This is the eighth book by William White and like the rest of his books, it is an excellent read-one you will have trouble putting down. For those who love ghost stories this book contains an excellent account of a newly deceased young man and his desperate attempts to communicate with his family members. It happened less than two years before the publication of this book. It is truly an amazing story and one that will give you an insight into the other side.
This book also contains some amazing stories of life and death struggles in remote places as well as stranded travelers finding the means to reach their homes when marooned without any resources for continuing their journey.
For those of you who love short stories, this book is for you; however, the author saved the best story for last. It is a story about a young man in the early sixties of the twentieth century who was a bare-knuckle fighter. He fought at cock-fights around the country as an added feature by the promoters of the cock-fighting venues. He took on all comers regardless of their weight or height advantages and remained undefeated. He weighed no more than one hundred and sixty pounds during this time period.
