The Nacogdoches Trail: 1870's Texas Adventure | [Mr. Robert C. Carroll]

The Nacogdoches Trail: 1870's Texas Adventure

In the latter part of the nineteenth century the west was changing rapidly. East Texas In particular, was becoming intolerant of lawlessness. One farmer said: "If you spit on a sidewalk, you better get a bucket of wash-water and get busy, or go to jail." That summed it up very well. Industry was becoming more widespread in major cities such as Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and Jefferson, "The city at the end of the river." By the late 1860s and 1870s, Jefferson was second only to Galveston in commerce.

Publisher's Summary

What happens when a teen's actions result in the murder of his father? This is a story of revenge, tragedy, redemption and family values. It is also about an adventure the young Jay Morgan could never have dreamed.

It is mid 1870s and near the East Texas town of Jefferson; a city second only to Galveston in trade and commerce. The Red River, with its upstream log jam, has created a backwater bayou that has made Jefferson into an inland port and connected it to the Mississippi River and all points north and south. Commerce flourishes, and so does crime.

Seventeen year old Jay Morgan has left his home to seek fame and fortune. Unfortunately, he has fallen in with the wrong crowd of similar disillusioned youngsters. He gets unwittingly involved with two brothers and their illegal activities. They are a part of an outlaw gang who's outlaw father says he knows too much and must join them and participant in their planned bank robbery, "or else".

The Nacogdoches Trail, while being mostly fiction, is based on a true story and charts the early development of the timber industry in Southeast.

    Story
    "Decent Western….."
    Would you listen to The Nacogdoches Trail again? Why?

    No, it's pretty short quick & predictable. I liked listening to the Western Genre, this was my first one. However, this story was very predictable, not many plot twists. When I thought the book was over, it went on for another hour--that was the biggest plot twist! Yes, it was enjoyable. Yes, I'm glad I got it, but I was hoping for something a little more suspenseful.This honest review was written in response to a free copy of the audible book.


    What about Robert Neil DeVoe’s performance did you like?

    He used his voice to really create the feel of the West & the Texan accents!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, pretty much. Quick and easy….. I nice book for a drive on the interstate.
