I asked my friend Mark Lewis of Tennessee to consider writing a review of this new book as Mark has an eye and insight for traditional and historic items. He realily agreeed. I am happy that he submitted this review….

Mark and Debbie LewisHere is a short bio of Mark and wife.  Mark & Debbie Lewis have been involved in the muzzleloading and Living History hobbies since the late 1970s.  What started out as a Kentucky Rifle kit from J.C. Penny’s soon blossomed into a lifelong passion for recreating historical objects and impressions.  Together they have participated in hundreds of events across the country spanning time periods from the 1750s to the 1940s.  They along with their sons Jason and Gabriel have provided historical music for numerous different venues over the years.  Debbie makes all of her own clothing, hats, and accessories.  Mark makes most of his leather accouterments and reworks virtually everything he buys to make it more historically correct and ascetically pleasing.
Since moving back to Tennessee from Florida four years ago they have focused on the 1780-1820 time period providing historical music and interpretation for the Jame K. Polk Home in Columbia and Historic Bledsoe’s Station in Castilian Springs.
Mark is currently pursuing his membership in the American Mountain Men.  While their sons have moved on, this duo still continues to make beautiful music together.
