Summary, etc.:
From rodeos to rustlers, from ranch life to the outlaw trail, Elmer Kelton's take on the human condition shows us life in Texas as it was back then: simpler but harder, with danger always present. Filled with unforgettable characters and adventure, and imbued with a love of the time, the people, and the place, these stories bring us unforgettable characters, including a young veteran who overcomes PTSD to fight a fire ravaging his town, a sheriff who chases bandits despite having lost his job, and a frontier housewife who refuses to let her home be held hostage by criminals.
