    GOOD INDIAN(ANNOTATED ) (English Edition) Door: B.M. BOWER,

    There is a saying—and if it is not purely Western, it is at least purely American — that the only good Indian is a dead Indian. In the very teeth of that, and in spite of the fact that he was neither very good, nor an Indian — nor in any sense "dead" — men called Grant Imsen "Good Indian" to his face; and if he resented the title, his resentment was never made manifest — perhaps because he had grown up with the name, he rather liked it when he was a little fellow, and with custom had come to take it as a matter of course. Because his paternal ancestry went back, and back to no one knows where among the race of blue eyes and fair skin, the Indians repudiated relationship with him, and called him white man — though they also spoke of him unthinkingly as "Good Injun." Because old Wolfbelly himself would grudgingly admit under pressure that the mother of Grant had been the half-caste daughter of Wolfbelly's sister, white men remembered the taint when they were angry, and called him Injun. And because he stood thus between the two races of men, his exact social status a subject always open to argument, not even the fact that he was looked upon by the Harts as one of the family, with his own bed always ready for him in a corner of the big room set apart for the boys, and with a certain place at the table which was called his — not even his assured position there could keep him from sometimes feeling quite alone, and perhaps a trifle bitter over his loneliness.So, there is the explanation of the cringe-worthy title of the book and the introduction to our brooding main character. He has gone through or at least to the second year of college, because his father, when he died in the Hart's ranch house, asked Phoebe to make sure Grant was educated as far as the bag of money he left her would last. But Grant is home again now, with a vocabulary to puzzle people when he wants to use it, and he is ready for something to happen in his life. Which of course it does, in the person of Evadna, a distant relative of Phoebe's from back east. She has been orphaned and has no place else to go. Phoebe is hoping for some matchmaking, but the two young people seem to hate each other from the start. And then things get complicated, witha shady lawyer trying to arrange to take over the ranch, someone shooting at Grant, and lots of galloping back and forth to town, and coded messages sent by telegraph.One fun character is the young lady telegraph operator named Georgie. I liked her much better than Evadna immediately, maybe because when we first meet her in the general store she is talking about a five pound box of chocolates she is expecting on the next train. Another young lady affected by Grant's presence is Rachel, a young Indian woman who lives in the Indian camp near town. And her uncle Peppajee is an impressive character as well: I love the way he tells off Grant at a certain point in the story. One thing that continued to make me cringe even after I got over the title was the use of the 'heap big meybeso you ketchum' type of dialogue whenever any of the Indians and the whites were talking to each other. Bower puts in an author's note when she begins the first long conversation between the two groups, but knowing that this is the way the Indians of the time supposedly actually spoke does not make it any more comfortable to read in this day and age. However, I never had the feeling that the dialogue was done disrespectfully, or that the Indian characters were slighted in any way. I would not have kept reading if that had been the case.There is mystery here, some romance, lots of lover's quarrels (that Evadna is SO self-centered!), rowdy young western men trying to protect their ranch from ruffians, dramatic moments, funny moments, a few 'You Go, girl!' moments, and more than once when I could only sigh and say 'Oh, no, not that'. Definitely an entertaining read!

    Cabin Fever (Annotate) (English Edition) Door: B. M. Bower,

    ... the mind fed too long upon monotony succumbs to the insidious mental ailment which the West calls 'cabin fever.' ... Bud Moore, ex-cow-puncher and now owner of an auto stage that did not run in the winter, was touched with cabin fever and did not know what ailed him. His stage line ran from San Jose, California, up through Los Gatos and over the Bear Creek road across the summit of the Santa Cruz Mountains and down to the State Park, which is locally called Big Basin, the first state park of California. For something over fifty miles of wonderful scenic travel he charged six dollars, and usually his big car was loaded to the running boards. Bud was a good driver, and he had a friendly pair of eyes--dark blue and with a humorous little twinkle deep down in them somewhere--and a human little smiley quirk at the corners of his lips. He did not know it, but these things helped to fill his car. ..."If you would test the soul of a friend, take him into the wilderness and rub elbows with him for five months! One of three things will surely happen: You will hate each other afterward with that enlightened hatred which is seasoned with contempt; you will emerge with the contempt tinged with a pitying toleration, or you will be close, unquestioning friends to the last six feet of earth--and beyond. All these things will cabin fever do, and more. It has committed murder, many's the time. It has driven men crazy. It has warped and distorted character out of all semblance to its former self. It has sweetened love and killed love. There is an antidote--but I am going to let you find the antidote somewhere in the story."
