Albert James Pickett writes about a history he is passionate about. The early history of Alabama. Unlike other Alabama history books you may read however, his view is very unique. He lived at a time when he knew many of the original founders of the state of Alabama, and he interviewed many eye witnesses to the events he writes about.
He writes with a zeal and narrative fashion that makes the book a delightful read. His failure to provide footnotes shouldn’t be looked at as making the book less worthy, at a time when footnotes were made for documented evidence, he was writing about personal and eyewitness evidence.
