The story line is convoluted the characters are hard to keep track of and are not fully realized the subject matter the war between the English and the French using Indians as warrior allies against each other and Scots convicts as indentured soldiers is depressing The Indian raids in which small English children are stolen and used as slaves or adopted into Indian culture is unspeakable The destruction of the Indian nations is eually unspeakable As are the English crimes against the Scots I find these subjects something that I really just don t want to delve into in a fictional account which is somewhat poorly written I would rather read historical accounts and try to come to emotional terms with the things that happened in those times by learning the truthIn previous reading I had noticed that uite often when an Indian woman was married outside the tribe in the 19th century it was to a Scotsman I had not known why this might be so and it seemed incongruous Now I understand how and why those marriages might have taken placeMy favorite line in this book is When I first came I met an old Indian named Conawago I said this is Eden In reply he said Yes except it is the eighteenth century

This guy can really write That said this novel was not an easy read The language was unfamiliar the ideas even so There was too much taken for granted which left me out in the beginning I had to look up words re read passages go back to figure out who certain people were again etc This made it slow if not tedious But I was curiouswhat the heck happened here This made reading the book challenging to say the least There was no denying the darkness of the tale was compelling the texture and sense of time and place was captivating The story became less murky as the author untangled it bit by bit and in the end there is finally some light and dappled shadow This book introduced me to some American pre revolutionary history to which I d never been exposed and gave me a hint of the culture of early native Americans peoples who faced their own doom at the beginning of the anglo American story I became involved regardless of how difficult the beginning was in the end I felt enlightened about some of the lesser known complications of historical events I cared about the protagonists and for the unknown real people who lived through those early times As an American descendent of Scots who settled in America during this earliest period this story spoke to me in surprising ways It was eye opening frightening saddening infuriating riveting When I finished this book after 2 months of working my way through it slowly I moved to Mr Pattison s earlier book The Skull Mantra and found againa mystery that I have to have solved and a story that is hard to understand for its unfamiliarity Is all this effort worth it I don t care The stories are gripping and that is plenty

When one man decides to help his family he is penalized uite harshly Even though he studied to become a doctor he would never see the light of day to complete his schooling Because of his actions in trying to hide a family member from harm Duncan McCallum a High Scot is placed in a prison beaten at times that his skin is rare and then sent on a voyage to Colonial America as an Indentured Servant to the Ramsey Company But there is much to tell before this as many of his comrades or fellow prisoners die along the way from what appears to be suicides but are they really Many appear to be jumping overboard others fall prey to some strange illness and all succumb to something eventually as the brutal treatment they receive is graphically described by outstanding author Eliott Paterson in his novel Bone Rattlers the first in the Duncan McCallum mystery series Before a close friend dies he placed a black stone in Duncan s hand As things progressed on the ship he realized that something odd was happening The Captain reuested that he tell the crew that nothing bad happened to those that died and that they had nothing to fear But strange visions entered his mind he saw a woman s ghostly figure the faces of those who died and Duncan felt himself dragged overboard was it all a nightmare or what was really happening to him One of the keepers on the boat Lister discussed his past his reason for being imprisoned and made his promise to uphold the right of his clan as the new head Watching the tutor to the Ramsey children murdered on board this horrific ship Duncan has not choice but to fill the position after receiving this black stone from his friend Adam with strange engravings and carvings on it as a warning from the tutor from the beyond in the form of cryptic messages Before landing in the New World Duncan and one of the keepers Lister recount their pasts when their lives were better in order to survive the horrors that would come Seeing an unknown woman in white in his dreams fearing that he has been thrown overboard and then experiencing the initial ceremony of being the highest in his clan in his cell really brings to light the atrocities faced by many prisoners the indignities of the time and the fact that he was wrongly accused as well as so many others without the right to speak out and defend themselves Dictatorships were present even in Colonial Times and the true colors of this Ramsey Company will startle the reader and give you an inside picture of what went on even back then Many people in charge want to control the words and actions of those they feel are their subjects Pitting different groups against each other is what Lord Ramsey has in mind as I continue my review of bestselling author Eiott Patterson s novel Bone Rattler Duncan has to make the ultimate decision that would decide his fate Realizing that Professor Evering was murdered and convincing those in charge of the fact he is presented with an alternative to serving hard labor Seven years as an indentured servant and tutor to the Lord s children plus giving lessons to others on the weekend The Vicar and Arnold present him with the documents that would free him from the Captain s wrath but he would have to investigate the murder and bring them the killer Duncan wants no part of being an informer so the decision will not come uickly and his answer will depend on what else they expect from himFrom the start the author grabs the reader and holds hisher interest as you learn about the past build in ideas for the present and learn about about both France and England their relationship with the Indians and how they interacted with the Huron and Irouois tribes All Duncan is guilty of is helping an older relative A conscripted Scots Highlander trying to honor his heritage Duncan is a physician and political renegade Can he solve the murder aboard the ship At times you can smell the dank and putrid air on the ship feel the lashes as they are inflicted on the prisoners and understand the hate the flows within the veins of the prisoners most of whom are wrongly incarcerated The life of one man is described as he tries to find the answers to a murder and hope for his future One group trying to take over and rule the land and the people any way they can regardless of cost and others trying to remain true to their ways and the past What will happen The ritual in the compass room defines the entire outcome The objects found center around a murder not a suicide What Evering planned never came to pass Gathered the objects 2 sets of bones 2 deaths his and his wives The eye of the shark stands for evil and the claw the agony and pain that he felt The feather tells of meeting his wife in heaven and the salt purification and the metal or buckle to fight the demons As the author through Duncan explains that Evering did not complete the ritual another did Two separate worlds and two separate halves The objects held within them the truth The compass room the tobacco leaves that burned signifying the People of the Forest and contacting his wife in the hereafter As Duncan is placed in his cell with uill and paper he does not begin transcribing the letters but creates his own family tree of his clan Adam Munroe was killed for a reason and so much Evering Adam placed himself in slavery why What is the significance of the black stone and what did his final words to him mean The book is replete with history relating to the forest lore of the Indians and the ancient lore of the Scottish Highlanders whose pasts connect yet are so opposite and different The past has its secrets and values and the New World does too Human cargo History and the anthropology of the Indians and the believes run high throughout the novel Entering the New World should have been a better experience for Duncan Learning the truth behind his release from the prison was enlightening and disheartening Finding out the connection between Evering and one of the Ramsey children started a chain of events that would change what he set out to do One Major named Pike who was out for revenge against him but was it Duncan he was really after After all he endured he realized that he could endure the years of indenture if the end result would change things in his life and others close to him The war is fought to restrain the Indians in the forest Truths behind the actions of one Ramsey child revealed There are many different factions featured in this novel The French and the English are at odds and their beliefs so different Each of the races vying to rule and many using cruel and inhumane ways to take control for the King and some who believe that the colonies belong to them The links begin to form as he encounters many who would
