Book Review: Collision of Dreams by George Dalton
Collision of Dreams is a western set in the 1800s. The book's hero, Sam, begins the story by saving a woman from being manhandled in town by a member of ruthless killers. Sam falls instantly in love. He finds out her name Mattie Ann Carville and gets offered a job to work for her dad on his ranch. Sam eventually ventures out, acquiring his own land with plans of building a cattle ranch and marrying Mattie Ann. He meets many friends and some enemies who try to kill him. His bravery and common sense always find a way out.
Throughout the book, many adventures happen to Sam, his true love, and the other characters he encounters. I won't spoil the ending, but it's a happy one.
My Review: I never read a western before and decided to give it a try. I met George in a book store while he was doing a book signing. He looked like someone who knew a thing or two of the wild west. I, on the other hand, pretty much knew nothing. After reading the book, I learned a little bit about Indians, warpaths, breaking horses, and raising and branding cattle. I enjoyed his dialect for different characters and loved the western style of talking (he kilt a man, is a fixin, etc.). The story moved along at a nice pace and it was clear and easy to read. George knew when to insert history into the story. I recommend it to anyone who likes westerns or is willing to give them a try. Great book! 5/5 Stars.
