Got my copy early from Amazon and read it last week. Gene, you have done a phenomenal piece of work transcribing Shep’s army stories and presenting them in chronological order. Followers got a taste of Shep’s army life in print several decades ago with Fistfull of Fig Newtons. Now we have a brand new volume to devour and display proudly in our bookshelves (but in my case, only if my brother-in-law gives my copy back). Thank you, thank you, thank you! And dare we ask for more please at some point in the future?
Tom, very glad you liked it. Labor of love. I expect there will be more Shep to come!
