Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A wonderful Historical Fiction novel written from the heart. 25 de agosto de 2013
Por R.M. Prioleau - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
I was really excited to read this book upon its release from a debut author, and I must say, it was an amazing read that I couldn't put down.

The story starts out slow-paced up until chapter 7, as much of it is backstory and engrossing the reader of the day-to-day life of Nikaia and her family, as well as the lives of other people in the town of Fort Yale, B.C. where much of the story takes place. Not much really going on pacing-wise, but the author does a great job in going into details about what life was like for people of various races and creeds during the 1860s Gold Rush era.

After chapter 8, however, the story's pacing immediately quickens and things begin to fall in place. Nikaia, a 16 year-old girl, is on a mission to save her family, and attempt to clear her father's name from a serious crime. She ends up finding help in some unlikeliest of places as a result. The story becomes an instant page-turner with action, mystery, some heart-wrenching moments, and even a bit of love. My only complaint about the story was Nikaia's younger sister, Klima. It was difficult to determine her age because sometimes she acts older like a teen (such as handling a boat by herself), and most times she acts like a small child (such as asking a bunch of trivial questions to adults). Whereas Nikaia maintained the same maturity level as a 16 year-old throughout the book.

'Stone & Silt' reads a lot like a cozy mystery, and the author does a great job in dropping a few hints here and there which builds up for the end as you try to guess 'whodunit'.

The author presents some great imagery of the Fraser Canyon during the Gold Rush years as Nikaia's family travels to and from Fort Yale to Lytton. We also learn a lot about the First Nations people (or 'Native Indians' as the author refers in the book) and their rich customs.

'Stone & Silt' is a story for all ages that also leaves behind a great message of the importance and value of family. This story was written from the author's heart, and it shows.

Stone and Silt is the kind of book I didn't want to stop reading, and one which I missed once through reading. Mr. Chute obviously did thorough research of the history of the place and time. His craft of storytelling left me anxious to continue reading, always wondering where the journey of the characters would lead. Stone and Silt is a book suitable for any audience. It was an unforgettable story, told with a beautiful voice.

Well constructed story line and characters. My first exposure to the Canada's First Nations and their interactions with Western culture in the late 1800's. Enjoyed the cultural interactions of the young adult characters while being treated to a well told mystery in a unique geographic and historical setting. Would highly recommend this to any young adult on your holiday gift list!
Looking forward to Mr. Chute's next effort.

This is a delightful book by a gifted writer. When I first started reading, I found the detailed descriptions a little concerning since I usually am turned off by overly wordy descriptive paragraphs. As I continued I found that I actually enjoyed the writing style and the descriptions added considerably to the story. Well done.

I did not enjoy reading during school or choose reading as a leisure activity. That is, until my 5th grade teacher selected the book Caddie Woodlawn for read-aloud time. I was hooked on the spunky, tomboy character and the many risks she took exploring the Wisconsin frontier and interacting with people during her pioneer childhood. It was the first book I willingly read from cover to cover. Mr. Chute's novel evoked the same feelings in me. I am hoping many others will be as compelled to read this story as I was. The book trailer is well done and a good way to preview this book.

The murder mystery plot was exciting, dangerous, and stressful to read. There were many twists and turns on the way to the resolution. Nikaia, Klima, and Yee Sim were very resourceful and clever. But, my favorite parts were the everyday background details and the interactions between Nikaia's family and friends. I loved the way the consequences of Nikaia's choices led to her father giving her the nickname Mischief. Her relationships with her family, friends, and community were authentic. Mr. Chute's vivid descriptions of Fort Yale, British Columbia, and the Fraser River brought them to life and made them seem like a "real" character. The telling of Nikaia's mountain quest, the Anybody Boat, Charlie Ray's trap line experience, Annie Adams' basket weaving, and other stories brought realism to the book by teaching meaningful lessons to characters, and providing insight into the culture of the First Nations people and pioneer life during the gold rush. I also enjoyed the tentative, developing feelings between Nakaia and Yee Sim. I was glad to read in an interview that there are plans for a follow-up novel with many of the same characters.

Mr. Chute states in his author's note, "This story is my homage, my love letter, to the people of the Fraser Canyon, past and present." That's how reading Stone and Silt felt to me.
