Book Review: Matamoros

Subtitled “Civil War Adventure, Romance and Espionage in an Old West Border Town...,” Kahn’s book depicts a town like no other, the South’s lone cotton-shipping harbor that was filled not only with Rebel and Yankee spies but with French Foreign Legionaires. The author is also a talented singer-songwriter who has put out a full-length well-produced album of songs based on his book.
