This isn't one of the western authors iconic books, but in my opinion it's straight forward simplicity makes it one of his best. Flagan Sackett's escape from the Apache/ Ute makeshift tribal group mirror's several events that actually occurred during the 19th century. His ability to gather food on his own is a fascinating look at man's ability to survive. There are fistfights and gunfights that occur once he regains his strength and other members of the Sackett family have battles with the Dunn's as well. As always the biggest weakness in his books is a lame cookie cutter romance with a silly girl who finally gets her head on straight and marries our hero.
My dad and uncle read westerns so I began reading them as well. This was the sole author of the genre that I continued to read past my mid teens. It's not any sort of great writing; and though the author is credited with more than 100 books if you've read 10 or 12 of them you've read them all. They are formulaic and extremely predictable. His books are easy listens moving swiftly with plenty of action sequences, plus you can follow the stories with less than your full attention. A good listen if you have a nighttime drive ahead of you, or while puttering in the house, the garage or outside on your lawn.
