A Read That Won’t Make You ‘Melancholy’

lewis.jpgIt’s been awhile since we thumbed through the Book Sense picks list. And that’s a shame. Think of all the great reads we’re missing! As always, you can pick up gratis copies of Book Sense lists at the old neighborhood bookstore. Or you can go online.

Here’s a title I have my eye on: The Melancholy Fate of Capt. Lewis by Michael Pritchett and here’s what Book Sense has to say about it: “High school history teacher Bill Lewis, in the midst of writing a book about explorer Meriwether Lewis, reveals that he shares the historic Lewis trait of depression and madness. Fascinated by the hellish adventures of Captain Lewis, morbidly drawn to the downward spiral of his biographer, I read to the end, as Bill Lewis glimpses a ray of hope for his sanity, his son, and his marriage.”
