The following book review was written by Bobbi King:
Life in Civil War America
By Michael O. Varhola
Publisher: Family Tree Books, Cincinnati, OH
A paperback book with 319 pages, with illustrations, drawings, images, photographs, appendices and an index
If this book was a house up for sale, its curbside appeal would create a traffic jam in the neighborhood.
The tan matte paper pages and historic font give the book an “old-timey” feel, and reminds me of when I pick up an old yellowed newspaper and I just know I’m going to like what I find when I start opening the pages and read through the columns. Mr. Varhola indicates that this as a second edition follow-up to his first edition Everyday life during the Civil War (1999).
