    1 thought on “The Chandler Heritage”

    1. Read this on a recommendation and wondered a little at its low, low profile. Have you heard of it? Neither had I.Turns out the author was a prolific writer under several pseudonyms, mostly of westerns, gritty noire, and heroic fiction. Still, Haas and his work barely register on the interwebs.Well, maybe this story isn't Shōgun of the South, but I enjoyed it anyway. The characters, for the most part, are well-defined and engaging (sometimes vivid). Nevertheless, the book is primarily plot-drive [...]

    2. The prodigal son of a calvinistic textile mill owner comes home from WWI to take over the business. Haven't looked at it in thirty years;I'm sure its dreck. But I still vividly remember the story and the characters. That's gotta count for something.

    3. Read in the 70's so really don't remember much but know I liked it because it is still on my shelf. It was one of those big books-over 500 pages and covers 3 generations of a southern family. If there weren't so many books to read and I had the time, I probably would reread this one.

    4. At first I must admit I read this only at my mothers urging and to meet my namesake, but as I went on I found this book really pretty good.
