Noah Gates is also similar to Hamilton Robb in that they are both pure Westerns. The main characters are honorable men who have had to defend themselves in tough situations. Both men chose an honest path rather than become tainted by hard times and turning sour when things would go wrong. Both chose to defend what was right in spite of the lure of the temptation to take advantage of the situation. In other words, these men served as good role models. They possessed integrity. So this is a good, clean read in spite of the roughness and desperation of certain circumstances. Going after cattle rustlers and thieves was a touchy situation where right and wrong created fuzzy lines from time to time. For example, Noah faced a moment when his life was threatened. He was forced to defend himself; there was no one around who could do it for him. Hesitating could have proven fatal.
The story's action intensifies mid way through the book. It's a well-written historically accurate fiction that kept me on the edge of my seat. After a mildly adventurous foray into the gold fields of Colorado, Noah returned and bought a farm. Then he married Dora, whom we met earlier in the book. The farm is nestled in the foothills of the Rockies, in Canyon View. The colorful characters in this town include Hamilton Robb. Shortly after the wedding, Noah aligned himself with some of the local ranchers who had lost livestock, in the search for the thieves. I enjoyed the interplay between the ranchers. Some of the best humor was in that segment. Overall, the book is enjoyable. If you are interested in stories of the Old West, you should pick up this book.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary review copy of this book from CKN Christian Publishing on behalf of the author. I was not required to write a review, positive or otherwise. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
The characters are well developed. The humor of both Noah and Dora was refreshing. I found Noah Gates to be different from other westerns I have read. The story flowed well, was exciting and filled with suspense.
Noah Gates is a heartwarming story filled with a romance that blossoms out of a friendship between two people who seem less apt to be compatible. The story had an uplifting ending and the author's writing style and western period jargon transported me perfectly into the past.
I was provided with a copy from CKN Publishing and voluntarily chose to review it.
A very enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more from the author.
Noah's seemingly quick find of a suitable wife was not unusual across the land throughout the harsh times of our nation's history. What follows is a true story: One morning shortly after the turn of the last century GN railroad's steam powered passenger train, The Empire Builder, pulled to a stop to take on water at Berne, Washington before continuing west toward Everett and Seattle. At the time Berne was a tiny railroad community consisting of a 24' square train depot with an agent/telegrapher and a small track repair crew. Huge Steve George was the section foreman headquartered at this lonely station and, over time, he had built a decent little rough lumber home for himself and for his yet unknown future wife. As the engine's boiler was being topped off Steve stepped onto the train to see if there were any young ladies travelling alone. One such occupant boldly held Steve's inquiring gaze as he asked in a heavy Greek accent where she was heading, and was she married. "Seattle" and "No" were the woman's responses so Steve proceeded to tell her about his steady job and about the new home which could be seen off among the trees just out the train's window and over to the north. "Do you want to get married and live here?", Steve asked. The lady asked if he were a drinker, did he have a bad temper and would he ever hit her. Satisfied with his answers she stood, gathered her few personal belongings, and walked off the train with the man she would live with until his death decades later. I was told this story by their eldest son, Paul, for whom I was privileged to work back in the early '60s. Certainly there were countless other similar instances of necessity over romance during a lean often difficult period in our country's past.
Disclosure: I received a free advance copy of this work in exchange for my honest review.
