Video review of Manhunt by James L Swanson
Here’s me again… turning up like a bad penny. This time I am rambling on and reviewing Manhunt by James L. Swanson. Non fiction is my thing and this is the account of how John Wilkes Booth murdered Abraham Lincoln and then managed to escape his pursuers for 12 days. It’s a pretty good book and the description of the pursuit is very interesting. It’s remarkable that Booth, an actor, managed to stay free for so long especially considering that he injured himself while murdering the president (he hurt his leg as he leapt on to the stage at Ford Theater). The rather long full title of this book is Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer.
