Hey Patrick, Hope you are having a great Sunday Afternoon, I just wanted to take the time to say Thankyou for giving your book away for free on Amazon Yesterday. I wanted to get a copy it was going to be a little while. I could not put it down last night for anything as I sit up till 3 AM reading it last night. I can say your Accounts seemed pretty accurate with the actual History even though you changed a few names. It really helped me Gain a new perspective of Pad Pennywell and why he definatly wanted to make sure that John West never came back from the Dead. My Ancestors had a part in the Nightrider Saga. My 3rd Great Grandmother Victorine Flores Carter Desadier was an eye witness to the murder of the Frame Boys. They tried to recruit her father Capt. Jose Flores into the Gang. He died at the Battle of Mansfield, I would definatly love to see the West-Kimbell Clan come to life in Movie Form. It is not Just local history and Family History, It definatly built a foundation in Winn Parish as well. I definatly hope to read more from you in the future. May God Bless you and have a Great Weekend.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book about Pad and the West outlaws. Simply put, Pad was a free man who got caught up into slavery again. He was enslaved by West and the outlaws. The outlaws committed crimes against newcomers through town. Pad started to feel hopeless, it took a good while before justice is served to the outlaws. You will enjoy this book and it's extremely short. Enjoy!
Great book about a time and place of true happenings in central Louisiana. Absolutely needs to have a movie made about this true story of serial killers before the term “serial killers” was a thing. These people were ruthless and evil. So glad this story is being told!!
I so enjoyed reading this book. It made you feel as if you were right there with them. Anyone interested in any kind of history about Louisiana needs to read Pad Pennywell. I commend the author for writing this and sharing it with us and for all those that helped in any way to make this possible. Great job Patrick!
I enjoyed the book Pad Pennywell by Patrick Horn very much. I appreciated reading a real representation of the struggles endured by people of color in the 1800's and how they were able to overcome through all the adversity they faced. It is a great story of love and friendship.
