An adventure story from the United states in the late 19th century. Full of interesting characters, action, adventure, drama and romance. Light reading with which to pass a pleasant hour or two. I almost expected Ronald Reagan's name to appear on a list of characters at the end.
A lovely story, beautifully written in the traditional, evocative style of the "old" westerns. the characters are completely believable, and so the book just carries you along....aching to finish it, yet not wanting it to come to an end.
This was a page-turner, a western novel with a great love story entwined. When I came to the end I was surprised to read that it's a first novel by an American wildlife biologist. I hope Jim Satterfield writes more.
