Argueably the best book of the 25 (soon 27) book series.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Nomads of Gor (Paperback)
Jumping right into action, the reader may be a little confused for the first page or two, but this is short-lived, as John Norman supplies abundant descriptions and footnotes to edify the reader. The book follows a great story plot of the Wagon People of the great prairies of southern Gor.
Tarl Cabot, main character in most of the series, visits the Wagon People, who bear some historical paralells to the Mongol tribes under Ghengis Khan in the early 1200's, questing for an item for the mysterious Priest-Kings. In the course of this search he helps the Thuchuk tribes in a war forced upon them by their neighbors.
Of all the books of the Gor series, this is the one that probably has the greatest fan following. I have personal knowledge that at least two groups, with around 300+ members between them, have existed since the 1970's as fans of this book only, ignoring to some degree the rest of the series.
