Publisher's Summary

Western icon William W. Johnstone, author of the acclaimed Mountain Man series, teams with J. A. Johnstone for this tale that brings together three of his most popular heroes. Preacher, Smoke, and Matt comprise the Jensen family - three generations of legendary frontiersman. When a ruthless cattle baron brings a small army of hired guns to Preacher’s neck of the woods, it falls to the Jensens to stand tall and return fire. And they intend to fight to the last man, because the Jensens never back down from a fight.

Not Bad... a little corny in parts

Would you try another book from William W. Johnstone and/or Jack Garrett?

Possibly. Not sure about the others in the series. It was good enough I might try 1 more.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Not a bad book, just not as good as I had hoped. It was very close to being a really good book except it was a bit corny and too predictable in parts. I also didn't care for the way it jumped around. Was ok for a "time passer"

Preacher, How could you not love Preacher

Smoke Jenson, the Jack Reacher of the frontier

Excellent characters, great store line and accurate historical fiction. Jack Garrett brought Bill Johnstone excellent writing alive. Smoke is a ruthless hero that can not be out gunned. You will not be disappointed if you like action pack wild western fiction.

Pretty Good Lot's of good shooting Action

This book covers the three Jensen Characters, Smoke is by far my favorite and would prefer books just on him but this is still a pretty good book.
