Characters The Cowboy and the Cossack

Review ¹ The Cowboy and the Cossack 102 The cattle drive But as they overcome hardships and trials along the trail a deep understanding and mutual respect develops between the men in both group. The premise sounded really fun no matter how improbable The execution however leaves much to be desired Too many details about things that make no difference to the story lots of repetition and characters that just don t ring true The narration was fine but the cowboy and Russian accents got old fast Didn t finish but got past the half way point

Review ¹ The Cowboy and the Cossack 102 On a cold spring day in 1880 fifteen American cowboys sail into Vladivostock with a herd of 500 cattle for delivery to a famine stricken town deep in Sib. Frankly I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this read This was my first foray into the western genre and while it encompassed many of the traits one would expect from the genre such as cowboys and the herd it was truly unusual and a bit over the top I would recommend this book to any person man or woman who wants a really fantastic story with compelling well thought out characters I couldn t help but feel a bit sad when it all came to an end Also worth noting are the fantastic illustrations by Brad Holland in this edition
