GUEST,John Garst JOHN HENRY solved???? (38) RE: JOHN HENRY solved???? 23 Aug 06

Scott Nelson, "Steel Drivin' Man," September or October 2006, Oxford University Press.

I have an "Uncorrected Advance Reading Copy" of this book, which will surely be available soon from Amazon.

Nelson does not address the evidence for Alabama at all. He doesn't even acknowledge my work. Insofar as far as the evidence goes in support of his John Henry candidate, he adds nothing in this book that wasn't in his 2005 paper. Yet he has the gall to claim that his is the "true" story of John Henry.

I persist in considering the Virginia case to be much weaker than the Alabama one.
