Move over Louis L'Amour and Zane Grey! If you want to read a really good Western, with real live, larger than life characters, look no further. You will find what you want right here.

Mr. Ryter tells us that he writes with a Southern accent and a fellow American might notice this. To us from the other side of the pond, he writes very good American English, with few errors in grammar and spelling. His sentences are generally well constructed and..............................

But you are not really interested in this, are you. What you want to know is, is it worth my while taking the time to read this rather long book? Yes, it is. Once you have started, you will appreciate its length and if you are like me, you will be a little sad when it has ended, although the author has promised us some additional chapters in the future.

I'm not the greatest Western fan in the world 'but I sure do like to read one iffen I comes across a good un', as Eli might have said. As I have implied, this is the definitive 'good un'.

It is a little violent in places but Mr. Ryter writes of places and times where a man needed to be a little violent to survive and protect his family.

There are also some good history lessons concealed in this book but don't worry, there is no exam at the end.

Go on, read it; it will capture your attention but beware, some other projects might suffer delays as you decide to read just one more chapter before starting on them!
