Great Story, heart rending
Warning - gang rape, ruthless murder, thieves. Gang rape first off - was it a literary device to grab reader's attention? Horrible. Life long friendships, family loyalty, fantastic outdoor living. Great novel showing how unnecessary most of modern life possessions are and the need for practical skills.
Hated, hated, hated Martin and Jacob and their wonderful pregnant wives getting murdered in the last 30 minutes. Did the author need to just hurry up and finish the story and get it to the publisher?
I loved Singing Bird. Realistic that she died from small pox brought by white men.
Great story about 1800's mountain living - harsh and free - and the thinking/culture of Indians.
Appreciated the portrayal of the Indian squaws as hard working, skillful, knowledgeable, many kind and loving.
Narrator very good except for the onomatopoeia interpretations -- would have preferred more realistic gunshot and other noises, etc. There is a way to do it with the mouth, throat, larynx, lips, etc.
I recommend this book with reservations. Will purchase at least the next sequel.
