Booknotes IV (April '11)

New Arrivals:

1. The Dogs of War: 1861 by Emory M. Thomas (Oxford Univ Pr, 2011).

2. Confederate Outlaw: Champ Ferguson and the Civil War in Appalachia by Brian D. McKnight (LSU Pr, 2011).

I admired McKnight's Contested Borderland: The Civil War in Appalachian Kentucky and Virginia (UP of Kentucky, 2006) and expect his Ferguson book to be an improvement over Thomas Mays's recent biography.
