This started off and finished off as an excellent Western. The real drag was the long, long discourse on Dakota politics. Yes, needed for the story, but if I wasn't listening to an audiobook, I would have drifted off. I listened to the audiobook by Richard Ferrone. He does an excellent job.

While at sea, I found this novel in the ship's library and enjoyed it. Matt Braun appears to include more historical detail and some real life historical characters and settings in his novels. Deadwood is the first Luke Starbuck novel I had read and I decided to read some more when I had the opportunity.
