1) Historians. The author obviously researched the historical setting and the geographical landscape to such a degree that one could use it as a guide to navigate a period of time when the West was being won in Idaho – it could be used as a resource for a history or geography professor. The map and numerous illustrations provided – all done by the author – help complete the picture and are a testament to Dorris’ artistic skills.
2) Hunters. The author has obviously spent a good deal of time in the out-of-doors. His description of the mountains, forests, undercover, and rivers of Idaho are so vivid that the reader can almost feel the tree branches brush against the shoulder while visualizing the treacherous rocky paths traversed by horse and pack mule. You can easily imagine that you are riding alongside the characters in the book as they hunt and fish for game in order to survive the heat of summer and the cold of winter in their hunt for gold.
3) Gemologists. The detailed descriptions of how to search for, assay, and refine minerals is an education in itself. What could have been a boring examination of panning, placer mining, and prospecting, was, instead, transformed into an educational experience that was skillfully woven into the heart of the story line – anyone interested in prospecting plus the adults and youth in our Scouting programs would especially enjoy this novel.
4) Sociologists. Chinese -- Indians – Americans. The book is also a study of the interaction, distrust, and cooperation between different cultures.Read more ›
