A pre-Civil War novel about fairness. “Fairness! Man cannot live comfortably without fairness!” “A fantastic legacy by the author, Robert Carson . . . of high quality and extraordinary. I would recommend it for our library shelves and would encourage my students to read it” (James L. Springer, Middle School History Teacher, Long Island, KS). "The Quarry is a fine story. The writing, especially the description of the natural surroundings, is excellently done. Your knowledge of flora and fauna shows through as well as your use of occasional wit and your understanding of human nature. . . . I especially admire your prose for its appropriateness to the story and for its beauty. . . . There is so much to think about here, not only in exterior solutions but in the depths of one's soul" (Jenifer Robinson, English Teacher, Kane High School, Kane, PA). "Dad was not able to publish his novel before he died, but he hoped that his children would complete the project for him. I am grateful that I could fulfill Dad's wish, as a gift to my family and to our friends from Kane who knew and cared about my father" (Mary L. Reehling, daughter of Robert Carson).About the Author:
