Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Barnaby Skye and Victoria, the Indian woman with whom he shares his life, have decided to hole up for a time at Bent's Fort near the Mexican border. Skye earns his living supplying buffalo meat to the settlement's residents. But peace and quiet don't keep Skye company for long. At the urging of Victoria, he takes up the cause of Stands Alone, a Cheyenne woman whose two children were stolen by the slave-trading Utes. On the way to Ute territory, Skye and the two women form an uneasy alliance with Texas adventurer Colonel Childress, who is protected from the Utes by his small spider monkey, which the Indians believe is strong medicine best left alone. When Skye is taken prisoner, the question is whether Childress will find it in his enigmatic heart to rescue him so their mission can be completed. Wheeler's Skye is a much more well rounded character than one usually finds in western literature. He is intelligent, erudite, compassionate, and self-aware. The thirteenth entry in the series is one of the most satisfying. Wes Lukowsky

Richard Wheeler again gives us a delightful western in the Barnaby Skye Novels! I enjoyed this book just as much as the others in this series. Mr Wheeler simply cannot crank these stories out fast enough for me!

Skye and his wife, Victoria, take on a quest to find two kidnapped children who were sold into slavery in what is now the state of New Mexico. This story is full of great description and characterization, including capturing Standing Alone's need to find her children, the many faces of a fat man called Childress, and the pits of despair the human soul sinks to when it is enslaved. The Deliverance was a well written read and quite enjoyable.
