      What a great book Never again will I be able to walk along the Rockport or Fulton harbor and not think of Charlie Sweetwater

      Even better than first book, Thin Slice of Life Tighter writing, excellent weaving of the story of La Salle s exploration of Texas and modern life on the same coast Ready for the third book
