    Reviews –

    Straight Pipes is a unique blend of practical application to bikers in the form of a devotion. Barbara not only identifies with bikers, but is one herself. You will especially enjoy these devotions as they are relevant and to the point. John Ogden, Chairman of the Board of Directors/CEO of Christian Motorcyclists Association

    Second to None is an interesting and unusual book which gives a unique and very personal look at the Korean War. What makes this book different from most of this genre is the intimate and personal quality of each individual story. Each narration focuses on one or two specific events of combat or related events and is told in the first-person without embellishment. In fact, the self deprecating humor and complete honesty of these soldiers as they tell their often horrific stories gives richness to the text that is refreshing and extremely interesting to read. Colonel Larry Mayes USAF Retired

    Second to None is an excellent book showcasing the integrity, the sacrifice, and the emotions of our soldiers as they served and defended the rights of the USA in the war in Korea. If you like/love history, if you know a soldier, if you are indifferent to our soldiers who are giving their lives for our freedom, you need to read this book. Jennifer McLeMore, writer
