A Terrific Western
Trouble on the Smoky Hill Trail is the first of the Pearl Brothers series of westerns, and it’s a honey.
The trouble begins in the idyllic town of Elder Grove, Kansas, where a group of renegade Indians abduct two teenage girls. The renegades are soon tracked by a delegation from the town, led by Noah and Jacob Pearl, two incredibly capable men. One black, the other white, the Pearls were raised together and are as close as brothers.
This book is filled with fast-paced thrills, and author Andrew Weston makes the Pearl brothers come to life. He is equally adroit in his characterization of Astrid, one of the kidnapped girls, and Raging Bear, her nemesis. This is great stuff and comes highly recommended!
