In this book, Susan Wise Bauer guides readers through important writings that epitomize that way of thinking and shows how science developed from its early beginnings in philosophical contemplation to a systematic method that provides a broad understanding of the universe. It is more than a list of primary sources or a guide for further reading. It provides an excellent introduction for students and for n Carl Sagan once said that science is more a way of thinking than it is a body of knowledge

The story opens with Captain Collin Mattison returning to London after six years of being away at war. He goes to The Lamb and Wig, an inn where six years ago, he spent the happiest month of his life. I love how the hero so very wisely puts a chink in the armor of the selfish and spoiled heroine to humanize her. It made for a unique and entertaining tale of redemption.

Follow Matt Daly as he falls in love, courts, begins a family, and overcomes harsh obstacles as he builds up a ranch in the Montana territory in the 1880s.

I am a big fan of historical details, but when the story feels like it comes to an abrupt halt to explain some point like a history book, it's not as enjoyable to read. The plot is interesting, although there are points where it drags. The jumps in time make reading it frustrating.

As a western tale, it is that. The characters were alright but I just didn't connect with them very well.

I nearly didn't write a review because I didn't want to be the only one who wasn't impressed with this book. I found it to be terribly slow the first almost half of the book. Slow to the point I nearly deleted it. The story felt all over the place. I really like a lot of detail so you feel you're part of the story, however, too often this went into way too much detail to the point of boring. It was very real to the time period but I probably wouldn't recommend this book.
For the first half of the book I was so bored that I almost deleted the book from my kindle. Then the story picked up with a lot of action. Unfortunately the hero also turned into a worthless drunk at the same point. It was hard to sympathize or empathize with him because of his own self destructive habits. When he finally gets back to being human the story again becomes boring. On the plus side I did finally finish the book so I gave it an average rating.
This was an interesting read. The author spent a good part of the first half of the book developing characters and the setting for the book. The descriptions of how to saddle a horse or round up cattle, to the setting of the ranch, and the inside of the house, painted a great picture of the west in the 1800s.

The second part of the book had more action, and the descriptions continued to help me feel like I was right there with the main characters.

Our book club had the rare opportunity to discuss this book with the author. What a delight it was to hear how she went about writing the book and where the origin of the story began.
Excellent reading.good story line.also descriptions generally were woven into the story lines. Description gave depth to the characters and the situations. I think it may be best reading for adults. A really enjoyable story
