5.0 out of 5 stars Another amazing book from this author, 8 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Across the High Lonesome (Paperback)
I was slightly perturbed by the cover never having really read a book about 'cowboys' before. I'm normally a thriller girl and so the author's other book (check it out) is my favourite book of all time.

However I simply loved this too.

It's the story of Dwight a packer whose love for the mountains and a nomadic lifestyle means that he's a love 'em and leave 'em sort where the ladies are concerned and one of the boys with his mates. He meets Molly Mendoza who has come to the mountains as a way to forget a broken romance.

Their subsequent romance is set against the backdrop of the california wilderness and a series of escapades and adventures involving a whole cast of great characters - Jake and Ike bring humour to the story, Bob Roberts and his crew a real sense of menace and Pete and Nancy are the resident eccentrics.

I have to say that I couldn't put this down. The story has authenticity and the writers experience and love of this way of life shine through the pages.

If you want something different, if you want to know about a way of life that you may never have heard about and if you just want to get lost in a really great book, then this book is for you.

Try it - I bet you'll love it!

Tricked into buying this book after seeing so many recommendations for it in five star reviews of other books. Don't fall for this scam. Its about as exciting as a telephone directory written in the style of "what we did on our holidays".
