review 1: I got this as a free book from goodreads from the author. My husband is a history major and so we decided to read it together and we both have enjoyed it. The Last Leaf tells the stories of people who are the last survivors or witnesses of certain famous events. It was fascinating to read about the people who experienced these things first hand. It brought these events in history alive and made you want to find out more about them. I would recommend this book to anyone who is fascinated by history.
review 2: lutz's book sets out to interview the last living people to witness various historical or other events. he interviews the last living civil war widows, the last living pitcher to throw a homerun pitch to babe ruth in his famous 1927 season, and many others.
... more the book is interesting but i wish the interviews had been more in depth. he covers a wide range of people and situations, but i was almost always left wanting more. while his research was interesting and he recapped the various historical events the interviews are shallow. less
