The boy was just fifteen. The posse hesitated, but not for long, before whipping the horse out from under him; then they watched him swing with the others.When Charlie Cross learned of his kid brother's lynching, he set out to even the score. This time his gun would not go to the highest bidder-this time it was personal. "A great western read, a bit of mystery, romance and suspense. I enjoyed turning the pages to find out what happens. The characters are well-formed and the banter is worth reading. Charlie and Hank have issues to work out but who will succeed? The setting is perfect as you can picture yourself right along in the daily chores and happenings. This is one author I have added to my watch list so I can read more."5.0 out of 5 stars Vengeance and Romance July 29, 2012 By Barbara Hightower VINE VOICE
In collecting, arranging, editing, and preserving the "Songs of the Cattle Trail and Cow Camp," my friend John Lomax has performed a real service to American literature and to America. No verse is closer to the soil than this; none more realistic in the best sense of that much-abused word; none more truly interprets and expresses a part of our national life. To understand and appreciate these lyrics one should hear Mr. Lomax talk about them and sing them; for they were made for the voice to pronounce and for the ears to hear, rather than for the lamplit silence of the library. They are as oral as the chants of Vachel Lindsay; and when one has the pleasure of listening to Mr. Lomax--who loves these verses and the men who first sang them--one reconstructs in imagination the appropriate figures and romantic setting.
This collection of literature attempts to compile many of the classic works that have stood the test of time and offer them at a reduced, affordable price, in an attractive volume so that everyone can enjoy them.
