    READ THIS BEFORE BUYING

    This is a really good book, i couldnt pit it down. I love that the main charactor is a girl, it really portrays the life of the outlaw and the vigilent gunslinger. There is a good amount of action amd some( not much) romance. In some parts it gets kind of sexual( not enough to worry about though). It does have language in it( but how many good westerns leave that out) i loved this book but wod not recomend for children under 14.

    - someone who loves a good western

    Strange family story

    It is a good story and it is unexpected to have a girl for the leading character...

    Good read, except for some facts...

    I like this author. His stories and writing style are detailed and flow well, the character development is good with small bits of humor sprinkled throughout.

    Probably the worst thing about this book is the weather. It's the middle of September and in both Kansas and Texas the characters are "snowed in" with several feet of snow and below-zero temperatures.

    In reality, the average temperature for Kansas in the middle of Sept is in the high 70's. I couldn't find any mention of a severe storm in 1870, either.

    If you can look past the absurdity of the snow (which form a couple plot lines) it's a good read.

    Once you start it's hard to stop

    This was an engrossing book. I wasn't sure when I started it, but it grips you and you don't want to put it down. I read it in a day and I've re-read parts of it a number of times while I looked for the 2nd installment. Just bought my Nook and can't wait to get started on "The Shadow of a Noose".

    Death Rides a Chestnut Mare, a book to resurrect the west.

    a rough and tough novel that speaks of growing up, morals, ethics, family values, and the moto that all the good guys lived by 'make right the wrongs,' defend the defenseless,' and 'helpin those in need.
