Texas Rifles | [Elmer Kelton]

Texas Rifles

In 1861, men are enlisting in the Texas Mounted Rifles to keep the land free from Indian raids. There are larger conflicts, however. Texas has seceeded from the union while war brews between the North and the South. Sam Houston Cloud has just joined the Texas Rifles. But he is deeply disturbed by the suffering he sees on all sides: White and Indian, Texan and immigrant. Elmer Kelton has an amazing talent for sweeping away stereotypes and filling his novels with unique, unforgettable men and women who know the ways of the frontier. Audie Award-winning narrator George Guidall's performance is superb.

    "Just What I Expect from Elmer Kelton"

    If you are in the mood for a good old-time western, you will always get your money's worth with Elmer Kelton. Set in Texas, where Kelton grew up, this story moves right along and is good entertainment. Not his best effort but worth a listen..
