Format: Paperback
Kumiko, in Japan, reads a lot of my writing. Here's what she sent me about Big Enough.

I like everything.
The life of Kid is totally different from my life.
Everything is new to me.
I'm interested in her life. I loved to know how she got along with the black filly.
But the reason I love your stories is the same all the time.
I love the characters you wrote.
I love Kid, I love the man of iron.:)
So I'd like to read more and more and want to know what will happen next.

Kumiko

Format: Paperback
Western writer Chuck Tyrell has a new collection of stories--mostly fiction, some nonfiction. They are an entertaining mix of genres, ranging from traditional and historical westerns to noir and memoir, plus excerpts from two novels. If you've read about the Old West and Charles' home state, Arizona, you quickly sense the historical grounding of his stories, and you know you're in good hands. Compared to the writing of those who know the West only from other western novels and the movies, he gives you two or three more layers of detail. You might call it "high definition."

The title story is about a horse and the young rider patiently gentling it, until strangers arrive who happen to be a step or two ahead of the law. Tyrell's men may be good with a gun, but they prove their mettle in other ways, too. In "Man of Iron," the narrator discovers that he has shot an Apache woman with a newborn child. Never mind that she's tried to kill him herself. He makes a superhuman effort to return her to her tribe. A Japanese man schooled in centuries-old martial arts has come West to avenge the death of his father in "Kataki." He finds his way into the fiercely defended stronghold of a desperado in Mexico and doesn't need a gun at all.

Meanwhile, Tyrell has a special way with lawmen. They step off the page with well-defined features and temperament. In "The Kid and the Commodore," the historic lawman Commodore Perry Owens offers an absorbing portrayal of the man who played a key role in the Pleasant Valley range war during the 1880s in Arizona. Tyrell's Marshal Havelock, notably in the collection's excerpt from the novel VULTURE GOLD, is a clear-thinking man of action. He gets the job done, even with the help of those who question his authority because of his mixed race. Just watch how he calmly manages a posse while in pursuit of two robbers of gold bullion. Excellent reading, not just for the western fan.

Chuck Tyrell is a consummate storyteller that ropes you into well-plotted short stories that are on par with the best of Louis L'Amour and Elmer Kelton. Read BIG ENOUGH and be entertained.
