    A must read Western!

    War Cry
    By: Charles G West

    I read this book due to the promptings of my husband. We both love Louis L'Amour westerns. War Cry by Charles G West is an awesome western written in Louis L'Amour fashion. West tells a fictional story with a realistic, factual base. The details on the Indians, the land, and the places are true. He then weaves a story that will catch you from the first page. You won't want to put the book down until you have finished.

    In War Cry, Will Cason is a scout for the army, stationed at Camp Supply. He is delivering dispatches to Fort Dodge when he comes across a damsel in distress. Indians have killed her husband and left her and her daughter to fend for themselves. Will finds her with her wagon stuck trying to keep the Indians away. Sarah Lawton and her daughter Emma are thankful Will has run off the Indians, but Sarah doesn't know what to do next. Will takes her to Fort Dodge to catch a train back East. Emma-6 yrs old-carves a place in Will's heart; Will calls her Whiskers and promises to give her a horse when she is old enough. Sarah decides not to move back East, but then takes up with Lieutenant Braxton. Will knows Braxton isn't right for Sarah, but he figures he's not good enough for her either. The action in the book is top-notch. There are Indian fights, shootings, people killed, you have to keep turning the page to see what is going to happen next. The descriptions are vivid; you can see exactly what is going on in the battle or the trail ride. Bloody Hand, one of the Cheyenne Indians, has a grudge against Will. He thinks he has strong medicine and his desire to kill Will with his hands ends up being his downfall. You will enjoy reading about the Indian fights, the shootings, the tracking, and following Will as he fights the Indians, Braxton, and himself regarding Sarah. As you read Will's story, you will recognize the research that West puts into the book. That is why his books are classified as historical westerns. Anyone that loves a good Western will love this book. There is a romance storyline, but it does not detract from the "westerness" of the book. There isn't even a description of a kiss! The dialogue is great, you feel a part of the story due to the excellent character development, and the sequence of events keeps the book moving. Once you read this book, you will want to read others!
