When he was 17 Nate strikes out on his own & eventually hires on with John Duckette's K Bar ranch. His goal is to have a ranch of his own so after saving his pay & learning everything he possibly can, Nate is ready to begin his dream & along with two cousins, Tom & William. He buys 1,000 head of cattle to start & purchases land in Clearwater Springs at the base of the Ochoco Mountains. His fight to win himself a place in the west will be hard & bought with blood & sacrifice.
With this book, Carson McCloud has placed himself on my watchlist for exceptional writers & I look forward to more westerns in the future with his name on them. This is cleanly written with characters that are both believable & in some instances both lovable & hateable but then...that's what a good western is all about. You know...good guys & bad guys. I recommend.
#Write about what you know.
He also did well with the second rule.
#Use the language properly.
There were few instances where he chose incorrect words, but in my experience many times those errors may have been the fault of the software. Many of the misspelled words could have been caused by the software choosing the wrong word because of the similarity of the words sound. This type of error is difficult to find by the human editor for the same reason. He or she is going at a rapid pace and confuses the sound for the correct spelling. Better editing could solve this problem. The third rule of good writing:
#Spelling, punctuation and word usage must be absolutely correct.
The last rule,
#The story must be told using the fewest possible words.
This rule was scaracely violated.
