    1. Karen

      I quit reading about 2/3 of the way through. all they did and talked about was getting chased by Indians. no other real plot.

      This was an interesting and educational read, but not my favorite Henty. I did like the setting in Colorado a couple hundred years ago; Tom joins an uncle and together they strike a rich mine, outwit and escape hostile indians, navigate the Colorado river, make it back alive, and eventually live happily ever after on the proceeds of their mine.

      An easy read about adventureI really enjoyed the story. The pacing was on and it kept me interested. Just the thing you need before heading to bed for the night. Not your typical shooter up western but more of an overview of a grand adventure.

    6. Mackenzie

      Great adventure masterfully toldAbsolutely loved this book, it was simple and almost wholesome in the freedom that was available back in the 1800s.
