Reviews of FOLLOW THE RIVER:"Good but not great. There's a lot going on in this book, but the story is not very well-written." - Amazon Reviewer"This was an enjoyable book but there were parts that were a bit slow to get into. I read it in one day, but I would have liked a little more time spent on the characters and their relationship." - Amazon Reviewer"SOME of the characters were intriguing
"A fascinating and compelling story of the return of the American West to the USA. Follow the River is a brilliant examination of how the Native Americans lived in peace and harmony with all humans, before white invaders decided to wipe them out. It's a story that's old, but one that never seemed to die. This is a book that should be heard, read and re-read."
I needed to write a literature review about Follow The River and A Tear And A Smile books. I read Follow The River with pleasure and got an A+ for my book review. James Alexander Thom is a wonderful writer.
