I’ve been following Mr Heaton’s writing career for many years. He continues to amaze his readers with eloquent language. His last gripping nonfiction had his readers lost and struggling through the desert. An author that should continue feeding his hungry audience with more of his down home publications.
Darlene Almer says
Kevin is a member of my family so I’ve had front row access to his writings. Loved the latest book about his very challenging experience being lost in the “wilderness “. I highly recommend you to purchase the book and enjoy the story.
