"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

They would have adjusted in time, they have to, but the situation is made worse by greedy men who aim to take all the available land themselves then sell it to the settlers for inflated prices. The man at the head of the scheme is an unpleasant and bloodthirsty villain who perpetrates extortion and murder and that he then blames on Billy. After all, the boy has Indian Blood, he must be tainted. However, the author shows Billy to be made of more noble stuff than the white men that put him down. The message is that if blood has anything to do with making you a good man, then Indian blood is pure.
I really enjoyed this book. Billy is a beautiful and noble character that I fell in love with immediately. He is well drawn, as are all the characters, even the evil fellow comes across as an all too believable person. I was sad when the good guys died and I rejoiced when Billy and his friends came out on top.
The plot was surprisingly unpredictable and moved along at a good pace, with something else always happening to keep me interested. The ending was completely unexpected but also very realistic.
The writing has an old world feel very appropriate for the era, and the book is well edited and finished. Though full of struggle and with some very sad moments, it’s essentially a heart-warming story that I highly recommend.
I received this book free of charge from the author in return for an honest review.
There’s plenty of adventure and romance in this book, and instead of resorting to the often stereotypical characterisation of the traditional Western, the author invests her characters with a depth which demonstrates her own insights into human behaviour and psychology. ‘Indian Blood’ would also make an excellent movie, and I would recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a thoroughly entertaining read -- and not just Western fans.
