I didn't like this book as much as I've liked the previous books. I felt the author was trying to identify with his character a bit too much. The main character is a Metis man living in Montana. The author is non-Metis. As much as the author would like to identify with Native/Metis perspective, in this instance it was something of a fail based on the plot of this book. I thought the author put his own personal opinion of the subject/plot of the book as a non-Metis person. I am Native and have ma ...more

The first book in this series was very enjoyable. The characters seemed real and there was a good bit of humor. Unfortunately, in this book the author was so busy making a point (lecture) that he forgot to create a decent story, and the characters were just caricatures.

I'd give this a 3.5 stars except Goodreads doesn't have half star ratings. It was a well written mystery in Montana that involved a side of the culture I haven't encountered when I've visited the state. Resistant-to-change ranchers, Indians, naive environmentalists, and abrasive government officials all played a role. I did find the book a little hard to get into initially because I had to adjust to the syntax of Gabriel Du Pre's speech and thoughts. The tale is told from his perspective and he' ...more

It was a little harder to follow than his previous Du Pre' novels, but I still enjoyed it. The characters are always quirky and interesting.

Excellent book.
In this Du Pre mystery, Montana ranchers are pitted against environmentalists, and trespassers are shot. Environmentalists want to reintroduce wolves to the Wolf Mountains, and ranchers are dead set against the idea. Knowing that some of his friends and neighbors are probably the murderers, Du Pre works to solve the puzzle before the situation worsens. There is plenty of pleasure in these novels; I'm happy Open Road Media has reissued them in ebook form.

Somewhat difficult reading for a mystery, because the author writes the main character's dialogue in Métis Creole. The story is about the murders that occur when wolves are reintroduced to a ranching area in northern Montana. Fascinating view of how people living in underpopulated areas view the government and outsiders in general. [Hint: not very pleasantly, and with pretty good reason]

A good book for a quick primer on how people "out west" think.

Peter Bowen (b. 1945) is an author best known for mystery novels set in the modern American West. When he was ten, Bowen’s family moved to Bozeman, Montana, where a paper route introduced him to the grizzled old cowboys who frequented a bar called The Oaks. Listening to their stories, some of which stretched back to the 1870s, Bowen found inspiration for his later fiction.
