I was excited to read a book set in the Canadian NW during the reign of Victoria. It has an excellent mystery but gets bogged down in the details. In particular, the descriptions of the walk from town to the tribe settlement and the "translation" of conversations from English to Chinook and back. I doubt I will read any others by this author.
