This book is worth reading for the history alone.
I did a lot my own research while reading, because although I know the author obviously took liberty with the characters and even some of the timing of events, I really wanted to know how deep the fiction went. From what I could find, this is an extremely accurate account of events.
This book is not for the faint of heart however and I have to warn you…it is GRAPHIC. This is the real story and the author does not spare the details of war or of life.
This is a great book – for its history and for the story surrounding it. This book is beautifully written with so many details and beautiful descriptions. The characters felt so real to me. I loved them, cried with them and even missed them when I finished the book.
I think everyone should read this book, should know the story Jack Hays and the other Texas Rangers. The author has written this historical fiction novel with great attention to detail.
I highly recommend this book to fans of historical fiction or anyone who wants to read a well written, unique novel.
