Review of THE BUCKSKIN TRAIL by JoAnn Arnold
Within the pages of the book The Buckskin Trail readers will embark on a journey of fascination and excitement, of amazement and suspense.
As a young girl, Kelzi Tsali hid while men shot her parents then started their house on fire. Miraculously Kelzi survived, then went to live with her Cherokee grandparents. As she grows, she is taught about her heritage, the ways and teachings of her father's people and the role she is to play in preserving the sacred land that belongs to them. She knows that she was spared the day her parents died for this great purpose.
Kelzi learns the great lessons of the Cherokee people and works hard to fulfill her destiny and to understand the great gifts she's been given. Her knowledge and her gifts instill in her the strength she needs to face the men who will stop at nothing to kill her and take the land her parents died to protect. Her path is treacherous, her mission dangerous and deadly, yet Kelzi is determined to avenge those who gave their lives to protect her people's land and legacy.
Filled with high-octane action, nail-biting suspense, a touch of the paranormal and the perfect amount of romance, The Buckskin Trail delivers a fast-paced read that you won't put down until the last page.
Arnold's writing is fresh and beautifully descriptive. She paints lovely landscapes with her words and delivers unforgettable characters. Complex and engaging the story weaves history and tradition into a modern day tail of heroism and honor. Readers will be cheering and praising Kelzi as she goes against the odds and risks everything to take her place within the history of her people.
High praise for JoAnn Arnold and The Buckskin Trail
My greatest claim to fame is my family. I am married to my prince charming and have four awesome children. This year I experienced the joy of becoming a grandmother to my sweet baby girl Halle. I love to travel and I love to write books.
