Entertaining

This is the continuation of book one of the “Isoms Brothers.” The book starts right where the last book ended with Bob entering Rachel’s café in Abilene, Kansas after bring up a herd of cattle from Texas. He and Rachel are to be married. She and her mother and younger sister return to Texas with Bob to live at their new ranch.

As the story progresses, the ranch buys cattle and gather cattle from the thickets. The boys take herd after herd of cattle to Abilene. Frank gets married to Ellen and Jessie marries the Bannerman’s daughter. She inherits a huge ranch in Mexico from her maternal grand father.

The boys and families have lots of exciting adventures, some suspense, gun fights with cattle rustlers, but also humor and a view of ranch life in the late 1800s in Texas. Overall it is an excellent historical novel. Rhodes is an excellent story teller and writes books acceptable for the entire family. Gene Engene is a great narrator for western books.
