Eh, it's a hokey read, one that requires you to suspend belief, and if you can accept that; it will make this read pretty enjoyable if the whole cowboys/Indian thing is stilling residing in your gray matter. The prose moves at a rapid pace with plenty of bloodshed (like plenty of scalping--even a castration),and a great deal of characterizations--some that teeter quite close to stereotypes.

For a 2 month period I went through the first dozen of this series. I remember enjoying it in high school and they have collected dust on the shelf since. Every time I looked at them I thought I should read them again but not having an electronic version hampered my desire. I finally got back into the world of the Seneca tribe when the pilgrims first came to this country. Following multipal generations of this family is enjoyable. Held up pretty good.
The White Indian Series should have been a good series. It is set in colonial America and has a great protagonist, but Porter is such a lousy writer that he detracts from, rather than adds to, the series. His dialogue is stilted and not at all believable. To bad; I was prepared to really like this.
