This is a perfect example of a novel that has to be published by a tiny-press or self-published because of marketing fashions and nothing to do with the novel or its material. It is as well written and well constructed as any novel coming from a giant Manhattan Publisher aiming at selling film rights. The 4-book series should be done as a TV Series. There are many stories behind and between the narrated scenes.
This is not a Supernatural fantasy - it is a story of right and wrong, of building civilization from scratch, of founding a nation, of making judgement calls while listening to the voice of conscience. These people are inventing Law as they go along - using ancient and modern precedent and common sense as a guide. This is exactly what will happen when we colonize other planets so distant that there is virtually no communication. This is a story of good human beings trying to live well and survive impossible odds.
The historical detail work is excellent, the characterization multi-dimensional.
This novel, and its prequels, have my highest recommendation.
Mrs. Buchanan is a fine historian as well as novelist, and draws heavily on primary sources to reconstruct the turbulent mining camp as it wrestled with the antagonism of Northerners and Southerners, men of good will and evil design, innocents and schemers, all of them trying somehow to survive in a makeshift town of shanties and cabins, while panning precious gold from icy waters. She captures not only the roughness of the camp, but the romance, the hunger, the magic of being in an exciting place where everything seemed possible, even as the war in the East ground to its painful conclusion.
Mrs. Buchanan writes with power, grace, and courage as she probes the people who arrived in the gold camp looking for a way to better themselves and their families. These four titles, together, create a vivid and detailed and authoritative history of the period, one that lives on in the reader. This is a collection that will inform all who have wondered about Montana's early history. I wouldn't be surprised if it is turned into a fine feature film or television series. Buy them. Read them. Keep them on your coffee table and talk about them.
