Critic Reviews

"This is arguably the best ongoing western series in the genre today. It shouldn't be missed." (Booklist)
"Once again, Kelton offers an exciting tale in which the bad guys are really bad and some of the good guys are, too. His characters are sharply defined, the historical background is vivid, and the gunplay can't be beat." (Publishers Weekly

good read

This book is well written in true Elmer Kelton fashon. It mooved well and spoke to the ways of the day. Many might find it to be racially insensitive, but for the time depicted it is true to form. I reccomend this book to anyone interested in the Rangers and the time period after the Alamo.

A Fun Western Read

I purchased this a long time ago, but when I started it I could not follow the story. All I can think of is that I must not have been paying attention, because when I listened this time it was a clear, well read Western with a great story line.

The characters are well developed, the plot is fast moving. I highly recommend this book.
