"The Buckskinners" gets off to a good start in 1793 when two married teenagers leave their farm in Virginia for better land and freedom in Kentucky. They are an ill-matched pair--Lem, a dedicated farmer--and Roberta, dedicated to pleasure and wealth. The marriage falls apart after producing a son, Morgan. Lem and Morgan, now 16, go west via Nashville, St. Louis, and, as this volume ends, are headed for the Rocky Mountains to trap beaver. The author of this very readable book leans toward lush prose and minutely detailed action, often violent and bloody. He supplies the reader with many fascinating details of every aspect of frontier life. Recommended for fans of Westerns.- Sister Avila, Acad. of Holy Angels, Minneapolis
