The writing style is casual with dialogue that adds to the storyline without just being a lot of words to fill up the space, and the author does a good job of building up his main character and having you visualize the scenes and people he comes across throughout the story. I picked this up for just 99 cents in the Kindle store and certainly received more than 99 cents worth of entertainment value out of it: I’m looking forward to reading more from Mr. Vaughan.
If I take as authentic the general gist and mentions of historical occasions - I applaud the author's research.
The beginning indicates that it will be the story of how a cattle baron got to be where he was - but the story wanders through a range of improbable situations to have happened to one person in the same time period but then stops before getting to the crux of the matter .... apparently there's a follow-up book to explain WHAT / HOW that happened.
The general storyline reads OK but much of the dialogue comes across as rather awkward and stilted.
STILL - for what there was of it ---- a good read!
I'm glad I’ve decided to give this one a try as this book is truly a delight for western enthusiasts!
This author has done valid research and presented history in the form of good fiction. Many readers may find this book somewhat trite, I offer my opinion that many author's have studied the history of the West and that history has become part of the fabric of our society.
Conflict is the basis of all literature. Weather good against evil, man against nature, father or mother against son or daughter, it is the job of a good author to form conflict into an interesting story. Mr. Vaughn never disappoints.

No fancy gunslingers here but old fashioned grit and decency.
A solid story of the drive to open up the old west with the hardships and good times in equal measure.
Looking forward to the next episode.
Says it all, really. Read it - I don't believe you'll be disappointed.
