Publisher's Summary

The year was 1803. It was a time when the West was not only frontier, it was the undiscovered country. It was the time of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, before the trains of Prairie Schooners and settlers, before cowboys or cattle drives, before Colonel Colt and the six-shooter, and nearly a three quarters of a century before George Armstrong Custer and his men were killed at Little Big Horn. It was a time when the western fur trade was new, and only the first of the mountain men had left the Mississippi behind on their journey into the wilderness. It was there that Nathaniel Horne was alone and dying from the lack of food and the snows of winter. It was there a savage native people, in spite of the fact that he was not a true Human Being, gave him shelter. From that kindness came Snow-Walker, and Nathaniel began his Incidents Among the Savages.

    I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".

    "Wonderful story: Mountain men and Native Americans"

    A wonderful depiction of the early pioneer Mountain Men and the Native Americans mostly violent interaction. Narration was different yet masterfully enjoyable. Before the U,S. Gov't surveyed the lands West, there was the hard courageous interaction between the "tough as nails" Mountain Men" and Native Americans. I also really enjoyed the spiritual/metaphysical aspect of the Native Americans spiritual visions and ability to foresee future events. Lot's of good old depictions of hand to hand fighting. I loved it! Enjoy, and "Watch your top knot"........watch your'n".

    "remarkable western works"
    Where does Incidents Among the Savages rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    one of the best


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Incidents Among the Savages?

    hard to pick one moment there were so many good ones.


    What about David R. Lewis’s performance did you like?

    He is a terrific narrator as well as an author. He goes from male to female -- and native American to mountain man effortlessly.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No the whole book was excellent and every bit as good as Louis Lamoure or other famous authors.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a complete surprise -- I loved his trail series and hope he writes more. I picked this book not expecting it to be as good but as a work of literature of the early American experience it is one of the best I've read.

    "Engrossing and brilliantly written"

    The performance was exactly as expected, outstanding. Lewis was superb and did relate the joy, sadness, anger and sorrow with only what a brilliant narrator could do. He is actually an excellent actor as well as a writer. The story was well done and the details were superb, very well done so that as to paint exacting pictures. The characters in the story fit perfectly as do the time line and the details.

    "Love his knowledge and wit!"

    I love all Mr. Lewis's books and his narration makes them even more exciting! I am not one to read books over, and over, but I must confess this and the trail series have been listened to at least three times. His mystery genre not so much!
