Shadow Riders

I can see how the story had potential, but it came In my opinion, this book fell way flat. Rob and Luke take readers on a ride wilder than a Bill Cody-style rodeo. The accuracy of the historical content is astonishing. I was not sure how it would turn out in the end I figured a happy ending, but not sure how the happiness would evolve and play out. I will be promoting this book to my students because this will appeal to their interests. Shadow Riders In 1874 Rob McCann and his adopted Native brother Luke frantically chase after the thieves who have stolen their horses and wounded their father. I am absolutely shocked at the amount of research the author did.

Book Review: Shadow Riders by B.J. Bayle

shadow riders bayle b j

With bitter determination and help from the Native population, the settlers manag. Besides the terrible life-threatening hardships brought on by bad weather and brutal terrain, Rob worries about his mother and wounded father and fears he might even lose Luke and never find Smokey or the other horses. Fully awake now, Rob reached for the edge of the loft and let his almost six-foot length dangle into the room below before he let go. Maybe I'll pass it down to my younger brother, but that's about it. In my opinion, this book fell way flat. Learning that a new force called the North-West Mounted Police has come west, the brothers continue south to locate them and ask for help.

Caught between his loyalty to Red. From below, he heard his father's muffled voice, and sounds on the rough floor told him that Luke was sliding to the ladder a few feet away. Well, I'm having a hard time finding anything else to say about this book. Bayle has my respect for refraining to call the horses by their 21st century breed names, instead sticking to terms actually used during that time period. The boys are cunning and smart.

Book Review: Shadow Riders by B.J. Bayle

As they struggle to survive, they find themselves caught up in the rivalry between two fur-trading empires. Go ahead and give it a try if you can track it down. I'm thinking it's out there still. However, I am aware that the ages of the main characters, Luke and Rob, were at this time the age where a boy became a man. He sensed that Luke was beside him as they reached his father, who was peering through the little window at the front of the house.

B.J. Bayle (Author of Red River Rising)

Sorry for the terrible review. Maybe if I was younger, and if I didn't read so many young adult books with awesome characters, it wouldn't have bothered me as much. The plot started off fast with the harebrained ideas of two boys faced with starvation the next winter if they don't get their stolen horses back. In my middle school, there are many students who read stories of historical fiction. In 1874, after their father is wounded by hard men who have stolen a number of mares and Smokey, a prized stallion, sixteen-year-old Rob McCann and his adopted Native brother, Luke, ride frantically to Fort Ellice, Manitoba, in the vain expectation that the horse rustlers have stopped there. Learning that a new force called the North-West Mounted Police has come west, the brothers continue south to locate them and ask for help. I am assuming that with a death in my family and the craziness that happened during my reading of this novel, I lost my interest.

My mind was just in a different place. Bayle's young adult fiction brings Canada's past alive on the page. The E-mail message field is required. Perilous Passage, her novel about explorer David Thompson, is also available from Dundurn. They ride to the nearby Fort Ellice for help and decide that their best chance of recovering the horses is to track down the newly formed North-West Mounted Police. Besides the terrible life-threatening hardships brought on by bad weather and brutal terrain, Rob worries about his mother and wounded father and fears he might even lose Luke and never find Smokey or the other horses.

There is action and history plenty. The sea captain who finds the teenager gives him the only name he knows, while others derisively dub him Peter No-Name. I will be putting together a book giveaway contest soon so pay attention for the details. I always cringe at the thought of writing a negative review for a book, but I promised to be honest. Learning that a new force called the North-West Mounted Police has come west, the brothers continue south to locate them and ask for help. Any other reproduction is prohibited without permission.

The boys ride to Fort Ellice, Manitoba in hopes of cutting the thieves off, but instead learn that a new force called the North-West Mounted Police have formed and are bringing law and order to the Canadian wilderness. It was a pleasant surprise. I was hooked right away in the beginning and was fascinated to learn about this time period as many of the people in the novel were real people.

Besides the terrible life-threatening hardships brought on by bad weather and brutal terrain, Rob worries about his mother and wounded father and fears he might even lose Luke and never find Smokey or the other horses. The other purpose is that many female students read novels about horses in my school. This could be in part due to the pace of the plot. You feel for the characters at all part of story even if the emotion is lacking at points through the story.
