That said, this is a great Western saga, and may give the best portrayal of characters who lived during the post civil war era in Texas. I will re-read it, which means this is a great book. I highly recommend the audible version. Lee Horseley is superb.
My only problem with this book and all American westerns is the negative light attributed to most Native American Indians during this period.
I highly recommend fans of the epic western also read "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" by Dee Brown who deftly tells a story we were never supposed to hear. It's tragic, it's the truth and we owe a debt to tell and retell the story of their lives and their typically beautiful culture, which the American government betrayed time and again.
Of course, the characters portrayed here are complex as all humans are -- I do not mean to purport that there were no sociopaths among the natives.
Despite that huge disparity, I am indebted to this author for taking me on the trip of a lifetime.
