I chose this book because I’d never read anything written by Buffett, but I love his music. I didn’t expect much to be honest. I was just looking for something different than the murder mystery and emotional suspense that I usually read.
A Salty Piece of Land is more fantasy than anything. How can someone be in the right place at the right time? All. The. Time. I kept expecting the main character, Tully Mars, to wake from a crazy dream. Tully flees his home in Wyoming to avoid a run-in with the law. He takes his beloved horse, Mr. Twain, and heads south. From there it’s one incredible encounter after another. As bizarre as some of the events are in the story, I still got caught up in the excitement of the adventures and the message of hope and anything is possible as long as you believe.
If you need a break from vampires, time travel, and government espionage (well there is some of that), you should give this book a look.
Time to find another book to read.
