This book really stepped outside the box of a typical "western." The Characters are perfectly developed, the plot is intricately thought through and weaves the complexities of both the era, characters and story twists and turns into a very enjoyable read. The plot keeps you wondering what is going to happen next and the characters don't disapoint. You almost feel like you are riding along with them thanks to the brilliantly illustrated setting. Great read!

The Mule Tamer takes the reader to a nearly forgotten time with impressive details of the era and compelling, multidimensional characters. Arvel Walsh is not your typical western hero/protagonist, his relationship with the lovely Mexican (simply known as Chica) is fascinating from start to finish.

I do not typically read "westerns" but I truly enjoyed this novel. The writing quickly pulls you into the lives of interesting characters with unique and interwoven fears, shortcomings, guts, and gifts. The imagery of both the characters and the land provide a historically aware, fast-paced, and entertaining escape to a wild time in the American west. The brutality, compassion, humor, and everyday struggles of Horst's characters are very real and quite memorable. I finished the book wanting to know what happens to these people next - I hope I won't have to wait too long to find out!

The book was written well with a few surprises. I enjoyed reading about the leading character in a situation when he wasn't the fastest gun in town but made up for that short-fall by using his vast experiences. But the part where he fell in love with a bandit woman was hard to figure. Over-all, the book was great and I plan to read the other two "Mule" books.

I enjoyed reading this offering from John Horst. This is the third book I've read of his and I like his style. It's realistic without getting too gory or sensual. The plot was believable and well developed. You will immediately come to appreciate the two principal characters as no nonsense men of their time. I am not a big fan of sensuality to the point of vulgarity in books and you don't find that here. It's all about action in southern Arizona in the late nineteenth century. Good read.

I read four or five boks a month. Historical fiction of all kinds. Quite a few westerns. Don't know when I've enjoyed a book more. I read this one and then read two and three. 5 stars too. Four awaits on my Kindle. Great stories. Great characters. Strong men. Strong women. Action. Bad bad guys. Satisfying. Fun.

I have already read Maria's Trail which is the story of Maria growing up, which leaves me with a better understanding of Maria at the beginning of this book. I still say she is psychotic.

The story line is fascinating, the variety of characters are well developed and the setting well researched. More blood and gore than most westerns I have read. Death and destruction seem to be the road that Maria rides with quick side trips to people she cares about on some level. Maria struggles with herself over what she really wants or needs from life. This is more that a western or a love story...it is an up close look into the mind of a warped personality. The harsh realities of the time period and how people dealt with their difficulties is portrayed with finesse.

Once again...I would have given 5 stars if the politics, religion and prejudices of the time period weren't so openly slanted toward a personal view.
