Hannah and Hex continue the expedition for fossils, and begin to form a rather playful relationship. He ends up saving her on more than one occasion, for which she is forever grateful. Along the way, Hannah and Hex gather a number of various characters, most of whom join the search for bones. Together, the group forms intertwining relationships, and keep each other company. They barely escaping frightful bouts with Indians, Mother Nature, including a fierce bear, and sometimes, each other.
I do have one qualm with the book. While I understand the story is taking place in the 1900s, when injustice was prevalent, there are a number of sexist, racist, and offensive jokes and comments made by the characters. I think there is a more tasteful way the author could have shown the diversity of characters.
Overall, The Lady Who Loved Bones was an alluring read, with a melting pot of curious characters, and filled with history and unexpected predicaments. The story is not for a younger audience, as it has some risqué parts. I found it very interesting to read the “About the Author” section at the end of the story and to learn that the author incorporated a lot of his personal interests into his characters.
"The Lady Who Loved Bones," by Jack Hazen takes place in the late 1800s. Hannah, an archaeologist in training, departs from the east coast with several supporters to find dinosaur bones in the mid west. Her party was attacked by Indians and all were murdered except for her. The wagons were set on fire. She was bound, gagged and tied naked to a tree when a passerby, Hex, finds her and saves her life. After much persuasion, Hex agrees to financially support her expedition. With many more supporters with her, they set out on a successful journey to remember.
This book is very descriptive about how life was in the late 1800s. It was very informative, even though it was fiction. It captured my attention and had my imagination running wild. It does have a lot of parts in it that made me laugh hysterically. If you are looking for a great western book with a twist, this is the book to read. It will make you laugh, cry and be scared for the characters all at the same time. Highly recommended!
