PRAISE FORThe Adventures of Buckfart, Seabiscuit, Pedro and the Gang: 1942 – The War Years:

“In the tradition of ‘Huckleberry Finn,’ the boys from Tory Forks will entertain readers of all ages—-those who want to lose themselves in nostalgia for days gone by, and those who can relate to kids on the verge of adulthood, experiencing the thrills of life as they existed during that era.”

-Times-Standard/Humboldt Beacon

“I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was captivating and reminded me of a mix of my favorite authors: Jack London and Mark Twain. I was spellbound from chapter to chapter and page to page. Buckfart was hard to put the book down once I started to read it. I found myself looking forward to enjoying one adventure to another. I would recommend this book to my friends and family. I plan on buying a copy for all my 30+ grand-children and great grand-children for Christmas.
-Daniel Eddy (Amazon Kindle edition review)

“This book is a great way to expose today’s young adults to what life was like before video games and 200 cable channels. It will also remind many adults of the things we used to do when we were kids. Honeycutt is a wonderful storyteller! This book will be enjoyed by anyone, young or old, who wants to lose themselves in the thrills and innocence of discovering the world with fresh eyes and a young heart! “

-A. Sacks (Ashland, Oregon)

“A fun read.
We are a home schooling family and it is books like this one that fill our library.
We recommend this work to the young and young at heart.
Enjoy!

-Scott Hammond, Author
