Well, as historical fiction goes, it isn't bad.
GM just has a really boring writing style, a one-book-author. You notice it more after reading more of his works, and how similar they all are, with the same dumb jokes. His plots, in this book, are short and don't overlap. There is nothing that ties the end to the beginning, much. GM knows his style is dull, I think, for his characters all speak with WAY too many exclamation points.
I will admit his Biblical values in his characters, and his use of spirtual warfare, and Christian struggles of the time period...are all masterfully done. I especially like the references to the Praying Indians.
Still, aside from being historical fiction, I never would've finished the book if I didn't have to read it for school.
