Texas History Done Kelton Style

The state of Texas owes Elmer Kelton a big debt of thanks for all of the novels, stories, and tales he set in that geographic location. With this book, Kelton again demonstrates himself to be the chroniclier of western history. No one does it better, sticking to the facts and removing the "myth" that is the west. This book is the 1st of a 3 book set he wrote, Sons of Texas; The Raiders; and The Rebels. Get all three and enjoy a family history lesson in what it was like to uproot your family and move to a "new" and "foreign" country, and the struggles to survive that transition and make a home. Buy this book. Personal note: Elmer Kelton was the only living western author I was buying when this book was published, and was until his death. I know of no one to take his place.
