Strongheart: Don Bendell has done it again,

This review is from: Strongheart: A Story of the Old West (Mass Market Paperback)After taking a break from writing Westerns, I was extremely pleased to see Don had resumed writing them. Even though they are works of fiction, he strives for historical accuracy and facts. The people in his books come from the head and heart but the places and events are real. This allows his characters to come to life and almost jump of the page. Strongheart: A Story of the Old West is the latest, and greatest, of his books that do just that.
Mr. Bendell's attention to detail really allows you to picture the characters, their experiences and the unique and ALWAYS amazing Colorado landscape. While his latest hero, Joshua Strongheart, a half-white, half-Lakota warrior may seem larger than life, his emotions, feelings and personal issues are very real. Strongheart lives by a code that, sadly, seems lost in this day and age. He is a man of his word and true to his convictions. He is the type of person many of us wish we could be and that is why it's so easy to get lost in a book like this.
If you love Westerns, as I do, and you enjoy reading vivid descriptions, closing your eyes and picturing yourself in that very setting then this is DEFINITELY the book for you.
