This statement best describes this book: “Given unprecedented access to Tompall, this book tells his story through his own words and through the words of those who knew him best!!”
Kevin Glaser has captured to true spirit of Tompall by using letters to home from the Army. Tompall seemed to understand life a lot better than most at that age. He knew he should get his life together before venturing into other things. And the fact he should find work that he enjoyed. Reminded me of the words of my grandfather at that same time period. I even went and started reading my own Army letters to my mother. What an eye opener. So, if you are thirsty for Tompall information. I recommend this book. I intend to read it again. And I haven’t picked up a book in 40 years.
