    One thought on “Slaughter”

    1. copied and pasted from "KIRKUS REVIEW� An Englishman, a tough girl from Ohio, a cowboy, and a Comanche come together in a search for the last of the great herds of bison--in another outstanding western by the author of Honor at Daybreak (1991). Most Comanches find it impossible to believe the ridiculous rumors that reach them from the territory of the less-than-credible Cheyenne, who believe that white men have begun systematically to eliminate the bison, the animal on which the Plains tribes [...]

    2. Oh Elmer, how I love you. By far, one of my favorite Texas writers and I think I'm just going to have to read all of his books. One of these days. . .Not an easy tale, which you can probably figure out from the title. The slaughter is of both buffalo and people. Kelton follows both the Commanches, trying to figure out why there are so many fewer buffalo and the buffalo hunters, starting to notice that there aren't quite as many to shoot. Some wonderful character studies of both the hunters and t [...]

    3. The Llano Estacada has a lot of history and I have read many books about it. Kelton writes about real people. Since I grew up in West Texas, I know the Caprock and also the rolling land below it to the East. I have been right at the Double Mountain where this tribe of the People camped. Later, this same Double Mountain became a landmark that pioneers looked for. They wanted to stay South of it, because of the Indians. But on a clear day it can be seen from a long way from many directions.

    4. A good western. Would have been great if it had been a little faster paced. I want to read the sequel. First Kelton book I've read - it looks like he writes a pretty solid book, I'll probably read a bunch of them.

    5. The bufflao heards have been killed off and both the Indians and hide hunters are suffering the consequences. For the Indians the struggle for life goes on while the hide hunters fight for ecomonic survival. The two clutures clash. Add to the mix jealousy and men's lust for women.

    6. I really enjoyed the two narrative viewpoints. Of the Comanche's, and the other of the men seeking the Buffalo further south. The story had adventure and drama enough for me try reading faster to find out what happens. Full spectrum of emotions can be experienced reading haha.

    7. This was the first Kelton novel I ever read, and perhaps his best! I've read 25 or 30 more by him and have enjoyed all of them. Highly recommended, book and author.

    8. This is a western about the conflict between the buffalo hide hunters and the Comanche. Some interesting characters and quite a good plot. Comes close to a 4 star.
