A good western, adventure, and coming of age story. Started out a little slow, but picked up once Henry entered the story. I love a young protagonist, so I enjoyed the narration by Thomas and his growing bond with Henry as they travelled cross country with bad guys on their heels. Recommend this for fans of True Grit.

* * * * 1/2 Thought I was going to get a Texas-style yarn out of a 50's western. Instead I was surprised and pleased to read a very compelling, engaging, historical fiction novel with all the elements worthy of a 3-part Masterpiece Theatre on PBS, a play, an art-house movie. Just a great read, and a intriguing escape. Hope the author writes more.

The comparison to True Grit is a good one, as this is a lean and gritty story about a boy whose journey with his father turns tragic, leaving him to fend for himself and avenge the murder. Unlike True Grit, the boy seems an unlikely avenger, finding his footing as he goes along with his stand-in father, Henry Stands. The spare but vivid language takes you back in time, and the plot is speedy and character-driven.
