The Nacogdoches Trail: 1870's Texas Adventure based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The Nacogdoches Trail took me back to the days of Zane Grey’s Wild West but without Grey’s overlay of idealism and fantasy. Instead it is a story that rings with truth and fact without losing flavor, excitement or interest. Robert Carroll is first of all an accomplished and creative story teller who brings to life his characters and makes the reader really care about them. You are with young Jay Morgan as he struggles to learn to shoot as well as his outlaw teacher, as he deals with emotional and ethical dilemmas and as he overcomes obstacles in the rural settings of the Texas lumber country and the towns and villages of the frontier and the big cities of Natchez and New Orleans. This is an excellent work of historical fiction, based on a true story drawn from the author’s own ancestral heritage. And the style of telling of it evokes a camp fire and an old timer with a true Texas drawl. I can’t recommend this book enough.
