Présentation de l'éditeur

Cold River Running, book 3 in the Cold River Series, is available for pre-order.

About Cold River Rising - If you love thrillers, don't miss this action-filled journey on a modern day Indian reservation, with scenes in South America, the U.S. Senate, and the White House. Thriller and crime writer Ann Rule said, "Smith is a writer on his way straight up."
While on spring break from college, Native American Tara Eagle is kidnapped in Peru. With no help from the Unites States government, Tara and her college friends, Indian kids from tribes around the country, struggle to stay alive.
On the Cold River Indian Reservation in Oregon, the new Siyapu (white man) police chief, Martin Andrews, is struggling to understand the people and the culture he has been thrust into. Tara's grandfather, Tribal Council Chairman Bluefeathers, asks Martin to lead a group to Peru and rescue his granddaughter.
Bluefeathers flies to Washington, D.C. and gives an impassioned speech to a senate subcommittee. He said, "You see some of us as a weak people . . . but before your numbers and your diseases and your promises overwhelmed us . . . we were warriors. Watch us. We are warriors once again. We are the people."
Martin and a group of Indians fly to Peru on a perilous journey in an attempt to rescue the students. In Peru, Tara, who has adopted the white ways in college, realizes that she must remember the traditional ways her grandmother taught her, in order to survive.
As forces converge on the reservation to take it over, Bluefeathers gives the order to blow the bridges, isolating the reservation. They are a people under siege as the struggle in South America continues. The Cold River Indian Reservation is joined by other Indian tribes in a show of force and solidarity.
Cold River Rising - and story of courage, redemption, sacrifice, death, honor, and of a people coming together.
Cold River Rising has been a #1 Amazon best seller in two categories, and has over 280 five star reviews.
Author Enes Smith has been a panelist with Michael Connelly at The Bouchercon, the World Mystery Writers Conference. He has been a homicide detective, a SWAT commander, and on two different occasions, a tribal police chief. His first novel, Fatal Flowers, was published worldwide by Putnam/Berkley.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not bad, grammar is a problem 21 décembre 2012
Par lcarpenter16 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
This book isn't bad, premise-wise. It's realistic and and plausible enough that you can really get into what's going on. The fact that someone is turned away from the U.S. Embassy in Peru might seem unreal, until you consider that Native Americans don't usually have the stereotypical blonde hair-blue eyed American look that the average Marine is going to be expecting. However, there are definitely some grammar issues (particularly between its and it's, which is kind of cardinal rule #1 for anyone who's ever taken a single grammar class), and it's not as clean as I would expect a published book to be.

As for accuracy, there is a disclaimer at the beginning from Smith, acknowledging that as a white man, he may have made some mistakes in Native customs. This is smart, because I saw several. I'm an enrolled member of a Native tribe, and if he had had just one of us read this before publication, he could have been informed of some awkward errors. Particularly, in the book, an elder gives the white police chief an eagle feather. That is a federal violation. Anyone who is not an enrolled tribal member of a federally-recognized tribe can be fined and jailed for being in possession of an eagle feather, as eagles are predatory birds protected by federal law.

However, if one suspends the reality of cultural descriptions and ignores grammar issues, the book itself is interesting. It was basically worth the $4.99 I paid for the Kindle edition, and I'll probably consider getting the next book as well. I'm interested in the movie more, but the book is an engaging read. Enes Smith should have definitely had a few more people read this before publishing it on his own though.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A terrific thriller 6 mai 2011
Par Patroo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I was delighted with this book, being familiar with the reservation, and knew the locations described. The story premise is based directly on the declaration of sovereignty published on the tribal website. The gist of it is that this tribal coalition was never defeated in war, but instead worked primarily as partners with the white man, and executed a treaty as an equal, not a subservient victim. The reservations in many areas are independently administrated, and you are a guest in their country when you are there.

Smith starts his story with a group of students traveling to Peru over spring break. The students find themselves in the midst of Shining Path guerrilla activity and are taken prisoner. Their professor is shot almost immediately after they're imprisoned, and they realize that same fate awaits them. Several of the students are tribal members of the Yakama and the fictional Cold River reservation tribes, and when word gets out that they've been taken, tribal leadership at home takes action.

One Yakama student manages to elude capture and makes his way to the nearest U.S. embassy, only to be rejected for lack of any identification, and literally thrown back into the hands of the guerrillas and a corrupt army, a lamb for the slaughter.

While the Peruvians claim the students were engaged in terrorism, their military and the Shining Path are exploiting their own country for profit. They have no interest in seeing anyone escape who might bring down the regime.

The tribal chairman in Cold River declares war on Peru as the act of an independent nation, and things begin hitting the fan. While no one takes the declaration seriously, except for other tribes that declare their support, the diplomatic implications are serious, and the Establishment begins trying to smooth things over. At home on the res, the tribal council begins preparing to blockade the roads, move money and get together the talent needed to execute a rescue. The native nations have been maintaining their warrior traditions through the U.S. military for generations, and now they begin assembling their own force. They need a pilot, people with demolitions experience, and other skills.

Using clever language and negotiating skills, the tribes invite a senator to visit and become their spokesman, smoothing over what's already happened and unwittingly pumping out disinformation to the Establishment. An FBI man is out of contact, and the Establishment decides that the tribes have imprisoned or killed this man as part of their actions. The FBI gets ready to go Waco on them, and a tribal member calls the council to tell them that he's just seen a column of tanks, trucks, and what-have-you headed over the mountain to the reservation. The bridges have already been wired, and when it's determined that this column is on the way to the res, the bridges are taken out on both sides of the res.

The captured students have managed to escape their captors, but they've taken more casualties in the process, and they're struggling to get to the nearest city while eluding the Shining Path and the army. One young man sacrifices himself in a solo attack so that the other students can get past a roadblock and into town. The chairman's granddaughter calls home and gives their location.

The telephone operator has eavesdropped, and immediately contacts the military. The students are already on the move again, headed for the local small airport. One man has some flight experience, and he plans to get a plane and fly them out to a larger airport, where they can get help...but not from the Peruvians.

Meanwhile, just to keep things interesting, Ecuador has declared war on Peru and provided a distraction.

The loose ends all get wrapped up in a thrilling ending. Buy the book to see how it all shakes out. This book reminds me of Leonard Wibberley's "The Mouse that Roared" and Clair Huffaker's "Flap," the movie version of his "Nobody Loves a Drunken Indian."

There are some editing issues - the people editing this book aren't completely clear on the distinction between its and it's, they're and their, and when to capitalize commercial product names. A word or two eluded spell checking, and there are a couple of minor formatting issues - extra spaces, empty lines, and one page with a paragraph of bold type. I can only imagine what the manuscript was like originally - it's at about 90% correct now, and should be at 99% minimum.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cold River Rising by Enes Smith 4 août 2008
Par Mary A. Fairchild - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book was one I did not want to put down. I live near the area where the story begins-Oregon and what I could imagine was the Warm Springs Reservation. It was so very nice to read about American Indians in such a positive way. This story is the opposite of his "Fatal Flowers" which was excellent. I am looking forward to more books by Mr. Smith.

Cold River Rising really pulled me. There were times during reading this story that I had to remind myself to breath. Enes Smith built his characters in such a way that I felt I knew each and every one of them on a personal level. Thank you for sharing your wonderful gift of words with me, Enes!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 What a ride 23 mai 2014
Par jimslaffingirl - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This was not a predictable book for me, which definitely won points in my book. it has a high body count. I didn't give this five stars because so much attention was paid to the action portion of the book that a lot of the character development was sacrificed for that. But my guess is you will still enjoy it!
