I have to keep looking at the cover to remember that this is an Orson Scott Card novel. It's so different from his Ender series. I enjoy reading of Alvin's abilities and the knacks experienced by others in the series. The character interaction is so human and upwarming in spite of the ambitious a##holes and the overly godly. And, besides, I'm having great fun trying to reconcile our frontier American history with Alvin's.

I'm curious if Card solicited help for some of his twisty names; it's certainly been a laugh to read them into interpretation!

Have a look at Card's website...it's Alvin Maker's world all over...!
