The Finger People
~A Civil War Horror~

Kirkus Reviews

A fine study of Civil War squalor and carnage - spotlights the Union attack on the Confederate stronghold Fort Henry, where a timid rebel cook discovers something even grislier than the usual horrors of war: the Finger People. 


Bruns has tension building down to an art form. I was squirming in my seat to find out what would happen in the end.
