FOWL Fall Kick-off Program

Tues Aug 26th 6pm at the library

Skip Tucker, author of Pale Blue Light



Pale Blue Light is a rare espionage thriller set in the Civil War. Young Rabe Canon leaves his family's Alabama plantation at the start of the Civil War, befriending Major Thomas Jackson of Virginia Military Institute -- later the esteemed Stonewall Jackson.


 When Jackson suffers a mortal wound at the Battle of Chancellorsville, Canon suspects foul play. Canon undertakes a cross-country journey to discover the truth behind Jackson's death, one that entangles Canon with a beautiful Yankee spy as he tries to avoid capture in gold-rich California.


 Author Skip Tucker combines historical accuracy with plenty of gunfire and intrigue for an epic, entertaining novel.
