    " This was a lot of fun to read. I enjoyed not only how Elmer Kelton portrayed the cowboy point of view but also the way of speaking. I've gotten all my family to read it. Elmer Kelton did it again with this one. "

    " It's just a cowboy book, but boy, was it fun. The Calloway brothers join a cattle drive and get into various adventures. No attempt at great literature, but Kelton's writing is more than decent and his plot easy-going and absorbing. "

    " This first book of the Hewey Calloway series shows a typical cowboy and the Texas of 1889. Elmer Kelton truly paints a good picture of it. "
