Publisher's Summary

Seven-time Spur Award winner Elmer Kelton sets this "completely absorbing" prequel to his award-winning classics The Good Old Boys and The Smiling Country in 1889 Texas. Hewey Calloway and his kid brother Walter head for West Texas - hoping to live their cowboy dream. But when Walter's crush on a gal threatens the dream, Hewey plots to get Walter back in the saddle again.

    "Enjoyable story"

    Kelton always keeps me interested and this book was no exception. I like the way he develops his characters. I inevitably feel like I am riding along with his cowboys. Guidall is a great narrator and I enjoy his characters' voices.

    "I liked Smiling Country better."

    It would have been better without the cursing. I liked Smiling country and Hewey Holloway character in that book.
