A well-written and vivid story about some exceptional characters. It's a true story written by the protaganists' grandson about lives lived at the point of contact between Indians and white settlers. Our heroine is the only civilian retired on a full military pension in honor of her heroism, Toby Riddle. It was a great read and uniquely interesting for the insights into the tribal pressures on Captain Jack, an outlook only possible from inside the tribe and Jack's family.

I met Mr. Riddle when he was a guest speaker at a CT Authors and Publishers meeting. His book, based on a true story of his relatives both European descendant and Native American, is just the kind of book I can sink my teeth into--having read many of the Gear books, Amanda Cockrell, and Linda Lay Schuler. I respect the research that goes into these sagas and Mr. Riddle is no slacker there--in fact his writing group had to hold him back on some of the more banal details. I hope some day I'll be able to join him in this genre, as the research seems daunting, but the research I did for "Forever Retro Blues," being in part my own history, did not seem so daunting. I hope he will write again.

Wow, I could really see this story on the screen. It would make a great movie or mini-series. The author pulls you into Indian life and Oregon in the 1870s. Sometimes it's so real it makes you shiver. Lots of great action scenes and cool Indian words and ceremonies. Great job!

It's one thing to write a review of Lost River, I'd rather write a lament. To be brief, Lost River is a book all peoples should read. Within its words are the tears Riddle feels for his own native heritage. Well done, Pax. You left me embarrased by the mistakes of my ancestors and the sorrows of yours.

All those history classes I took in college have earned me zip in the real world, but it has made me one picky reader when it comes to historic novels. Very few pass the test. Mister Riddle's novel does. Better, this was the story behind the facts I read in school. Well done!

This was a great book. I could not put it down. This historical novel kept me spell bound from beginning to end. Very good, Paxton.
