The Nations and the accounting of Marshall Reeves encounters with the lawless, his thirty year career, and the fact that Bass Reeves was also a Black Man, is brilliantly told through the authors unique and excellent writing style of telling a story through the characters themselves. The reader is drawn into the story with the sense of participation through dialogue and details of the era that gives a true sense of being there. The Nations is more than a Western; it has characters, sub-story lines and subject matter that are identifiable with the problems and issues of people today.
The Nations is a true western with a real hero and authentic characters and details. As with all of Farmer-Stienke novels, the Nations is packed full of action, adventure, twist and turns, and saying any more would ruin the story for future readers.
For the Western buffs, this is a winner, and for those who’ve never liked Westerns, The Nations will change your mind and give you a new admiration for the way of the West.
