There once was a time...
when longhorns bawled and cowboys hollered on the dusty Chisholm Trail... when wild young men toting six shooters danced with saloon girls and dreamed of the mother lode... when Comanches on the warpath drenched the plains in blood...and one hard, hurting cowboy began a legendary trek across the American West...

Magnificent, sprawling, and impeccably researched, BRULES captures the exhilarating romance of a time and a place that will never exist again. An epic tale of one man's search for justice in the Old West, Harry Combs's classic novel tells the story Cat Brules, whose life embraces the whole short turbulent history of the West... who sought revenge in a one-man war against the Comanche nation...who found brief, passionate love with a Shoshone woman...and who rode hell-bent toward the tragedy that would make him an outlaw, or a hero....

A refreshingly different western. It "feels" real. If you like westerns, and are looking for something different than the usual shoot-em bang-em up cowboy book then this book is for you. Sharp prose and plenty of irony.

Very good adventure of the unsettled west.
