Campfire Fun Jul 7, 2009
Walks in the Sun is a simple but thoroughly enjoyable tale about a band of plains Indians making a journey to Central America. Like all of Mr. Coldsmith?s stories, there is nothing complex or particularly deep. This is a western, after all, and conforming to the genre, the heroes are brave, the women are true and the words are short and simple. What makes Mr. Coldsmith stand out from other writers is his unique perspective. Usually writing from a native point of view, Mr. Coldsmith?s novels are a refreshing breeze. Whether it?s the introduction of the horse (the Trail of the Spanish Bit series) or, in this case, a band aboriginal Odysseuses, Coldsmith manages to find unique stories in an otherwise worn and clichéd genre.
