Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites

Part of these books belong to both Buh and I. I am a much safer person who takes better care of things that is why they are at my house.

I have the original #1 of the series, it is about to fall apart and once my kids are interested in the books I'll have to buy a new one but I like that I have the original.

I'm very sure Buh read the books before I did and I happened to pick it up later. They certainly fall into the historical fiction category and make some parts of ancient history a little more interesting. While I don't know if the personalities he's given some of his characters are accurate they do come off more personable and it's easier to read about them in other books.

I also discovered that there is a #10 I just never read it so I'm going to have to look for it the next time I go to the bank/Deseret Book. Or maybe Wal-Mart will sell it for less.

Heimerdinger also wrote several other books like Daniel and Nephi, Ben Franklin and the Chamber of Time & Eddie Fantastic. All good reads.

I remember that Buh bought Daniel and Nephi while he was on his mission and sent it home for us to read. I liked it. I haven't read all the 'tennis shoe' books, another thing on my list for when I come to visit you!
