The River (2018)
(Flight of the Hawk, book 1)
W Michael Gear
"Flight of the Hawk is a fast-paced story of intrigue, set in 1812, during the fur trade and on the brink of war. With well-detailed scenes and an evocative atmosphere and milieu, it tells the story of a brave man's journey through the complex interplay of Americans, British, French, Spaniards, and Native Americans. This is a compelling, well-researched narrative, from beginning to end."
