    Rusty Shannon: Meet 'Badger Boy'!

    Elmer Kelton develops further the character of Rusty Shannon, first introduced to us in 'The Buckskin Line.' As the Civil War ends, Rusty finally takes leave of the Rangers (the 'Buckskin Line') to return to his home and to his sweetheart. There he finds his first surprise. Conflict between old and new enemies meets Rusty--as often as he renews old friendships and acquaintances. And some of those enemies and acquaintances are Indians. Just as Rusty had been taken by raiding Indians as a child, so was young 'Badger Boy.' The manner in which Rusty and Badger Boy link up is pure Kelton. Ah, and the great thing is that it's obvious the struggles (and Kelton's writing about them) will continue. If you've read 'The Buckskin Line' and liked it, you'll LOVE 'Badger Boy.' But you'll be waiting for more Kelton when you finish this 'un! If you have NOT read 'Buckskin Line,' do so, or this book will leave you wondering. Kelton outdoes himself again, but we know there's more to come! Doesn't get any bett'r'n that! Is the next Kelton gonna be a sequel to 'Badger Boy' or to 'Smiling Country.' I can hardly wait!!
