    Bobby Underwood s book The Wild Country is like a letter dedicated to the beauty of the unspoiled western environment that existed pre and during the expansion into the unspoiled wilderness of the west coast The book can be examined on a number of levels The Wild Country is basically a revenge story A young boy s family is murdered by a band of outlaws and his sister is kidnapped by their leader The bad man is really really bad and becomes a shadowy and evil figure through out the book T Bobby Underwood s book The Wild Country is like a letter dedicated to the beauty of the unspoiled western environment that existed pre and during the expansion into the unspoiled wilderness of the west coast The book can be examined on a number of levels The Wild Country is basically a revenge story A young boy s family is murdered by a band of outlaws and his sister is kidnapped by their leader The bad man is really really bad and becomes a shadowy and evil figure through out the book The young boy, named Wyn grows up to seek revenge for the vile acts performed upon him and his family and thus makes it his life s mission to try and rescue his abducted sister, while tracking down and killing all of the men responsible The story is quite action packed and fast moving as Wyn ventures his way west to ultimately confront his nemesis One of the things that frustrates me in a story is the dependency to rely heavily of coincidence, which here multiply as the story progresses.Another point which I rarely encounter is the lack of page numbering in a book When the book is set down without a book mark it becomes a challenge to resume reading after the first hour of reading a pencil was used to manually page number the beginning of each chapter.Overall, and all things considered, I rather enjoyed this old time story of the old west, the first book I have read by Mr Underwood and prompts me to perhaps seek out one of the mysteries he has written

    Very enjoyable It s been a long time since I ve read a Western, and this one made me wonder why I had stayed away so long.This is a lush story full of history, gorgeous descriptions and characters to absolutely love It also brilliantly evokes the simpler but tumultuous time of the classic wild west exploration.This is not the first Bobby Underwood I ve read, and like his other books, I just fell in love with the characters They are the obvious strong suit in any Underwood story and, because I Very enjoyable It s been a long time since I ve read a Western, and this one made me wonder why I had stayed away so long.This is a lush story full of history, gorgeous descriptions and characters to absolutely love It also brilliantly evokes the simpler but tumultuous time of the classic wild west exploration.This is not the first Bobby Underwood I ve read, and like his other books, I just fell in love with the characters They are the obvious strong suit in any Underwood story and, because I love character driven stories, I can t help but to come back again and again.In this story, Wyn is just a boy when marauders come onto his family s land, kill his parents and kidnap his sister There is a definite implication that kidnapping wasn t the worse of what happened here, but thankfully, this is very tastefully handled Wyn grows up determined to avenge his family and rescue his sister from the evil man responsible for Wyn s misfortunes.Wyn slowly tracks down other members of band but knows he can never quit until he finds the leader and rescues his sister Along the way, Wyn meets or introduces us to some lovely characters people I would be proud to call friends Better still, even though Wyn cannot imagine ever having the time or the lifestyle to take a wife, he falls in love along the way.While at the beginning, the story seemed a relatively simple one, the complexity of plot that developed over the course of the narrative was surprising and wonderful.I strongly recommend this book to those who enjoy Westerns, or to those who enjoy good story telling

    I noticed Bobby Underwood on GoodReads when he started following my reviews, and enjoyed his book Requiem As a holiday promotion, he offered free downloads for a number of his books, which I eagerly leapt on like a cat on a laser dot Thanks to the author for the wonderful chance to read most of his library A disclaimer I haven t read many, if any, Westerns It wouldn t be my go to genre, but with how much I like the first book I read by the same author, I wanted to give this one a try The I noticed Bobby Underwood on GoodReads when he started following my reviews, and enjoyed his book Requiem As a holiday promotion, he offered free downloads for a number of his books, which I eagerly leapt on like a cat on a laser dot Thanks to the author for the wonderful chance to read most of his library A disclaimer I haven t read many, if any, Westerns It wouldn t be my go to genre, but with how much I like the first book I read by the same author, I wanted to give this one a try The writing is lovely, both matter of fact and elegant, describing the beautiful country and the people Wyn, the hero with the white horse and white hat, chasing down the demons of his past, is a strong good guy in the classic Western style He just wants to get the job done that he s been working on since he was a child and marry the woman of his fantasies In the style of an old Western movie without a huge budget for casting, every character relates to each other to tie the story together neatly at the end In writing, however, this feels like an awful lot of coincidental ties between characters that seemed too convenient The genre is captured nicely, but in modern times it reads almost as sterotypes the strong white hero helped by his Apache friend with broken English, the girl he pines for, the bad guys he has to defeat, the awful things happening to the women in the story At some points I nearly needed my smelling salts, the assaults on females left me feeling faint Joking Somewhat it seems that being a woman in this story meant something bad was certainly going to happen to you, as your lot in life The writing about the scenery and landscapes is lovely, but it could have done without the multiple references to the wild country I got it the first few times, though it is sometimes magic to see where the title of a book emerges in the text Would I readfrom this author Absolutely But I m not as eager to read the sequel to this as I am other styles of his work

    Essentially a revenge novel that is clearly influenced by Zane Grey, with plenty of elegant descriptive prose and several memorable characters A well told tale, although not particularly original.
