Ghost Riders

I just finished this book by Sharyn McCrumb. Wow, it's been a long time since I've read a book in one sitting but this was just that good. It's about a husband and wife in the Civil War who fight together for the Union side of the Army in the N. Carolina mountains. The book is of course historical fiction...the main characters did exist and their pictures are featured in the front of the book. Some of the descriptive scenes about the atrocities of the guerrilla type fighting that went on in the Appalacians was unsettling. I highly recomend this to anyone who is interested in historical fiction, war stories, stories about the South.
