This was my first time reading a Johnstone book. I am somewhat of a "western" buff having grown up on Saturday matinees of: Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Lash Larue, Tim Holt, and the other short cowboy films where the good guy always wore the white hat.

The problem that I had with this book is its lack of realism. Having fired firearms for more than sixty years, I can attest to the fact that shooters do miss -- especially when they are being fired upon. In Johnstone's effort, the gunfighters simply ne

A Good Day to Die

Full of guts, glory and gory. Just wait for it. This is a book written for the cowboy in you. A book worth the price. You bow legged wanna be cowboys will enjoy the mayhem between the pages. So, "Giddy Up."

EXCELLENT

This book is NOTHING like the run of the mill 10 cent Western. It is a well crafted novel of ranchers, rancheros, Mexicans and others.
A GREAT READ!!!!

The second book in the series, again, as in the first book, a good story with problems. 441 pages of story, it had way too much filler. A minimum of fifty pages could have been cut and made it better. Page after page of torture by Comanche, covering every possible thing that could be done.

Unnecessary.

The author spends six pages "introducing us to a family about to be slaughtered, describing mother, father, so, and daughter, how they came to be there from where they come before the Comanche even

I continue to find more novels by this author to read. I haven't even reached the mid-way point, of reading all of them. I believe that I have many days of good reading ahead of me.
