Western, anyone? Oh yeah, this is my first!Not counting Annie Proloux’s short story, Brokeback Mountain, this is the first Western novel that I read from cover to cover. Western is the genre that I find the least interesting. I think the reason is that there are no cowboys here in Manila and horses are being used either to bring tourists around some historical sites or to race with other top breed horses for some kind of equestrian sport where the rich and famous bet and win a lot of money.Thi [...]

Good audio book to listen to on the trip to Gettysburg. This was Book I in the "Trail Drive Series." I'll have to try some of these stories in print and see if they read as good as Elmer Kelton. My favorite character was "Goose", a Lipan Apache scout saved by the drovers from the Comanche. He carries a big knife!

Got better as it went on but there was never any real sense of danger or anxiety. Sure there was a climactic point in the story, but no real "fear" that Bent wouldn't get out of it He's probably too awesome of a cowboy, literally nothing is too complicated or dangerous for him to get out of it.

Yet another action packed trail drive wester. However, I question Compton's use of language in some parts. What on earth is a ".53 caliber Schroeder" (p. 168) that is then refered to as a "needle gun" in any further mention? The only reference I can find to this is in this novel. If anyone else writing a review has an answer, I would love to know.

First real Western I have ever read, and it had its good and bad moments. Book's first half dragged, then picked up. The latter half of the book was better, but skipped around in time too much, losing its flow. Altogether, not a bad book.

This is one in a series of semi historical fiction about establishing the cattle drive trails. Everyone should read a cowboy story now and then

Probably the best western I've read in a couple of years. Reminds me of the stuff my Dad read 20 or more years ago. I hate to say it but it's a reverse love story.

you cant go wrong with a Ralph Compton book. His Cowboy's and Indians are always a good read.

Very good, but the abridged audio version made a few leaps that had me scratching my head a bit.

It was kind of sillyI thought. Louis L'Amour books are betterI think. It was the same thing (moving a herd of cattle) over and over.
