Oh yeah this is my firstNot counting Annie Proloux’s short story Brokeback Mountain this is the first Western novel that I read from cover to cover Western is the genre that I find the least interesting I think the reason is that there are no cowboys here in Manila and horses are being used either to bring tourists around some historical sites or to race with other top breed horses for some kind of euestrian sport where the rich and famous bet and win a lot of moneyThis first book of the Goodnight Trail series was based on historical facts This was the main reason why I picked this book over other western novels by let’s say Zane Grey or Louis L’Amour In the course of my reading fiction I would like to be well rounded and try to always maintain some kind of variety So why not try Western? I got some western fictions already I bought them at bargain prices and mostly by impulse I mean they were cheap so I bought them but when I got home I read their blurbs and maybe tried a page or two but I always ended up closing and putting them at the bottom of my to be read tbr stacks of booksAs this book transferred from my tbr to read folder obviously this did not suffer that kind of fate This is different because this is not only western but also a historical fiction The author Ralph Compton 1934 1998 was of course a famous American a Texan western novelist and the “Goodnight” in the title was not because the cowboys did their horseback trips during night but because there was really a cowboy named Charlie Goodnight and he was this legendary rancher who blazed the Goodnight otherwise known as the Western trail from north Texas to Denver sometime in the 19th century He also served as a local militia fought against Comanche a Plains Indian tribe raiders This was how he looked like according to Wiki So this novel was actually based on that real person a cowboy Charlie Goodnight and Texas rangers who in the book were named as Benton McCaleb Will Elliot and Brazos Gifford and they rounded up thousands of ornery unbranded cattles for a long drive to Colorado Then they moved to Denver and battled endless miles of flooded rivers parched desert and whiskey crazed Indians It is non stop action but not the bang bang car chase type of actions but engaging encounters and fights against Indians and how to survive against the fury of nature There are other historical characters mentioned in the book such as Judge Roy Bean and the legendary gunslingers like Clay Allison but I had no urge to google them so I just assumed that they are as famous as Charles Goodnight Proof that Charles was famous? He has his statue outside of the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum at the West Texas AM University campus image error This author was recommended to me some years ago and I remember picking this up in the final days of Borders 90% off liuidation sale Book 1 of the 'Trail' series and I believe it was the authors first published book That probably explains the faults I found with it The writing was adeuate but bordering on annoying in a few places Some repetition of the same phrases over an over again got on my nerves a bit But my main gripe was that the author appeared to be trying to cram every western trope into one book Cattle drives fighting off Indians fighting off Mexican bandits taking on an Indian scout greed and corrupt cattlemen landowners and lawmen a pretty girl who has to be rescued gambling turning into a fight in the saloon and the inevitable showdown gunfight in the street I think holding up the bankstagetrain were the only common ones that were missingWith so much happening it's a fast moving book that just goes from one incident to the next While I prefer that over books that move like molasses on a frosty day this one was a bit much A decent light read if you are into westerns but not up to the standard of some of the greats of the genre Given the authors popularity I am assuming that his books improve from this first one and I may try another one at a later date Overall 25 stars I thinkThe blurb on the back of the book bills it as 'historically accurate' I looked up Charles Goodnight and the Goodnight Trail and found that the basic facts are indeed correct Kudos to the author for getting a little bit of educational material in there I got bored Very poor writing when the word McCaleb appears oneverysinglepage on page 321 it appeared 10 times ugh
