Under A Flaming Sky by Daniel James Brown

Under A Flaming Sky by Daniel James Brown

It isn’t very often we have over 5 holds on a non-fiction book so we have ordered an extra copy of “Boys in the Boat” by Daniel James Brown.  This title has been on the best-seller list for months.

For those of you who are waiting, several of us agree it is worth the wait. If you also liked Timothy Egan’s “Big Burn” you may also want to read “Under a Flaming Sky”, an earlier title by Brown.

All three are historical narratives with good stories of improbable survival, triumph and tragedy.  They serve to keep us aware of our tentative hold on life and humanity.
