Book Review: Bailey’s Blood
Families hide skeletons. Dr. Bailey candidly empties his family’s collection by penning an interesting, fast moving, episodic, recollection of historical episodes created from actual news paper entries and court records. Dr. Bailey portrays feelings that served to develop an early America of support…… or hatred of government. Warring factions of families are given life as Dr. Bailey reports possible conversations as actions develop. He provides the reader with glimpses of struggles of pride of family and pride of gender as situations arose.
The reader is left with a feeling of understanding as to “how” history changed. The “why” of historical significance and the impact upon the immediate area(s) in Kentucky should provide the casual reader and serious history student a true learning experience.
