  • By A customer on April 13, 2000

    OK, Compton isn't Harry Combs or Larry McMurtry, and there's that stale and predictable romance between the hardbitten hero and the scrappy farm girl. But Compton does offer an authentic picture of a trail drive across a landscape easterners can only dream about, and the man knows his history. I was pleased to see that the savagery on both sides of the Commanche conflict was accurately depicted--no PC here, thank God. Compton's neither a stylist nor a plotting genius. He just tells a good story about interesting (if limited) characters living their lives in a fascinating time and place.

    The first in a series of trail drive books, Mr. Compton creates a vivid picture of those days following the civil war. This is a real "cowboys and Indians" book. Experience what it was like to drive cattle hundreds of miles so they could be sold.

    If you like westerns, then this series is for you. And this book should be read first in the series as it introduces characters that show up in later books. Charlie Goodnight plays only a small part in the story but other characters walk tall and are men to ride the river with.

    Compton really is as entertaining as Louis L'Amour. To readers of the Western Genre that is saying a heckuva lot pardner !And this is one of his better ones.

    I bought this for Christmas for my father and he read the whole book in one day and wants the next. If you like Louis L'Amour then this is the author for you.

    The last lines on pages in Chapters 11 through 13 were garbled or missing.. Reaing content was confusing, Very Good label was erroneous.

    Enjoyed this very much - Ralph Compton is great at taking facts about our history and creating fiction around them. Very enjoyable.

    Ralph Compton is one of the best Western writers. He writes backed up with historical research.
