Summary

From seven-time Spur Award winner Elmer Kelton comes a riveting tale befitting the Western Writers of America’s Greatest Western Writer of all time.
When Comanches slaughter his parents in 1855 West Texas, eight-year-old Jeff buries their scalped bodies—and the charred remains of his younger brother. Taken in by a homesteading family, Jeff ekes out an existence. But as he dons Confederate gray, he never dreams his brother is alive—or that he’s wearing Union blue.

A story of the old west

First let me say that I like westerns. My favorite western author is Larry McMurtry, but right behind him is Elmer Kelton. This novel is a story of two brothers, separated by tragedy at a young age. The story is of what happens to each of them and is believable albeit fiction. I did get into the story though and wanted to know what happened to these boys. The story also gets into the fringes of the civil war and how the boys get caught up in it. It is not a penny dreadful shoot em up gunfighter story but has just enough action to keep your interest. I gave it four stars because I liked Lonesome Dove and a couple of other McMurtry books better and I don't know how else to distinguish that. If you like westerns then this one is worth your credit. Well narrated too.
