Read it twice. A early psychological study with a happy ending.
A well crafted western that would make a great movie.
This book is the fictional account of the 1898 Wilmington, NC massacre or race riot where local Black officials who were legally elected, were killed or run out of town by white surpremist. This is an extremely well written book by an outstanding author. I reread several passages because the phrasing were spot-on.
This is the second book that I have read by the author. This is an entertaining plot where the death of a prospector inspires his daughter to travel to the northwest and search for his lost gold claim. She only has a map, two photographs,and a small grubstake when she arrives in a territory of cattlemen, prospectors, the antagonist, and the hero. An easy and entertaining read.
I would have given a higher rating (western genre) except for the ending.
