    This was the first Elmer Kelton book that I read, and I really liked his writing. There was a point or two where I felt a bit annoyed at the main character, but that's just part of Kelton's story writing. He actually gets you involved in liking and wishing the best for the characters.

    Whenever I'm in the mood for a western with wide-open spaces and traditional values, I know I can find them in the pages of the late, great writer Elmer Kelton. He grew up on a cattle ranch in Texas and became a journalist for a range publication before taking up writing fiction.This volume - as with a number of his books - places a fictional character within an historical setting.

    I selected this audiobook from the city library. I needed a good book to listen to on the nine-hour drive to my mother's house. It looks like the library has all of the audiobooks by this author.It's not the deepest book I've ever read.

To be honest, I really didn't remember much about Goliad from Texas history--it's been almost four decades since I had to study Texas [...]

    Great book with lots of true Texas history blended into a fictional (but very possible) story. Truly enjoyed it and could not put it down. There are "sequels" to this story, so I will try to find them now.

    A solid western set during Texas's war for independence from Mexico. The novel takes its time getting there, but the result is more vivid and realistic characters, so it's all good.
