The Best Damned Squirrel Dog (Ever)

The Best Damned Squirrel Dog (Ever)

Josh Langston

Fantasy / History / Thriller

This short Civil War ghost story, set in the contemporary South, shows how the act of settling a simple bet can sometimes change history.Those who survived the horrible battles of the American Civil War are talked about almost as much as the many thousands who did not. And what about those who should have fought, but didn't? Hardly anyone talks about them, or the many reasons they might have missed the opening volley.The Best Damned Squirrel Dog (Ever) tells one such story. Though the characters and location are fictional, the author's in-depth knowledge of local history brings the story to life and makes this a great read for anyone interested in love, pets, the 150th anniversary of the "great unpleasantness," or the war itself.
