I will admit, as a 16 year old I am not much of a reader. Even if I were to read a book, a western would not be my first choice...but I like a challenge. R.W. Stone has astounded me with this adventurous, breathtaking novel. As I mentioned, I am new to the western world, but this book will definitely keep me coming back for more. The great detail and understandable storyline make this book a great choice for any type of reader! There is some type of action on every page! I will admit it took me a while to read this book. I work for Dr. Stone, so I therefore heard about the book every day. However, when clients began flooding in and complimenting him with his book, I decided it was time to read it. After owning the book for months, I read it. It is amazing. The young boy creating that relationship with the white man who saved him. I do have to admit that is my favorite part.
This book is actually very captivating. It is a very unique western, but at the same time contains every detail that a good western should. Everything from the guns to the people. Even the cover fits perfectly with the type of western gun used in the book. The book is very descriptive, but not to the point of insanity. It has story lines fit for any avid, or even rare reader. Trust me when I tell you this is a book you will absolutely LOVE to read. Give it a chance and I promise you won't be disappointed. I know I wasn't!
