As the sixth volume of the Kent Family Chronicles, The Warriors doesn’t lose any of the passion and action of the preceding five books. One of the great things about this series (in my opinion) is that it is difficult to say that one was so much superior to another. The books relate the times in which they were written and history unfolds in all of its glory. The Warriors is set in a continuation of the Civil War and its aftermath. The horrors inflicted upon the civilian population in Georgia and South Carolina by Sherman’s infamous “March to the Sea” is vividly portrayed. As the United States licks its wounds and reconstruction begins, the movement west again gains momentum and the country grows once more with the Kent families playing a vital role. The seemingly impossible task of constructing a transcendental railroad is explored and serves as a tribute to immigrant Americans.The saga continues in a well written, interesting and colorful book. I have now re-read this book thirty years after my first read and have now given it another star. I can only attribute it to my age as that is the only thing that has changed in all those years as the book has stayed the same. Re-reads, especially after a long period of time often offer the reader another insight. I would still recommend this book (and in fact the whole series) to everyone that loves a great story and a gripping read.
