Not the five stars story that I am use to from Mr. Legg, but I certainly enjoyed the trapping segments, which proved to be entertaining enough!

Four stars, at least as Blackwood and his crew proved to be the group to follow on their trapping journeys, as they pulled no punches in their attempts to fight the onslaught of Indians during their attempts to successfully trap the beaver. I found the continued use of God's name in vain was a little too much, and to me it became offensive!
There were some outstanding storylines throughout the story book, which proved to be heartwarming at times! As always, in trapping books, the Author's character selections were effectively chosen for their assigned roles.
I do recommend this fascinating series of events to you lovers of trapping stories relative to how some of those guys survived throughout the hardships involved with the trade. Here is enough romantic interludes to maintain your attention from beginning to end. Try it! I am sure most of you western lovers will find Blackwood and crew to be easy to follow!
