    " The San Angelo man, Elmer Kelton has done it again. Everything that he says about the West Texas terrain and range cattle of the harsh land is true. I know, I have lived there. From the double mountains to the Brazos River, and the rolling plains, I have been there and relate to it. "

    " A great western book. The story was engaging and the women are strong...stronger than I think I am. "

    " This was the first time I ventured away from Louis L'Amour westerns and was pleasantly surprised. Kelton's books are more historical novels set in the West as opposed to being Westerns. I really enjoy this one. "

    " I had never read a western before and thought it was about time to try them. The plot moved really well, and the characters, though not very complex, were extremely likable. It had more romance than I was expecting, which I liked. I may just have to read another one. "

    " I generally don't read westerns, so I was anticipating having to hold my nose while reading this, and it was very good! The plot was interesting, and i believe accurate for the time period, gave me a good sense of what life would have been likein the 1800's. "
