I've read all the L'Amours, many of the Keltons and Leonards and Brauns. I've read many of the Zane Gray's but not for years. I've had trouble frinding new work that realy grabs me so I've been writing my own. Amazes me how I'm often suprised by my own story.
have read alot of Louis L'Amour and am looking to read more westren's by other authors. will be checking out Matt Braun, Elmer Kelton, and anyother that I can find.
Bud; There is a connection to mine at my blog --- www.dmmcgowan.blogspot.com
I've had that feeling for a long time now, So I've taken a time in our Western History and in doing that. I've
gone out and found what was published on that subject. Giving me a source of None Fiction. This is now my reading for truth, and not that of another's imagination! Now lets take another look at this-I've lightened up
and allowed the narration to grace my shelf. Where the author takes a incident in history and interjects his list of to be believed characters! This is exceptionable in my quest. And it makes history come alive. So here is my starting place--The Texas Rangers!--This is a group of folks that grace the pages of history, Many storied written about and of this group! So I found in this a author who I hold in the highest of respect!
Elmer Kelton he made a life time venture into this Origination, and its people. And a good starting place is in his book-"Massacre at Goliad" to follow up in this the book-"After the Bugles"--So you pick the place you like and take up the challenge. Its enlightenment and rewarding!
I have read two of Elmer Kelton's books so far, Texas Standoff and Captain's Ranger's both good reads and I will be reading more of his books on the Texas Ranger's probably starting with "Massacre at Goliad" and the other one you said "After the Bugles". Thank You for the reconmendations.
And in that order. Then they will make science! And for now let us stay on that subject. There is a veritable life time of informatician and good reading with in this group. And its not fiction!
