My new obsession:
I really love the Into the Wilderness series. It is a sequel to The Last of the Mohicans. Now, many people don't enjoy Cooper. I can deal with him because I am used to description in my reading.
This series of books maintains the allure of that world but has beautiful description and lots of dialogue....very good dialogue, I might add. More on it once I finish (and that could be a while because it is long and I am working on a dissertation...or should be).
