    THUMBS UP FOR THE REBEL OUTLAW JOSEY WALES!!!

    The author has a excellent knowledge of The Civil War, land, horses, southern language, and Indians. 'Gone To Texas' was made into a movie by Clint Eastwood, but the book gives a more detailed account. The second novel 'The Vengence Trail of Josey' was almost made into a movie by Eastwood, but plans fell through on the project. If you are a fan of the Civil War, Jesse James, or just like good old westerns--this is the book for you!

    Highly recommend . I really enjoyed this read.

    If you like a good western, you'll really enjoy these two books. I've read these books two or three times and enjoyed them every time. Forrest Carter knows how to. Write a book. The movies are great.

    Great Fun

    I have always been a fan of the Clint Eastwood movie The Outlaw Josey Wales. When I recently saw that the movie was actually based on a book, I immediately went out and bought it.
    The movie has some of the most quotable lines of any movie I have every seen and I have been delghted to find these lines in the book.
    It has been great fun to read and I have thourghly enjoyed it.

    Very highly recommended

    This was two books for one, and both of them wonderful. If you ever liked a western, this is probably better.

    Very entertaining - should be a "must read" for everyone

    Having enjoyed Clint Eastwood's portrayal of Josey Wales, I was pleased to find the original story by Forrest Carter. I was even more pleased to find that the book was even more entertaining, along with the bonus second saga (set after the end of the movie). Well written, briskly told, and very colorful - this is a volume well worth reading.

    Two of the best westerns ever!

    When the wife and son of Josey Wales are killed by Kansas redlegs, Josey rides into the violent guerilla border war between Kansas and Missouri. When the war ends and Josey's companions are betrayed and killed, Josey takes revenge, then flees into the Nations. There he meets Lone Watie, a Confederate Cherokee and their adventures as they ride south to Texas is chronicled in the first book. The second book, the Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales begins when two friends of Josey are brutally murdered by the Rurales of Capitan Jesus Escobedo. The book chronicles the search of Josey, Chato and the Mexican peasant Pablo through Apache country into Mexico until the fateful meeting with Escobedo and his men in a narrow canyon of death. Awesome stories! I highly recommend them.
