Chapter 30 ready.

He introduced a new character. A trapper. But, he seems to have given him the same name as Ned Harding. He only refers to the trapper as Harding. Not sure why he used the same name??? However, I used the mountain man/trapper accent for him and the English/Scottish accent for Ned.

It threw me for a loop several times. Or, my reading comprehension is shot and I have no idea what the hell he's talking about???. :oops:

I'll post the summary soon.

Summary;

Best described as a fictional autobiography, Clark Johnson authored the following adventure to promote the sale of his brand of Homeopathic elixir or commonly known as "Snake Oil".

Using the fictitious hero's of Edwin Eastman and his wife, Mr. Johnson penned a hair raising tale of a pioneer family wondering off the wagon trail and straight into the heart of hostile Indian country. All but Eastman and his wife were struck down in the ensuing battle. Captured, Edwin and Mrs. Eastman survived only to be imprisoned by the Comanche Nation, with Mrs. Eastman eventually being sold to the Apache's. Edwin lives among the Comanches for seven long and torturous years.

Demonstrating courage and tenacity, Edwin was taken in by the great medicine Chief Watkometkla. Allowed to live, Mr. Eastman gained valuable knowledge in the art of Homeopathic medicine and the Comanche way of life.

Through the adventure of his captivity Mr. Johnson describes Edwin's life in detail - the Native American culture, the rise of new leaders, the preparation for war, scenes of great battles, habits, lifestyle and so on. Unfortunately, the author's knowledge of these various traits were "borrowed" from a previous novel published in 1854 and written by T.D. Bonner titled "The Life and Adventures of James P. Beckworth".

Eventually escaping, Mr. Eastman made his way to Santa Fe, New Mexico. There he met with Ned Harding and started his two year adventure as a miner. Finally discovering new information about his wife, he and several members of his mining camp set forth to rescue her from the deadly Apache Nation.

Successful, the hero and heroine are reunited after nine long years. Quickly traveling back to the East and settling into their private lives.

Chapter 30 is PL OK, Claude. You are amazing with the accents! Love that Scottish stretch. :thumbs:

That's a fantastic summary for the book, by the way.

I thoroughly enjoyed PL'ing for you. Feel free to PM me if you're looking for a DPL in the future.

Thank you, Lynette. I very much appreciate all your work in completing this book, as well as your kind words.

Just to clarify;

So, I'm not crazy in thinking he used the same name for two different characters? It's been driving me insane.
