    1. Thank you to Candi and Howard for alerting me to this series with your wonderful reviews.In Elkhorn Tavern we met the teenaged Roman Hasford whose father Martin, a Confederate, had gone to war. This novel commences where Martin returns home, and Roman leaves home to seek his fortune (and to fulfill his dream of seeing some Cheyenne!).Elkhorn Tavern is an excellent novel, but I preferred this one as the character development is outstanding. Young Roman meets several interesting people, falls in l [...]

    2. On the day Roman Hasford’s father came home from the war in June of 1865, it was raining. The new green of the Ozark hardwood timber was like washed lettuce, dripping clear crystals in the slow but steady fall of water from a pale sky that held the sun close above the clouds and was about to break through at any moment. It was not a bleak day. It was a pearl-gray day, shining and gentle, with even some of the birds ignoring the weather and making their sparkling calls that seemed, like the lea [...]

    3. When I first read this way back in the day I would have given it a 4 or maybe even a 5. Not now. I found it wordy to the redundant and at this point in my life I also find the advancements in Roman's adult realizations and development all around much too slow to become real/connected to this time of the nation's history. He was just too good a mix to believe toward such successful outcomes for me now. Especially within his interactions with some viscous prone hoodlums and harsh men as compatriot [...]

    4. Douglas C. Jones can sure tell a story. And he can sure create some believable characters, good and bad. He takes those two things and adds historical detail and comes up with some fantastic novels that have me reading when I should be doing other things.Roman Hasford leaves home when his father returns from the Civil War. He is 19 years old and wants to see a little more of the world than just the family farm in Arkansas. Specifically, he has two goals: to see some buffalo, and to see some real [...]

    5. copied and pasted from "KIRKUS REVIEWSuperbly layered post-Civil War sequel to Elkhorn Tavern (1980), which told about the disrupted farm life of the Hasfords on the Missouri. Kansas borders of Arkansas during the unsung Battle of Pea Ridge in 1862. As in his earlier historicals, Jones seldom thinks twice about drawing his plot line in details. But since this is a period novel about a frontier education, the reader welcomes Jones' mastery of time and place and finds it entertaining as a Candide- [...]

    6. started as a 3 star but worked its way up tobeing a 5 star at the ending. Not like other older western novels which I am used to but just different enough to make me want to read some more of this authors novels.

    7. Just reread this book again. It's the finest "opening of the west" book I have ever read. It skillfully tells a "coming of age" story in a very organic way.

    8. Roman is a little bit like Per Hansa in Giants in the Earth. Things seem to happen easily to him. Anyway It's an interesting saga about the 1860's and 70's in Kansas.
