To Keep A Promise (Buckskin Chronicles, Band 1) Reviews
Einem der drei "Helden" wird bei einem Angriff eine Axt derart in die Schulter geschlagen, dass sie Muskeln durchtrennt hat und im Knochen festsitzt, aber aufgrund der wundersamen Heilkräfte der stereotypen indianischen zweiten "Heldin" ist diese Wunde nach ein paar Tagen schon so gut verheilt, dass der Geheilte schon wieder einen Faustkampf bewältigen und natürlich siegen kann?Die Charaktere sind viel zu stereotyp und die Handlung damit generell vorhersehbar. Das Ganze erinnert an eine Westernversion der "Fünf Freunde" und ist Erwachsenen gar nicht, Jugendlichen durch die Realitätsferne nur bedingt zu empfehlen.Eines der ganz wenigen Bücher, die ich nicht zu Ende lesen konnte, und ich bin ein wahrlich geduldiger und toleranter Leser!
A beautiful page-turning and action filled story of the old west with its minute-to-minute danger and a glimpse into the sophisticated old south where slaves kept the plantations running smoothly. The promise is to free a family and it is expensive and not easily done legally with letters of manumission and a certainty that no one will attempt to enslave them again. A fast-paced story of sacrifice, duty to honor, and Yankee ingenuity and well worth the time.
After reading the reviews I was expecting something, well, better. Maybe you need to be more religious than I am. The story line was fine but the book was simply a bit dull. I thought it was interesting that whenever the protagonist (Jerimiah) had to fight someone, they were always giants. Massive Indian warriors, bad guys were so big their feet dragged on the ground when they rode horse back, and the bear was bigger than a Kodiak bear. Give me a break! Generally the story plodded along to an anti-climatic ending. I will avoid further novels from this author.
I just finished reading this book the same day I got it, along with To The Tall Timbers and To The Absaroka. All three books are spectacular!! I have spoken with Mr. Rundell and I think he should turn this series into film or a miniseries on cable. After the success of Leonardo Dicaprio's Fur Trade epic: The Revenant, I this series and a host of other Fur Trade novels should be made into film. I swear I love a book that I couldn't put down and this book is that kind of book.
Rundell does a good job spinning a fictional yarn and has a decent amount of research , experience , and knowledge of the areas involved to interestingly "mash" a lot of history into great story lines. I am currently reading his 6th installment of Buckskin Chronicles and his process has a dependable consistency without being drab. I have an advantage of living in the Colorado mountains and being very familiar with the Rockies , North to South . I think that anyone of any age will enjoy these stories and find inspiration in the way things could have been ( could be ) .
I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I was impressed with the authors explanation of each and every persons involvement and experience. Mr. Rundell's coverage of the era was perfectly in line with his intended result. I was unable to lay the book aside until the final paragraph was completed. Recommend this novel to lovers of the true wild western episodes. You will be deeply satisfied, I am definitely sure.
