Ride the wind
Americas history written as a pulsating novel.
Probably but the story line flowed so well it stays in the mind and I think I would prefer to listen to another book and rely on the very vivid memories of Ride the Wind.
To a certain extent it reminded me of Louis L'Amour's early work but this had a very female bias to it. The book works well enough for the adventure seeking reader (more likely to be men) but adds that romance and passion in a very rugged setting. A very well written novel with a Mills & Boon undertone.
Sort of but I thought she struggled with the male characters and sometimes created unfulfilled build ups yet under played the really exciting action (when the two warriors were captured by the cannibal tribe) but still very listenable.
It was a page turner but not all at once it is 29 hours long!
A prequel would be interesting. A time with no white men, a time when the Indians had the place almost to themselves..........a take on the Jean Auel's Earth's Children novels.They are very definitely a female bias but still have a rip roaring adventure story to tell.
