review 1: I just don't know. . . Put in The Odyssey, Pilgrim's Progress, and any other similar epics, set it all in the eastern U.S. from Vermont to Gatlinburg in 1864.

We read this as a Chautauqua book and had a great discussion about truth in fiction.

Kind of trippy. Not sure it really hung together.
