A great character driven story that brings the roughness of the wild west to life. It had a slow pace to it, especially in the beginning, but it just worked. I especially enjoyed the way the H/h could laugh and enjoy each other despite all the crazy hard times going on in their world. The dialogue between H/h was especially funny at times, and the story was told in a way that made you feel you were right there in the old west. I will read the next in this series for certain. Hope you enjoy it!
