I was offered the Kindle app from Amazon for my desktop and immediately asked for "Zone Policeman 88", published in 1913, an eBook offered FREE. I'm now 87 and read it a very long time ago as a youngster, so I didn't remember anything about it.. It's fascinating and also funny!

A humorous glimpse of an oft forgotten event in our nation's history told from the perspective of someone who lived it!

Yes, the language and ethnic references are not for the easily offended. But , they truly evoke the time & place in an indelible manner.

It is a very quick and most enjoyable trip to the earliest days of the "Zone"!!!

Read this while on cruise going thru canel. Must have been hard times building it without power. The new one is going to use tug boats replacing trains we were pulled by.
