It is a powerful story, but one that was a bit too graphic for me in some of the killing methods. Not a re-read for me. However, it is well-written, and Terry C Johnston is an author with a talent for telling an epic story.

Jonah Hook is a man who has lost everything he loved...his wife and children. He is determined to reclaim them all from the men who took them. The main story spans from 1868 - 1875 and is set on the western plains of America.

It is as hard a story to read as life must have bee
CONTENT WARNING - This book is offensive if you're conservative. Right off the bat, sodomy. Ick, ick, ick. Not for me.

Why'd I pick up this book? I've never read Westerns, so I picked a book at random. Maybe I shouldn't randomly select books.
I like my westerns but this was this whoa hold up wait a minute... WTF... Not one of the greatest and subject matter and is one those that I would tell anyone to bypass this book...
Terry johnston writes with a touch that takes you into the story.IT sometimes takes you breath away.
Probably a good book. I just couldn't get interested in it.

Terry C. Johnston was born January 1, 1947 in Arkansas City, KS.
Nineteen publishers rejected Johnston's first novel, Carry the Wind, before it was printed in 1982. However, this first novel was to gain the honor of receiving the Western Writers of America Medicine Pipe Bearer's Award for best first fiction. Johnston is known for his eye for historical detail, and he is a stickler for accuracy.
