The Ordways by William Humphrey

Here is the story of Thomas Ordway, the narrator's great-grandfather, who was blinded at Shiloh and moved his family from Tennessee to Texas. Here, too, is the saga of his grandfather, Sam Ordway, who scoured the vast land of Texas in futile search of his tree-year-old son, stolen by his neighbor in 1989. 'Little Ned, ' that lost, legendary uncle, grew up in the narrator's mind to be now a rancher, now a lonely wrangler, now a good-hearted rustler.
