When I was a kid, my parents had a book: '1847--Year of Decision!' I never read it. I still don't know all of what made that year so critical. No doubt if I found the book again I would learn a lot.

But I have already learned new things just from watching your trailer. I will read your book with pleasure.

Wd that have been Year of Decision 1846?

Bernard de Voto? MSP is rather by way of being an expert - on de Voto and his subject, the frontier.

And I'm delighted & obliged of course to all yr kindness.

That is the book. I probably should have read it. My mother may have gotten it when she went through her fangirl thing for President Polk. I was not paying much attention at the time.

When it comes to mid-20thC music, esp American, it's MSP as picks 'em. He has An Ear.
