Buffalo Dance is a work of fiction in the western, historical and action sub-genres, and was penned by author G. P. Hutchinson. Written as the third novel in the Cimarron Jack Westerns series, this adventure sees our titular character as one of America’s touring wild west stars. The novel takes an unusual premise for a western as Jack is tasked with guiding a European royal on an expedition to experience the true wild west. With Colonel Phil Gunnison along for the ride as security, conflicts soon arise within the party, and that’s before outside dangers also appear and put Jack’s royal guest in deep danger.
Author G. P. Hutchinson has crafted an immersive and exciting historical work that had layers of action, adventure, suspense, and mystery woven in. I loved the fact that the story took us away from typical tales of revenge and bad guys, but still kept plenty of realistic dangers for the novel’s cast to encounter as the story played out. The commitment to character development was really excellent, making me invested in characters even if I didn’t like their attitude, which only adds to the realism and atmosphere of the piece as a whole. The dialogue was also a standout feature, which rings true to classic westerns and characterizes the different people that we meet really well. It also moved the conflicts along between different characters, highlighting attitudes of the time. Overall, I would definitely recommend Buffalo Dance as a highly original and enjoyable western novel.
