Fire Along the Big Muddy
Looking for action, giving lip, and desertion can get you killed… but loving can tame anything!
Miles tried and for several weeks he did manage it, but Captain Pennington and Sergeant Noordstrom just had it in for him and it did not last. No matter what he did it was always wrong, or he was being insubordinate. Miles just had to hang on for just a few more months, and it would be all over for him. But the story is just beginning…
Strong characters, terrific action!
I have a particular fondness for John Legg’s mountain man stories, but Nathan Squire (the protagonist of Winter Rage) has become my new favorite. He’s bigger than life, almost reminds me of a Conan the Barbarian archetype, the way he can take an attack un phased and crush bones with his bare hands. He’s leading an inexperienced but well-financed trapping expedition into the Rockies, as the experienced guide and expedition leader. The story has twists left and right, from treacherous relations to … Well, I don’t want to give too much a way… Point being, Legg keeps you turning pages and the action keeps coming! — Kevin
Exciting and interesting piece of mountain man fiction…
Definitely 5 stars. This is the first book I’ve ever read by this author, John Legg. Great writing style and storyline…one of the best mountain man era books I’ve ever read. Looking forward to reading the second book in this series. — wheelgunner
Rendezvous and Blackfoot Revenge with Page-turning Action
As the saga continues, an old nemesis returns with more than 200 Blackfoot warriors who are all bent on revenge and the honor of killing a feared enemy.
Fast action, great characters, outstanding settings, authentic fight scenarios, plenty of twists and turns, and a good understanding of the people, vernacular, and times combine for a fascinating read. This second book also stands alone and is well worth the time. — Sam B. Wagner
Blackfoot Dawn is….”Well, lads, this here be some damp …powder, and there ain’t no use in sayin’ nay to it”
And that , mon Amis, sums up only one thrill in this second book in this awesome series! Yes, I read & reviewed the first, recommended it highly, even suggested Mr. Legg turn it series-bound. Not sure if it was my urging, but I am most grateful he has. We join Nathaniel Squire and crew where we left off, on their return trip through rough and very dangerous lands onto St. Louis. The true meaning of friendship is demonstrated fer us lads time and agin. We’re exposed to both good and terrible examples of friends. Nathaniel’s relationships continue to develop deeper, and we read about some terrifying back stories , helping his development into present mountain man. If you read the first, I don’t even have to suggest reading this one….you’re on your way to purchase it and are reading my review to get even more excited! If you haven’t, buy ’em both; find your favorite reading spot, well stocked with your reading beverages & snacks, settle in for sheer enjoyment. Now, I purchased this before my review copy arrived, and will acknowledge this is a honest review without any strings ( I know there are words I should use here, but I forgot ’em in my excitement to highly recommend this book!!!). BUY IT, READ IT IMMEDIATELY, THANK ME LATER!!! — Dennis H
Having had the opportunity to enjoy several of Mr. Legg’s books it goes without saying that I am definitely thrilled with this extraordinary western episode. This story certainly is impressive throughout and there is never one dull moment from beginning to end. There are continuous thrilling episodes of ongoing adventures that satisfies all readers seeking to fulfill their desired intents.
This is definitely a five stars, plus, based on the author’s apparent knowledge and research experience exhibited from beginning to end. The characters selected certainly were an impressive group that showed their camaraderie many times over. Too, the storylines were consistently impressive and unsurpassed in quality and action
I was somewhat dismayed in the ending, but to reveal my reasoning would definitely betray other readers of the pleasure to enjoy the story. Based on the profanity within the story, I cannot say the book is family-friendly, but it is definitely a heartwarming adventure worthy of you time to follow this exciting group of individuals.
Definitely recommend this book, as well as other releases by Mr. John Legg, who apparently does his best to entertain his readers with plenty of exciting adventures. If you are seeking excitement, the jump aboard the Legg express as the excitement never ceases! — Charles Castell
Great book. Author keeps you on the edge tithe unexpected ending of the book. Great vivid look into the struggles of the mountain men.
Highly recommend this book. — Mike Bradford
A SUPERNATURAL WESTERN !!!!!!
Normally I am a ” meat & Potato ” type person and
not attracted to any fantastic, Science Fiction books,
however, I unknowingly started this typical Western story,
then the author cleverly eased in the Supernatural aspects.
I found I was enjoying the book and completed it.
Like the old TV Commercial ” Try it, you will like it” lazy-b
Interesting take on a Western
Wolf is entertaining and has no problem keeping the readers interest. It is violent without being disgusting and includes sexual material without being in any way pornographic. I will read more by this author. KOBAM
One of the Most Enjoyable Books Ever!
This is just a simple, somewhat mostly barbaric cast of characters in one of the most creative stories ever! Sprinkled with a bit of fairy dust, a few giant monsters, several romantic scenes and a touch of true love, blended with human compassion, and you have an idea of what to expect. Totally entertaining and enjoyable. Kindle Customer
Damn good book
Very good book action abounds. Good read though the constant insults were a little to much. Overall it was well worth reading. Amazon Customer
A Pleasure to Read
A master of the western genre, John Legg is a great writer whose clean efficient prose is a pleasure to read. “Comanche Blood” tells the story of two adversaries – a Comanche and a white – who develop great respect for one another over the span of fifty years. The story documents the closing of the west and the destruction of the Comanche nation. The tale ends wistfully as the old antagonists recognize the passing of the years and the ending of an era. — David Overly, Ph.D.
This book was a riveting tale of two men’s lives
Although the book was very long I started it thinking if I got bored I didn’t have to finish it if it was boring. I started reading and the story was so interesting that I was surprised when I reached the end so quickly. I loved this book, the story was so interesting, the two men’s lives crossed so many times and they became friends and family. — Kindle Customer
