one of the greatest western stories

by calvin on May 6, 2010

I deal in western literature both fiction and non fiction which I sell in my western antique business. When people ask me for a recommended wetern book I ALWAYS point them to the Way West. It won a pulitzer prize and after reading it, you'll know why. I tell people that if they can read the episode about the little boy who gets bit by the rattle snake and not get choked up over the frantic efforts to save him, just bring the book back and I would buy it back. It's the story of people investing everything they have in moving west and risking everything in doing it. Their trials and tribulations and small joyful victories comprise the story. Their real life experiences are portrayed by fictional characters that you get to know and care for. Don't miss the chance to read it.


O.K. but not really worth the time

Unfortunately, just as in "The Big Sky", there were a number of plot angles that were never carried out to a logical conclusion.


Not Bad

Not a bad book, but not nearly as good in my opinion as The Big Sky. The characters and story line were all much weaker in this book.
