poor work by Roydon Salick

by lesterbird (WorldCat user published 2010-03-01) Poor Permalink

The writer is obviously disillusioned.  He does not portray an accurate description of sam's work.  He appears to have done little research on this noble man.  I would advise it is not good for reading.  Poor, shoddy, boyish, immature work.  thanks
