (Northwest Ventures Press, 2014). Here are my words of praise:
“If you want to know how the Platte River works, read James A. Misko’s absorbing and rambunctious tale of Seth and Richard Barrett, who must complete a journey up the river from its confluence with the Missouri to its source near North Platte, Nebraska, and back if they are to inherit the family farm. In As All My Fathers Were, you’ll learn the natural history of this once wild river that shaped the land and those who lived near it but in the past century has been broken by energy generation and the agricultural industry. Yet as Misko’s novel bears witness, the Platte still has the power to inspire the imagination and fine literature."
Jim will be in Lincoln on Saturday, October18, signing books at the Barnes & Noble at 5150 "O" Street at 11:00 and at the Barnes & Noble at 2910 Pine Lake Road from 2:00 to 4:00. I hope that he sells a million copies!
