Ferrol Sams' "Run With the Horsemen" Trilogy
a book list by Peter, the avid reader who runs Flashlight Worthy
This trilogy is little known but much beloved by anyone who reads it. It was recommended to me by a close friend and I've since recommended it to several friends. Every one of us ends up absolutely loving the books. To be fair, the first book starts out a little slow. But once you get about 50 pages in you won't stop until you're done.
Oh, what's it about? A very smart boy growing up in poor, rural Georgia during the Great Depression. Beyond that, I want you to discover it for yourself. :)
If you've read this far, I should let you know that in my opinion, the 3rd book is not quite as... compelling as the first two.
It's not that it's not well written. On it's own, it's a truly excellent book. But when compared to the first two, it falls just a wee bit short. Why? It's not that the quality of the writing declines — I think it's because the subject matter changes and with it, the tone.
