Shockingly boring

How could such an accomplished author produce a work that plods as much as this one? After 6 hours of listening I threw in the towel as it was just too painful. I'll continue to be a fan of his stories, but this book was a huge mistake.

Great story

Elmer Kelton is my favorite western author. I read every book of his I can get my hands on. His stories are real because he lived the subject.
I always wanted to know more about him and this is his life plus a lot of serious true history about life in most of the Twentieth Century. It also has a lot of humor at times, and a lot about WW1 and WW2 you only hear from veterans.
