    Lots of western action

    After four years of reading the law in Boston, Yale graduate Thomas Benton McCabe decides he needs a change. He accepts a position with the Bureau of Indian Affairs and almost immediately is sent west to write a report on a remote Cheyenne tribe. At home, the assignment seemed easy, but in the middle of Missouri exclusively surrounded by Indians for miles, the job appears impossible. <P>Thomas saves the life of a Cheyenne chief, Spotted Fox. Though he distrusts the whites who always come in peace, a grateful Spotted Fox allows ¿Mack Cabe¿ to join his tribe. Soon Mack falls in love with Night Bird Woman. In accordance with tribal law, Mack will have to first fight her intended Three Hatchets. If he survives that test, he must surmount the Test of Fire for the honor of marrying Night Bird Woman. Unbeknownst to Mack his tribulations are just beginning. <P>CHEYENNE RAIDERS is a reprint of a novel that fantasy fan favorite Robert Jordan wrote in the early 1980¿s as Jackson O¿Reilly. The story line is fast-paced, filled with non-stop action, and picturesquely makes the late 1830¿s seem alive. The motives of the characters are never fully developed as the adventures that happen to Mack take center stage. Fans of western novels with plenty of conflict, activity, and energy will enjoy CHEYENNE RAIDERS. Still Mr. Jordan¿s ¿Wheel of Time¿ fans might only want to read this as a curiosity piece that showcase the author¿s earlier work. <P>Harriet Klausner

    This book was written long befor the WOT

    Many people seem to believe Jordan is taking a break from the WOT just to write these books that have nothing to do with the series. The truth of the matter, however, is that Jordan wrote several books before embarking on the excessive WOT series. These include the Fallon trilogy, a handful of Conan novels and this western. I haven't had a chance to read this one yet, though I hunted for it many a year in used bookstores. I'm glad it's being published again. Hopefully it'll be worth reading. I enjoyed his Conan novels and the first five or so WOT novels were great, but lately his work has been terrible. Redundant, long-winded and static. What a shame.
