  • As good as any spenser or Stone story ... Nov 17, 2010
    by rjent

    This is just a good western. Period. As a man who grew up in NM on a cattle ranch a long time ago, much of what he writes is very accurate. The plot is complex, but easy to follow, and is very character driven. I just love this book and the series of four books that go with it. (see my review of Resolution)

  • blockbuster western Oct 28, 2010
    by Lillian (Lou) D

    One of the best westerns I've ever read.

    For those who see the movie, it was faithful to the story.

    The relationship between Virgil and Everett is believable and makes for great reading.
    The only complaint I have is it was too short. I hated for it to end.

  • The Old West Aug 19, 2010
    by Robert B

    This excellent story is the first of a four book series of the old West. It reminded me of "Lonesome Dove". The author may have intended to write more of the series but he died in early 2010.

    I read Appaloosa after reading Resolution (its sequel); but that didn't matter. This book stands up to the sequel, which is even better.

    If you like Westerns & Parker's style of writing this is a good one. You should also read Resolution and then Brimstone.
