    One thought on “The Wild Stallions (Sundance Western Book 7)

    1. Jeffrey Diehl on said:

      A satisfying Western yarn by Ben Haas (John Benteen). While the book featured one highly unlikely escape, and at times seemed a bit preachy in its favoring of Native American Indians over white settlers (which I guess is understandable given the premise of the series), overall the novel was a smooth and enjoyable read. Great characters and action! Recommended.
