Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Elmer Kelton writes of early Texas with unerring authority. His knowledge of the state's history is complete, too-drawn from the lives of real people . . . . The fate of Texas is at hand, and Kelton will have readers eager to find out what happens. Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Recently voted 'the greatest Western writer of all time' by the Western Writers of America, Kelton creates characters more complex than L'Amour's. Kirkus Reviews
“…keeps you on the edge of you seat as you listen to the life of a new, federal deputy marshal unfold. The Dublin Citizen
