I like westerns and this was one of the best I've ever read,great charachters
Great story,well written by a master storyteller. T.V.Olsen is one
of the best western writers,and I find his books to be engaging,hard
to put down,laying the book aside would be like leaving the movie
half way through.
An individual writing in our local paper recommended this author, and I do enjoy a good western. The first paragraph was a "grabber", and I settled in for a read. By the middle of the second page, there had been at least four uses of profanity, three of them invoking God's name in vain. Can't speak for after that, as I stopped reading. So, for those who might share my objection to this kind of language, consider yourself forewarned. I've tossed the book.
First printing, 1987.Customer reviews .Rancher Alec Dragoman had Mike Rhiannons' two children kidnapped to force Rhiannon to find and return his daughter Melissa who had been kidnapped by Comanches. Rhiannon, through his wife, was related to the Comanches. Three others joined forces with Rhiannon who found that Melissa had been sold on to the Comancheros. There were slight similarities with certain plot lines of the western film `The Professionals', but only slight. The interactions between Rhiannon and his Comanche sister-in-law Zumah were a joy - Rhiannon continually having to rebuff Zumah's wild but amourous advances. And Comanchero captain Harry Trevelyan and Rhiannon had a number of witty, heavy drinking and worldly wise verbal jousts.
