This entry in The Last Mountain Man series has a fine story, great characters and some lousy construction. Considering earlier entries in the series, this was a further drop off.

Parts of this books are very well written and then there are the pages of extraneous pages of conversation and description that seem to be tacked on. Extra pages that include misspellings. All adding up to an editor that was asleep at the wheel of this Johnstone Clan novel.

It's really a shame, in that otherwise there is

Matt Jensen comes to the aid of an old friend from their orphanage days. She married well, an older man, and inherited the ranch when he died. Her late husband's stepson tried an end run in the courts and lost, so hired a small private army to make sure she defaulted on her loan, which he'd bought from the bank.

Loved it!!!

I am a Westerner at heart, this is why I try to read all of William Johnston's books. The characters are lively, spirited, and humorous. I find Preacher, Smoke, Matt, and Duff some of the best men that the West had to offer us as readers. You will never be disappointed, I would recommended these series of books to everyone who wishes they had lived while the Western states were being "Tamed!"

A bit of a slow mover in large spots, this could have been lots shorter and tighter for a more enjoyable ride. Not as enjoyable as the Smoke Jenson series.
