Publisher's Summary

Tom Murrell could never understand his father's dreams of carving a new life out of the wilderness. He wanted to do something else with his life besides spend it behind a plow, but with the family moving to the Red River in Arkansaw Territory, he was stuck. Everything changes for Tom when he witnesses the death of Tiatesun, spiritual leader of the Kadohadacho tribe, and is drawn into a raging conflict between the Kado and their arch enemies, the Osage. Their new community will never be safe until Tom uncovers the Lost Treasure of the Kadohadacho.

Action and intriguing

An intriguing listen and a really good story that had interesting descriptions and an adventure one guy didn't plan on. It had action, great characters and it grabbed your attention from the beginning with very unique characters, like the elder when he starts to tell the tale. so when you get a chance pick up a copy and enjoy.

Loved It!

Tom Murrell finds himself in the middle of an Indian war when he stops and protects Indians from a brutal attack. One of the Indians passes his gift to Tom and makes him promises to deliver a message to his tribe. While delivering the message, Tom finds himself heading for a great adventure. This story was impressive. I really enjoyed reading about it. It made me want to go and surround myself with literature from that time period. This is a fictional account of events that actually took place. I suppose one could complain that the text is written more modern than historical. That doesn't really bother me. As long as the historical events remain pristine, I'm okay. If one of the settlers had pulled out an iPhone, then I'd have a problem. Just giving an example. I really adored the characters. Especially Mattie. I feel like Mattie has the personality that I would have in those times. She's fierce and determined and doesn't let the fact that she is a woman get in the way of what she wants or her pursuit of learning. I really hope that her character was based on a real person from that time. The narrator did too amazing of a job. I really felt like I was actually there. There were times he even made words sound like the sound he was going for. There were times where there were sounds of drums. I felt like he was actually depicting drums. His name is Eddie Garvar. I haven't heard of him until this book but I'll definitely seek other audiobooks by him because of this one. This book has impressed me so much. I will probably find a way to get a physical copy of it to read multiple times. It has inspired me to do research of the people the story references. I'm not really shocked to learn that it took the author fourteen years to write this book. He definitely made sure that it was a book worth reading that didn't disappoint anybody. Is it possible to give a book 50 stars?

Solid historical fiction of rel. unknown peoples

This is my second time through this book, this time as an audio. While it's rare for me to listen to a book so quickly after reading the story, I was offered the opportunity to review this audiobook and couldn't say no! My previous review of the written book can be read below this review, so I'm going to concentrate more on the audio than the book itself. However, I will say that even though this was my second time through this story in less than 3 months, I still very much enjoyed the story and I'm glad the author wrote this to share the story of the relatively unknown Kadohadacho peoples.

Eddie Garver was the narrator for this book and I thought he did a great job. He has a very good story telling voice and I thought he did a good job with the various voices and I had no trouble distinguishing one character from another. I listened to the book at varying speeds from 1.0-1.5 and it all worked, although you get more of the cadence of the story when it's at the original speed. After listening to the audiobook, I'm reminded even more of Laura Ingalls Wilder (the tv series), maybe because it feels more like a narrator (Tom) telling his story. Anyway, I definitely recommend this audiobook and I think I enjoyed it even more this way.

Special thanks to the publisher for this ARC recording in exchange for an honest review.

Previous review of written book:
I really enjoyed this story--I would describe it as a novelization of historical events that occurred in the ancestry of the author. It felt like a cross between Laura Ingalls Wilder and Treasure Island with a pinch of magic/Native American spirits. This story brings to life the history of a little known tribe of Native Americans known as the Caddoo (which I think are called Kado or Kadohadacho in this book). The characters are very interesting and I particularly like the two main characters, Tom (narrator) and Mattie. Even James, who I don't like at the beginning, grows on me so that by the end, I admire some things about him. I think this book would be suitable for older middle schoolers and young adults, but there is a few instances of killing mentioned in the book as an FYI to more sensitive readers.
