Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
Reading The Life and Times of Persimmon Wilson by Nancy Peacock is an immersive experience.The history of this book is that of slavery and the fate of the First Nations; be ready to be uncomfortable at the atrocities described and the language used. The first person-narrative creates a deeply personal memoir-like feel; I walk through Persimmon Wilson's life with him and "live" the history through his eyes.
