I am just pages from finishing “The Crimson Tapestry” by Michael R. Joens. Despite the plethora of weighty words, I have enjoyed this tale. Lots of history about the Scots, Picts, and Scotti ancient tribes in Britain and Ireland which are a part of my distant ancestry. When reading in first grade history about the ancient Picts fighting the Romans all fierce and naked and tattoed blue, my oldest boy was somewhat alarmed to discover that we are more likely related to the savage Picts than the …uh…civilized? Romans. How cool does that get? But he did not quite see it that way. Ah well, to each his own. Anyway, historical tidbits were abundant and I enjoyed every one. Hopefully I can finish and start the next book , I have to find out if the wolf dude gets them and what happens with the scourge of deadly cave dwellers that are rushing down upon our heroes best friend! Oh, and the bear! I love the bear.
