Format: Paperback
Ralph Compton does it again. A great novel about the West, as seen through the eyes of Dutch Siringo, and his tougher-than-leather teamsters. I have read all of Compton's books and consider his work to be among the best of the Western novelists. I was saddened to hear of his passing and regret that he is no longer alive to give us pleasure in book form as he has so many times done. "Adios, Pardner"

I read this book in '98. So I had to read the note I always put on the first page. It's my own little rating system. Included is the date and a short description. I gave this book a good, meaning a B if I was grading a school kids assignment. So I have just re-read a portion of the book. Compton does paint with his words and you will see the river, mts.,trees, people and story just as if you were there. His stories move along in grand fashion. You'll feel as if you are on the shipping wagons riding right thru a Sioux village. You might even feel the breeze as an arrow shot from a Sioux warriors' bow has just past by your ear. You will like Comptons' stories if you like the west and all it has to offer.

To begin; The first thing I look for in a book, is the Author; How accurate are the Fax's presented!
Then the content of the book, before Reading it, what is reason for my reading his,or her work.
As I personally am a student of history, I want it to be accurate, This I have found in the works of the Author- Ralph Compton, and this is a "Historical Fiction" piece of work presented here. Where the historical setting's are correct only the characters are fictitious.His work is what I call a Narration.If this is your goal, and you are looking for this sort of Reading, check out his work.
Also, I find honesty in reporting on condition of books purchased at-Amazon- What they say, is what you get!
I personally, have yet to be disappointed.

Thank, you:

Richard.
