The Cowboy and the Cossack

Eria Assigned to accompany them is a band of Cossacks Russia’s elite horsemen and warriors From the first day distrust between the two groups disrupts. What a wonderful book I heard about it from FictionL an online group and was encouraged to read it It s as much than just a western as The Sparrow is than just science fiction First of all the setting Russia in the 1880s with cossacks Tartars humongous wolves tigers and the Siberian weather Then the characters These are what made the book for me They were cowboys and cossacks but they were so fully developed you felt like you knew them Rivalries turn into friendships as the men drive the cattle across Russia from the port of Vladivostok to the small village of Bakaskaya Some of the passage were so beaufully written and moving I would recommend this book to men and women alike for both its sense of adventure and its poignant scenes and use of language

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

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
