What do reviewers say?
“When I heard that Gene Turney had written this book, I knew I had to read it because I have enjoyed so much his stories about growing up in the same part of Texas. I was not disappointed! It is a great read. There is some gunfire and romance so I guess it would be rated PG, but it is a good book for cowboy lovers of any age. Gene has done a good job of capturing the goodness of the people who inhabited this part of Texas in that time period and has woven it into an interesting and heart warming story about those people and their special affection for the land.”
