Conversations With a Dead Man by Doug Lucas

5STARSI listened to Conversations with a Dead Man on my kindle.  It is special book just like your listening to someone special telling stories about his life, while dead and a live.
 John Wesley Elder  starts at the ending of his life, in 1834,  where he made own casket,stone chose his clothes to be buried in.  His sons did not agree.
He is telling his story with lots of humor makes the history very entertaining and easy to hear.
 But talking about cutting off a leg was hard to hear. Deaths from measles, cholera, & other deases that masses died.
In 1700s talks about indentured ,slaves, french indian war, war of independant, about making furniture and barttering it for goods he needs.
I really enjoyed listening to the history he made it seam so real.
He regrets having his wife buried beside him, because she still complains and his Indian Women who was his love even though she did not marry he took her back to her tribe John still misses.
I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review from librarything.
