Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two well-written novels deviate from the commonplace Western in several aspects. Their backdrop is the Florida wilderness, and Gramling educates the reader about that environment without letting the lesson intrude on the plots. The male protagonists are larger-than-life yet believable, the women are strong-willed and capable, and the ne'er-do-wells are easy to hate. In Trail to St. Augustine , John MacKenzie returns to that 18th-century British colonial city after a year trapping and soon runs afoul of the local vigilantes because he intercedes on behalf of a young woman indentured to their leader. The couple join forces with an old sailor and a black slave-hunter, and the foursome is pursued across the Florida peninsula to buried treasure on the Gulf coast. The protagonist of Riders of the Suwanee , Florida native Tate Barkley, comes home in 1875 after making a name for himself as a hired gun in Texas and Arizona. Old feuds fuel violence when Barkley takes up a young widow's cause. Riders of the Suwanee succumbs, to a certain degree, to the hyperbole found in most Westerns, but the flaw does not spoil a good story. Both novels are recommended for public libraries.-- Robert Jordan, Univ. of Iowa, Iowa City
