Eccentric characters abound in the Maggody series, and this title is no exception. All the Yankees coming to town for the filming of a Civil War battle reenactment would be enough to stir things up. But when you add rumors of saddlebags of gold hidden in the hills, there's no containing the madness. C.J. Critt, a master of memorable characters, has plenty to work with. She takes each character seriously and creates a voice that further illuminates his or her personality. Together they draw a vivid picture of the town. Critt's deft narration draws out the humor without overdoing it and presents a great introduction, or welcome back, to this little Arkansas town. J.E.M.
