5 of 5 Stars - "90 minutes...of a grand story teller['s life]. Once you start you will want to keep reading. I recommend this work for those who enjoy historical fiction" - Timothy E. Massey

5 of 5 Stars - "I kept picturing Hanson on the gallows, desperately trying to spin the tale of his life for a few more minutes...listening to him was like listening to my favorite uncle telling stories that were sometimes funny and sometimes sad, but always delivering a deep message about the decisions we make and how these decisions add up to a human life. This book is Forrest Gump-ish in its expansiveness...a deeply personal and delightfully playful romp through a very interesting time in American history" - Z_editor

5 of 5 Stars - "Dr. Hanson’s life path took him through various vocations, some questionably unethical, but understandable, until he found his true calling to become a Doctor. His practice of herbal medicines, blended with the famous Bumgardner Rye Whiskey, healed the sick and saved many lives. His compassion and dedication to his patients was heartwarming and commendable...a very interesting, exciting and highly conceivable novel that captures a moment of time in American history" - Penny Cates
