Great read! I love the beginning especially! Louis L'Amour hasn't let me down yet. His stories are so wonderfully detailed I feel as though I am part of the book! I must admit there wasn't as much action in this book as I had expected there would be. If you love a GOOD story about friendship, hard times, and happy endings I highly recommend this story!
