3.0 out of 5 stars The first Spur winner of a noted western author. June 8 1999
By R. D. Allison ( - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This novel won the 1954 Spur Award for best western novel of the year. The story focuses on the eighteen-year-old Dan Nathans who is traveling with his parents and young brother to settle in a region of southeastern Oregon. Dan, who is alienated with his father, goes to work for a local, and powerful, cattleman. He soon finds himself caught in a feud between the cattleman and the settlers. He is also caught between his affections for a young woman, who is believed to be of ill repute, and his own upbringing. The reader sees him mature through the novel.
5.0 out of 5 stars Struggle in the Old West Nov. 3 2014
By Jaxsyn Smith - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Gripping tale of life in the old west and the struggle to survive. A great story about life, love, betrayal and loss. My favorite book ever written. I've read it at least 10 times in the last 30 years.
