**** Very Entertaining... I find this book to be very entertaining and full of action. It is also different! I enjoyed the Western style composure of this book and there is no dull moment. It keeps you in suspense! I plan to recommend it to my friends because I enjoyed it. ·· Tamarah
***** A good read with characters you like. I'd recommend it. ·· W.R. Masters
**** I most enjoyed the fast paced, action driven storyline and the tongue-in-cheek banter between Merle and Hawk (and between Hawk and the judge that put him through college). Besides that, I got a kick out of Merle's nemesis, a certain shoulder cannon with, well, a kick. In summary, Educated Injun is action-packed, funny, clever, and entertaining. ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads
