"The integrity of these people is beyond reproach, and all were excellent neighbors, but we have all done things in our lives that encouraged laughter, and maybe even a bit of gossip." With these words, D. Bardon Shreve embarks on another series of entertaining Smoke Hole tales.
Although Shook was a practicing alcoholic, he was an honest and caring person. Salem was a man of many talents - doctor, ventriloquist, magician. Did he also have supernatural powers? A grisly murder and questions still remain. D. Bardon Shreve completes his stories of "Smoke Holers' by relating his own compelling War Stories.
