    " Good Badger Boy/Andy Pickard western. In this one Andy, a Texas Ranger, must travel to the Rio Grande area to help stop the Mexicans and Texicans from battling with each other. What he experiences there changes his entire life. Recommended. "

    " The plot was a bit thin, repetitious and predictable; characters one-dimensional in too many cases; the landscape minimal and the dialog maximal (but decently written). Kelton has received numerous impressive awards, and since I didn't loathe Jericho's Road, I'll try another one. "

    " I'm not sure where I ran across this. I keep it in the car to read while I wait for Addie. It isn't bad but it won't be what he is remembered for. "

    " My first Western. I thought I would never read one, but had to for class. I was very pleasantly surprised. I'm not sure I'll run out and read more, but I enjoyed learning about the characters and the history surrounding this story. "
