Book Review: Skye's West: Rendezvous by Richard S. Wheeler
Skye is our "hero" in the series. In this installment, we learn the story of how he was "pressed into service" (ie, made a slave of the Royal Navy) at the age of 14. After 7 years of hellish treatment and conditions, he escapes only to find himself with very little knowledge of the wilderness, with scouts from the government snapping at his heels, and all the trials and tribulations he can scarcely handle, just to survive. The story begins in 1826 in the Pacific Northwest.
I was a bit distracted during the reading of this book so it took me some time to get through it what with other activities taking more precedence than my precious reading. I still liked it though.
