This is a well written book with some ideas about railroad construction and the mad character of man. The characters are well developed and fit the story line. Read it and enjoy. It also shows that Indians are not the “noble savage” that some want you to believe. There development was centuries behind, but sometimes the truth has to be added to get the true and correct point across in the book.
I've read this before in paperback but just read it again on my Kindle. It was every bit as good as before. A rip-snorting mystery tucked inside a hell-for-leather western railroad yarn. Tons of colorful characters to keep you flipping the pages. Highly recommended. James is a master of his craft.
If you like a good western detective novel, upright and courageous men and women, against the backdrop of building the Railroad across Kansas post civil war, this is a wonderful read. If you don’t it’s still a great Western. Moving to the next installment with delight.
