    I am just crazy in love with this cute, clever, sweet, well written book in which The Canterbury Tales are reworked by fans on a tour bus pilgrimage honoring Dale Earnhardt The characters are flawed, yet warm blooded and appealing, and the story sparkles with subtle humor Some reviewers said this book was for NASCAR fans, but I enjoyed itbecause I was so ignorant of NASCAR and found this book a great primer on the subject Since I was reading the Kindle version on my PC, I kept a Mozilla I am just crazy in love with this cute, clever, sweet, well written book in which The Canterbury T...

    I m a big fan of McCrumb s Ballad series, but had put off reading this book because I fully expected not to like it I grew up in Wilkesboro, where if you weren t an Earnhardt fan you were deemed a heretic, and I was never, ever a Dale fan However, I clearly remember his death and I mourned with the rest of the racing community But I found the book on CD, so I gave it a shot, and I was mesmerized I have always been impressed by McCrumb s attention to fac...

    One suspects Ms McCrumb has a whim of steel, given the premise of this book is about as unlikely as the unicorn she has gazing at the departing Noah s ark Pulling it off requires a minor miracle, apropos of the secular deification of Dale Earnhardt, and she does it with panache The pilgrims are a very diverse group, and their characterizations are well drawn Strangers to start with, the story is much about how they get on together and cohere I don t know much about NASCAR, but the technic One suspects Ms McCrumb has a whim of steel, given the premi...

    I really want to re read thisa loose retelling of the Canterbury Tales all set in the contemporary USA featuring people dealing with the death of Dale Sr Amazing.

    The story revolves around a group of Dale Earnhart fans who take a bus trip to remember Dale a year after his death The characters were wonderful and very diverse There is quite a bit of information about drivers and the different race tracks that they visit, which I found quite interesting.
