One More River to Crossby Will Henry
Ned Huddleston was a Confederate Army slave, poor, hungry, but burning with a rage to be free. When the war ended, precious freedom was finally his. But when Ned stands up to a gang of small-town toughs, he trades that freedom for the harsh life of an outlaw. A wanted man, he heads west, where he discovers the song of the six-gun and the ever-present shadow of the noose.

'One More River to Cross' was a thought-provoking read. Sometimes, though, I had trouble keeping interest in the book because of its episodic nature. The individual scenes don't always hang together, and the result is a linear, static plot with little increase in dramatic tension to keep the reader turning pages. 'One More River to Cross' contains a lot of little stories that mostly have a tinge of 'tall tale' thrown in for flavor. They all ring true to the charactor of Ned Huddleston / Isom Dart until the last scene when the author too intrusively explains Isom's final actions. Still, this book was first published in 1967, and I think Will Henry was ahead of his time in treating racial themes in western novels.
