Great story loosely based on an actual cowboy strike in Tascosa, TX in 1883. The characters have depth which makes you feel like you know them and hope for the good guys to win. You feel like you are there with the cattle, the dust and damp smell of the dugouts, sourdough biscuits, bad coffee and more. I loved how the author chose the words which would be just how the cowboys would talk: "Hitch, you better git over yonder. There's apt to be trouble." The story so interesting that I read it faster than I normally read. I didn't want to put it down. I am looking forward to reading another of his early books.Was this review helpful?

This was my first Elmer Kelton book and I really enjoyed it. Reading books has never been real easy for me but this one never lost my interest. He has a style that is so easy to read.
