Northwest Passage

Northwest Passage by Kenneth Roberts, 4/5

This book took me completely by surprise.  I expected it to be a dry and boring account of some sort of exploration expedition.  It turned out to be an extremely well-written, engrossing historical fiction about the exploits of Robert Rogers, leader of Rogers’ Rangers, told through the eyes of artist Langdon Towne.  The novel is divided into two parts and I was disappointed to find that Book II did not demonstrate the same wit and unstrained style as Book I (if it had, I would have given the novel 5/5).
