the conuest of the Old West as a stagecoach My Indian Kitchen driver soon t expect a politically correct 21st century viewpoint conuest of the Old West as a stagecoach Lots of Mommies driver soon t expect a politically correct 21st century viewpoint Native Americans If you can get past that it s not a bad example of the western genre of novel Rarely o I pick up a western Like almost never but I was intrigued about the stage coach theme and rightfully so The etail about the skill needed for Fantasy Man driving stage coaches fulfilled my expectations Wellone I could see myself riding on top of the coach with Starr Fowler with the wind blowing through my hair and the The Flame Of Adventure dust clouding the road ahead The incidents added to the reality of the experienceOf course there is romance too and Indians but in my limited reading of this type of book that is to be expected in a western Slade the hard to work with character who turnsifficult becomes a bully and finally a killer is another character I would expect to find Starr comes from a bit of sheltered background when he begins riving a stage However he learns from his experience And while I rarely read westerns I have to admit I uite liked this on. Ing the US mail Until an Indian uprising made him aware of a eeper bond of the anguish of separation and of a shattering secret knowledge he would carry with him the rest of his lif.
characters Six Horse HitchLoved it as a kidin my cowboyindian phase Will reread it This was a great look at the changing times from stagecoach to railroad Western setting Joe Fowler 19 becomes a stagecoach reignsman in 1859 and rives the Overland Stage west for 10 years before the railroad arrives Way too much background read like a history book It would have been a better story if all the explanations were left out It had to happen eventually Of all the Janice Holt Giles books I liked this least The Indians were cruder
The Violence Crueler The Menviolence crueler the men Plus the story line idn t take off until than half way through the 400 page book If you enjoy reading about stagecoaches you Frog and the Treasure d love it but yawn I found it a bit much Once the story got started it was as good as usual Plus it tied up Fowler family history The main character of Six Hitch Horse is Starr Fowler He was the great grandson of Hannah Fowler grandson of Matthew Fowler and son of Joe Fowler Oh it hurts me to give a JHG book only 3 stars but I have to in this case She chose to spend a LOT of time in the book on historical exposition something Ion t remember her leaning on in. At nineteen Starr Fowler had no greater love than The Butterfly Club driving for the Great Overland Stage Therum of the six horses' hooves on hard road was his lifeblood and his religion all rolled .
Her other books which made it seem that much heavy handed in this one The amount of Lilith Enraptured (Divinity Warriors detailed research sheid is to be admired but I think if she would have tackled sharing it in a natural flowing way that the book would have been better for it In between the long winded history explanations the story itself was uite good so I idn t hate reading it not by a long shot I would say if you have a real interest in the stage coach lines of the west you will efinitely enjoy it I if you have a real interest in the stage coach lines of the west you will efinitely enjoy
It I Do Not HaveI o not have eep of an interest so I had to struggle through uite a lot
Of Pages To Get Topages to get to ones that I id enjoy If you are just Feminization and Chastity Training for the Sissy Husband (The League of Dominant Women discovering JHG I have to say this is NOT the book to start with Go back to her books set in Kentucky those are 5 star books allay every The Club of Angels day Probably the best book in the series lots of historical research Loved this book as a kid Didn t realize it was part of a series until I was an adult I ve read some of the other books in the series but theyidn t leave the lasting impression on me that this one Blue Skies and Gunfire did This is written in first person narrative from the point of view of a young Caucasian man from.
