Entertaining

This is the continuation of book one of the “Isoms Brothers.” The book starts right where the last book ended with Bob entering Rachel’s café in Abilene, Kansas after bring up a herd of cattle from Texas. He and Rachel are to be married. She and her mother and younger sister return to Texas with Bob to live at their new ranch.

As the story progresses, the ranch buys cattle and gather cattle from the thickets. The boys take herd after herd of cattle to Abilene. Frank gets married to Ellen and Jessie marries the Bannerman’s daughter. She inherits a huge ranch in Mexico from her maternal grand father.

The boys and families have lots of exciting adventures, some suspense, gun fights with cattle rustlers, but also humor and a view of ranch life in the late 1800s in Texas. Overall it is an excellent historical novel. Rhodes is an excellent story teller and writes books acceptable for the entire family. Gene Engene is a great narrator for western books.

The Isoms

This is one of the best books I have listened to since the longhorn series
The isoms brothers parents die and they set out on there on. They learn as they go. They stick together and look out for each other. There is a lot of life lessons to be learned from the isoms brothers. Every thing about this book is good. A good story line and the friends they meet along the way and the way they help the people that is in need. I don't want to spoil it for you so I'll just say this book is as good as they get. I highly recommend this book and series. Gene Engene is one of the best narrator's there is. If my review is any help will you please click on the helpful link below. Thank you

The Isoms brothers

This book is the second one in a series about the Isoms brothers. It's a very exciting western about their lives as they leave their home and head for Texas where they become town marshals. They later start the "Lone Star Cattle Company". Its a very good western with the gunfights that accompany most western books. As the story goes on the book deals with them getting married. The author, Dusty Rhodes, does a very excellent job at developing the story theme. If you are a fan of books written by Dusty Rhodes and a fan of the narrator Gene Engene than I recommend these two books.

Good story but predictable

Dusty Rhodes is a great writer and he's written many books but he used some of the same material from other books. I heard the waterfall before thanks Dusty.
