    My dad is a huge fan of Western movies, and I grew up on a steady diet of John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Jimmy Stuart and all the other greats battling it out with Indians on the high plains and in the deserts BATTLE OF FORTUNE WELLS stands up against any of those stories, and the way Dan Chamberlain writes brings the people and places on the page to life Chamberlain captured my attention from the first page, and the action just kept coming I found myself putting this book down to do other thing My dad is a huge fan of Western movies, and I grew up on a steady diet of John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Jimmy Stuart and all the other greats battling it out with Indians on the high plains and in the deserts BATTLE OF FORTUNE WELLS stands up against any of those stories, and the way Dan Chamberlain writes brings the people and places on the page to life Chamberlain captured my attention from the first page, and the action just kept coming I found myself putting this book down to do other things like eat and tend to the cows with great reluctance Even when I was away from the story, the characters lingered The period of history Chamberlain addresses is complicated, to say the least, and he does an admirable job of reflecting perspectives from both sides of the battle without pandering to either As he did in THE LONG SHOOTERS, Chamberlain mixes in a hint of romance and weaves in bits of the character s pasts that leaves you wantingI d love to knowabout the relationship between Tomas Killain and Pony Johnson.If you read the Author s Note at the end of the book, you ll learn that Chamberlain found an obscure reference to Comanche Indians leaving the reservations in the 1870s to attack ranchers and buffalo hunters It is from this tiny reference that he created BATTLE OF FORTUNE WELLS To me, this is the heart of imagination to take a slice of history and write a story that is quite believable.After reading THE LONG SHOOTERS, I waited impatiently for Chamberlain s next book, and at the end of BATTLE OF FORTUNE WELLS, I find myself tapping my foot again, hoping he ll find time to get his next book out soon Five stars

    One of the things I liked the most when I read Daniel C Chamberlain s first novel were his characters While they were men and women highly qualified for survival in their hostile environment, they didn t lack sensitivity and depth of thought, and that made them evenattractive to the reader In Battle of Fortune Wells I ve foundof what I liked so much that first time in The long shooters.The way the author remains objective while he presents the reasons that each side has to tak One of the things I liked the most when I read Daniel C Chamberlain s first novel were his characters While they were men and women highly qualified for survival in their hostile environment, they didn t lack sensitivity and depth of thought, and that made them evenattractive to the reader In Battle of Fortune Wells I ve foundof what I liked so much that first time in The long shooters.The way the author remains objective while he presents the reasons that each side has to take part in this war is another point I consider very high in this novel Especially when dealing with a complicated issue like the clash of cultures, where both sides have enough reason to fight against those considered enemies, who threaten their way of life How the author shows us what both parts have suffered and what they have at stake isthan enough to feel empathy for them.Descriptions are perfect to be located in time and space and at times you feel you must remain as quiet and still as the protagonist, feeling completely wrapped in the action.I think Battle of Fortune Wells is another clear demonstration of the author s talent in this craft of writing and I look forward to his next book, especially in the Western genre

    This author amazes me I don t usually read westerns but after reading his last novel, The Lone Shooter, I couldn t wait to read this one I think Dan has out done himself on this one He had taken an issue that was never a black and white issue to begin with and developed it into a story that is so soul touching that I found myself crying for the Indians, the cowboys, and the Calvary This book has a beautiful love story within the pages, one of a man willing to offer the ultimate sacrifice for This author amazes me I don t usually read westerns but after reading his last novel, The Lone Shooter, I couldn t wait to read this one I think Dan has out done himself on this one He had taken an issue that was never a black and white issue to begin with and developed it into a story that is so soul touching that I found myself crying for the Indians, the cowboys, and the Calvary This book has a beautiful love story within the pages, one of a man willing to offer the ultimate sacrifice for the woman he loves But it is not just a love story It is a story that deals with cultures and differences The book deal with betrayal and heartache and is very touching If you ve never read this author, give him a try I highly recommend this book and The Long Shooters

    Good readGives great insight and raises some great questions I ve never pondered relating to settler and Native American life and conflict Solid characters full of life and color The main character, Killain, has a lot of appeal, although he seems a bit superhuman at times Still, his expertise and qualities do much to flush out a quality plot with political subtext within the story All in all, this is a page turner that keeps the reader entranced That s an automatic 4 star by my rating Beyo Good readGives great insight and raises some great questions I ve never pondered relating to settler and Native American life and conflict Solid characters full of life and color The main character, Killain, has a lot of appeal, although he seems a bit superhuman at times Still, his expertise and qualities do much to flush out a quality plot with political subtext within the story All in all, this is a page turner that keeps the reader entranced That s an automatic 4 star by my rating Beyond that, it s quality writing and well illustrated through the imagery presented

    The Battle of Fortune Wells is as good as any western I have read He delves into the characters and gives the reader an indepth look into the complexity of the White man Indian era while maintaining a fast pace The book also has a good love story and I found myself hoping Tomas Killain wouldn t be one of the stone hearted heroes in so many books who throw away a chance for love and a family If I were comparing this book to any other series it would be The Wagons West series by Dana Fuller Ros The Battle of Fortune Wells is as good as any western I have read He delves into the characters and gives the reader an indepth look into the complexity of the White man Indian era while maintaining a fast pace The book also has a good love story and I found myself hoping Tomas Killain wouldn t be one of the stone hearted heroes in so many books who throw away a chance for love and a family If I were comparing this book to any other series it would be The Wagons West series by Dana Fuller Ross, but I think in the future, western stories will be compared to the works of Dan C Chamberlain

    Not since I was a kid and discovered Zane Grey, have I read a western that kept me reading like Battle of Fortune Wells This story is fast paced even when the action slows, and that isn t often Dan Chamberland took an idea, coupled it with history, put it in breath taking scenery with characters one will come to appreciate If you like Zane Grey s Riders of the Purple Sage or John Wayne s Hondo you re in for a treat.
