Josephine J. (Goshen, CT) (11/27/09)

Excellent historical novel
Savage Lands is a beautifully written (almost poetic) story of the early days of Louisiana. Set in the early 1700s, we learn about the French settlers, their relation to the land and to the "savages" that they encounter, befriend, fight, and enslave. The two main characters, Elisabeth and Auguste are finely drawn, fully realized characters, based on real people. Anyone who likes historical fiction will be sure to be intrigued by this compelling story.
Shirley S. (Batavia, IL) (11/25/09)

Savage Lands
A vividly detailed historic perspective and beautifully written saga of early Louisiana. Though the story is predictable, the characters come alive through the enjoyable writing style. The intensely personal description of not only the people but the time and place make reading the detailed history a pleasure rather than a lesson.
Clark is dispassionate about the history revealing what happen to the territory, the natives and the settlers with equal voice.
