    " I really learned a lot from this book. it is on the list of 25 best western westerns ever written. (And, I do like westerns.) it is about the time when the law came to the west. It is about strike and bad and good desisions and where they lead. it is about the people of the west and "Cowboying up." "

    " Based on a true story of a cowboy strike in the Panhandle of Texas in the 1880's. A very good story told by a great author. "

    " This is a different type of western. Who ever heard of cowboys striking? Somehow the story works and portrays the feel of truth. "

    " A very good book, a fictionalized tale of a true cowboy strike that occurred in the Canadian River section of Texas. Kelton is an excellent writer and his lead character is a man of great common sense who is reluctantly drawn into the strike. Recommended! "
