Book Review-Thunder on the Plains: A Pecos Quinn Western-John Rose Putnam

Friday, March 19, 2021

This is the third in this series--it can definitely be read as a stand alone but it does follow Pecos so you just might want to read from the beginning. I'm not really into westerns but this one captured and held my attention!

Pecos and his son went with a trio of other men to get the doctor who had been helping the Cherokees. This by itself was dangerous as at this time in our countries history the government was trying to get the Indians onto reservations. There were a lot of men out there trying to kill off the buffalo for their skins--The Indians were trying to stop them.

Andy, Pecos son was just a boy when they started on their journey--by the end of the book he was a man!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

In the 3rd Pecos Quinn Western, I tip my hat to Zane Grey, with deep respect. He showed us that even amid the savagery of the buffalo hunts on the Great Plains, romance could be found. And when Pecos and Andy set out to rescue Doctor Burns, who'd been treating the Comanche, they find a mother and daughter desperately in need of help, thus adding spice to a dangerous task.

About the Author: (from Amazon)

John came west as a young man and settled in Berkeley where he graduated from the University of California. He still lives and writes there and often gives a talk on the California gold rush to the gang at the Freight and Salvage.

He spent a lot of time digging into that gold rush too and many of his stories take place back then. John's characters are so real they'll jump right off the page and talk to you; his villains have hearts as cold as midnight and his heroes almost always do the right thing in the end.

He's working up quite a reputation for his knowledge of that era too. His blog, My Gold Rush Tales, attracted the interest of some TV folks and he appeared in a segment for the Travel Channel about Henry Meiggs, the man who built San Francisco's famous Fisherman's Wharf.

While his first novel, Hangtown Creek, a story of adventure, romance, and coming of age in the early days of the gold rush, was published in 2011, his brand new book, Into the Face of the Devil, moves between Hangtown and the sawmill where James Marshall first found gold, and pits a young man in love for the first time against a killer so evil he could pass for Satan.
