    Excellent Civil War History

    This 1909 book is a very fine account of the political and military events in MO from the secession of SC(1860) up to and including the Battle of Pea Ridge, AR, in 1862. The book is especially noteworthy in that it contains a great deal of the contemporary correspondence from the principal military and political leaders on both sides of the conflict.The book is dedicated to "the Union Men of Missouri" and has a definite northern bias which is especially evident in the first chapter which contains an extremely unflattering portrait of pre-war southern society. But the author is relatively even handed throughout the remainder of the book and even seems to develop a grudging respect for Confederate general Sterling Price.My main criticism(and it's a relatively small one) is that the book stops with Pea Ridge since, in the author's words, "the battle for Missouri had been fought and won". Though this is correct, it must be added that Sterling Price again invaded MO... 4/5 rw-chesterfield,MO - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 5/5 On the Island (Beaver Island, MI) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Struggle for Missouri (Kindle Edition) I always thought the Battle of Wilson's Creek was a minor Civil War skirmish it was a big event in the war. I wish the Kindle book had illustrations though, without maps it' s a little hard to follow.

    An excellent 70's southern rock band! You can't go wrong !

    0 4/5 Kim Mandigo (mandigo@net-link.net) (USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Best of Missouri (Audio CD) I first listened to this band in the mid to late 70's and really enjoyed it. They sound similiar to many of the southern rock bands of the 70's. I owned the first album (which is long gone now) but this "Best of" is an excellent CD. It is missing a few tracks from the first album but is nevertheless great! You can't go wrong with this one if you enjoy southern rock. Has a strong Johnny VanZant influence to it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 25, 1999

    Magnificent storytelling - and all true

    The best historical writing combines the quality of scholarship with that of literature, and that's what we have here. First published in 1947, this book is a deserved classic. It's the story of the Rocky Mountain fur trade in the latter half of the 1830s, a time of outrageous characters and extraordinary deeds, set against the finest landscape. DeVoto resolutely refuses to judge people of the 1830s by the standards of a later century. This is what infuriates the "politically correct". But DeVoto is surely right - any other approach might tell you something about the historian's own time but would shed little light on the period under study. Instead DeVoto's honesty brings his characters vividly to life. That doesn't only mean the fur trappers. He has a detailed and discerning knowledge of the Plains Indians, and appreciates the cultural, linguistic and indeed political diversity of the various nations. The Native Americans emerge as striking individuals in... 5/5 William R. Strouse (colorado springs, co United States) - See all my reviews, December 3, 1998

    Wagh!

    Across the Wide MissouriMr. DeVoto has a passion for this subject and a passion for the characters that live in it.Here are some excerpts from the book: "There were few delicate feeders in the mountains...The river tribes liked the green, putrid flesh of buffalo drowned while crossing the ice and hauled ashore weeks later, `so ripe, so tender, that very little boiling is required.' They ate the kidneys raw... the white man would eat the liver raw as soon as it was taken; he seasoned it with the gall or sometimes with gunpowder...he had no more tableware than his belt knife - gravy, juices and blood running down his face, forearms and shirt. He wolfed the meat and never reached repletion. Eight pounds a day was standard ration for Hudson Bay employees [but often eat twice that amount]...melted fat was gulped by the pint. Kidney fat could be drunk without limit...Hump and boss boil in a kettle, cracked marrow bones sizzle by the fire...Camp is... 5/5 0, June 27, 2005

    Fun shape for quality board!

    0 5/5 LoLo - See all my reviews This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, North Carolina State (Kitchen) I have a few standard boards from this company and I love them. Great quality and they last forever (you shold oil them occasionally though). I love the State shapes! I ordered California and was surprised at the size and functionality. I had planned on just giving it as a gift to be put out as decoration but you can do fun things with it. I got creative and put the board together with wine, cheese and nuts and brought it as a host gift. It was a total hit! She used it to serve the cheese and other appetizers The board itself look and feels really expensive and the shape is so fun. I would love to get more for Christmas gifts (mom, don't look) but Amazon seems to be out of stock on a lot of states. I think it would be really fun to create a theme gift basket around the State. Absolutely recommend. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 8, 2013

    Bamboo Cutting Board Massachusetts State

    0 5/5 lcarr "01034" - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, Massachusetts State (Kitchen) I purchased this for a gift for a dignitary from Iceland. I thought it would be easy to slip into their luggage going back. This quality of this board far exceeded my expectations. It was beautifully made and more sturdy that I had thought it would be. I was concerned that the "cape cod" part might break off but I am sure that even under rigorous use this would not be an issue. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 13, 2014
