Recommended to Rosemary by: from the San Antonio library
From the lives of real people, this sixth book of Kelton's series on the Texas Rangers keeps you turning pages. He has earned his countless honors and seven Spur Awards from Western Writers of America. He is truly great.
His books are not about gunplay, but have the right blend of action, drama, romance, humor and suspense.

The plot was a bit thin, repetitious and predictable; characters one-dimensional in too many cases; the landscape minimal and the dialog maximal (but decently written). Kelton has received numerous impressive awards, and since I didn't loathe Jericho's Road, I'll try another one.

Good Badger Boy/Andy Pickard western. In this one Andy, a Texas Ranger, must travel to the Rio Grande area to help stop the Mexicans and Texicans from battling with each other. What he experiences there changes his entire life. Recommended.

My first Western. I thought I would never read one, but had to for class. I was very pleasantly surprised. I'm not sure I'll run out and read more, but I enjoyed learning about the characters and the history surrounding this story.

I'm not sure where I ran across this. I keep it in the car to read while I wait for Addie. It isn't bad but it won't be what he is remembered for.
This is a great Western if you're into that sort of thing.
