really liked it
bookshelves: 2012, texas-setting
Read from May 10 to 15, 2012

The description for this book actually describes the book written by Blake about those who fought with Pancho Villa not "The Pistoleer" which is a historical novel about John Wesley Hardin.

I liked the use of different narrators and how each told of their personal interaction with Hardin. In this way Blake allows the reader to finish the novel having learned something about the life of John Wesley Hardin yet he leaves the mystique of the gunslinger intact. For those who are interested in Texas history I recommend they put James Carlos Blake on their list of authors to follow.
