    One thought on “The Far Canyon”

    1. Review copied and pasted from "KIRKUS REVIEWIn this sequel to the award-winning Slaughter (1992), Kelton again proves himself to be a resonant voice of the American West. In 1874 Jeff Layne, a Confederate veteran and reformed hide hunter sick of killing both men and buffalo, is on his way back to Texas to revive the family ranch, which fell into carpetbagger hands. With him are good-hearted -- and big-bellied -- Cap Dolittle, sophisticated Englishman Nigel Smithwick, and independent Ohio woman A [...]

    2. I have been on a Western jag for a while, reading two of Larry McMurtry's books in particular Streets of Laredo. Before that was McCarty's highly recommended All The Pretty Horses. I tried Elmer Kelton's Year it Never Rained but couldn't quite get going with it. I found Far Canyon in our Friends book sale and I am glad it leapt off the table into my fist. How the west really was is used so much that I don't believe it as a way to describe a novel of the old West. However, the phrase seems applic [...]

    3. As usual with Kelton's books, it is well written and fast paced. Once again, he surpasses his previous novels, recalling with vivid simplicity the glories and hardships of life on the American frontier. It seems that you are actually there. I have seen some of these canyons and can relate well to most of the locations mentioned in this book.

    4. Mr. Kelton is one of my favorites, along with a couple of other western writers that I really, really, like Zane Grey and Louis L'Amour. This is a another great story about young men and women in the settling of the west around the time that banditos raided on both sides of the Rio Grande and Indians were being rounded up by the Army.

    5. ya'll know I like western/indian types, and Mr. Kelton is a good story teller for this type of book. Jack and I both like him.
