In The Protectors, book II of the Legend of the Golden Feather, lovable cowboys Jake and Wiley are discovered by two young men, Jim and Dave; the date June 1993.Jim and Dave have been together for around five years, and having come into an inheritance are about to set up a new life for themselves in their self-built cabin on the rock above where Jake and Wiley built their cabin in 1886. When they discover Jake and Wiley lying in the rubble of the original cabin they immediately come to their aid; and so begins a series of new adventures which now involves all four men.It is not long before Jake and Wiley, along with their new companions, are being eagerly pursued. The pursuers include a wealthy woman who lusts after them, a greedy and viscous dealer after their 1886 gold dollar coins, and a wasted loser seeking revenge, not to mention the law enforcement agencies. How can Jim and Dave, the Protectors, help them through this, and will Jake and Wiley be able to return to 1886?Things are of course complicated as Jake and Wiley accustom themselves to the strange world of 1996. Their reactions are delightful and enlightening; while they are amazed, at times terrified and even horrified at what they see, their individual responses are particularly interesting. Jake in his naïve innocence, his habit of saying exactly what he thinks, puts into words what many of us are perhaps too afraid to admit about our modern age. The educated Wiley, while equally appalled at the state of the world, has a more enquiring approach, and would love to know how everything works.Every bit as funny as Bristlecone Peak, Jake¿s reactions to 1993 especially providing much hilarity, I found The Protectors a most enjoyable read. We see the developing relationship between the two partners and blood brothers strengthen further, and we begin to learn something of the power of the Golden Feather. In addition to the humour, Jake and Wiley¿s response to the modern world provides some serious food for thought. While we enjoy all the benefits and comforts of the technological and scientific advancement, we are provoked to question whether our lives really are any better for it.
