This is an absolutely beautiful book. Filled with less caustic Mark Twain-style wit and compassion. It deals with the issue of black slavery and first nations displacement with sensitive irony. Provides an exciting and interesting view into the further settlement of the west. A lovely story of a young man of great character who comes into his own, against all odds.
