  1. A little slow going at first, but the details of preparing for and executing a cattle drive from Montana to South Dakota make a solid foundation for the stark violence that ensues The characters are all well realized enough that I didn t have a problem with telling all the boys apart, and the central character Wil s angst over what he sees as his failure to raise his own sons right surely made him breathe on the page, and complimented his relations with the boys as well I think it picked up a gr [...]


  2. Thoroughly researched, compelling, and well crafted I read this on a whim after I bought it at a used book sale, and wondered how I d ever missed this as a cowboy and horse loving kid Far complex than the wonderful John Wayne movie.



  3. This book, along with The Cowboy and the Cossack were both recommended to me by my grandfather It s the story of a cattle rancher who s cowboys all leave to search for gold and hires all the school boys in the town to herd his cattle 800 miles to market In this story, the author conveys the gruff, unrelenting way the rancher trains the boys, along with the pain of seeing one or two die This novel was also adapted into a movie starring John Wayne and Roscoe Lee Brown back in 1971 As always, the b [...]


  4. According to , Jennings wrote this book based on a film treatment he had sold, which was made into a movie with the same name, starring John Wayne That happens to be one of my favorite movies, I ve watched it many times and the book follows the movie pretty closely or vice versa.Also on it says the book caused a lot of controversy among publishers due to its glimmers of homoeroticism I d say those few glimmers are the main things that pop out as not being in the movie And they aren t major thing [...]

  6. I remember being practically scarred by the end of this book However, it was so long ago I read it that I can t trust my memories of it.
