The editorial summary provided gave a fair overview of the story. The author has created an easy to read and entertaining Western. Interestingly, the key characters are neither all good nor all bad. The story line was thought out well and developed nicely. The writing itself was quite good. There are some editing and proofing issues, but they do not detract from the telling of a good story. In my opinion, this book well deserves 4 stars.

I didn't quite know what to expect from the book, coming from a local author and all . . . but I was pleasantly surprised. It is well-written and has quite a bit of very unique descriptions. The plot was interesting and the characters seemed real, constantly being described throughout the story so that you learned more about them as a person each time you encountered them in the story. I never would have said I am a fan of westerns - movies or books - but this was exciting and kept my interest throughout. I am looking forward to reading the next in the series to find out more about this tantalizing, uncharted desert and the adventures in the wild west !

If it is true that if we do not learn from our history, we are bound to repeat it, then it is important not to disregard the pioneering history of this country as something quaint or irrelevant that happened in a long ago, distant past. In some regards, the civil war and its aftermath still carries some deep resonances right up to the present day.

Having said that, this is an entertaining story in the western genre that manages to work on many different levels, all the while being an action-loaded, fast-paced read that nicely epitomizes the genre. As there was no TV, press or internet in that era, what passed for reliable information between people was actually rumor and hearsay, which, depending on who was the source of such rumor and what their agenda was in spreading it, the communication of such could cause lives to be endangered, feuds to be created and battles to be fought.

Such is the case here in this story, where one piece of misinformation leads to innocent men being hunted down, posses formed, gunslingers hired to kill, others seeking revenge and building up to a point where many people are affected over a ten year period until many deaths and wasted lives later, some justice is found and the truth finally gets to see some light. All because of one incorrect and unsubstantiated rumor.

Yes, rumor and hearsay is still strong is this modern age but thankfully nobody gets hunted down and chased across open and dangerous wilderness and mercilessly gunned down because of it. Let us not forget the past...

I hear the wild, wild west music queuing in the background. Well developed characters that you want to know more about. Tight plot and excellent descriptions that pull you into the time and place. It's an adventurous ride that you will surely enjoy!

A suspense filled novel on the lives of a band of post war raiders from the south as they pursue one of their own. A great read with a very different end! A Great Read!

This story weaves of days when men were men and honor was the weight a man carried. Of two brothers, of love and enough twists & turns to keep you turning the pages to the end. I would highly recommend this book!
