Reviews of Trac Brothers

Ray Walsh of the Lansing State Journal did a nice review on March 18, 2018, calling it a “Deft trail tale” and calling the author, “an experienced, clever storyteller.”

Here is the review on the LSJ Website


“Full of whimsy and charm – a grown-up Goonies steeped in nostalgia and brotherhood, set against a beautiful Michigan backdrop, Pearson’s novel will set an enthralling spell that you never want to snap out of. Action, humor, and memorable characters that you wished existed in real life – well, except for the bad guys. But even they have their redeemable moments.” -R.J. Fox, Author Love & Vodka: My Surreal Adventures in Ukraine, Tales from the Dork Side, and Awaiting Identification

“A charming, wild, and witty adventure through Michigan.” – Bryce David Salazar – author of She Sees Metaphors and Tales of Timeless Springs

“What do you do when you inherit an antique handcar? Start pumping it down the tracks, of course. At least that is what Jam and Jax Trachsel do! Chills, spills and fun ensue, all conveyed in Randy D Pearson’s unique style. Pearson’s voice always delights!” – Judith Wade, author of the Mermaid Island Series

Randy Pearson’s best book yet! Great dialog with a wonderful modern American adventure story suitable for both adults and kids. Two Michigan boys, upon receiving an unusual inheritance find adventure (and more) on the rails of the northern lower peninsula. I’m tying up my bindlestiff and heading out! Aw, who am I kidding, I’ll just have a Crown Royal and imagine instead. – Amazon Reviewer

I loved this book! It was hard to put down, and kept me up way past my bedtime. But it was worth it! Thanks for a great story! I really loved the Michigan connection, too. I can hardly wait for your next book. You’re awesome!Amazon Reviewer
