by Jerry S. Drake

Mitch Ellsworth wants a new, uneventful life. With a history that includes Civil War service with the notorious Quantrill raiders, post-war banditry and a consequential stretch in a Missouri prison, he hopes to put his past behind him. Responding to a plea for help from Bob Carlin, a childhood friend and companion in their youthful escapades, Mitch arrives only to discover Carlin wants his help with an imminent bank robbery. When Mitch refuses, he is shot by his angry friend and left for dead. After a lingering recovery, Mitch finds he is a wanted man, mistaken for a member of the Carlin gang who was wounded in the bank robbery violence. Mitch must now set out on a danger-filled journey to avenge his friend's betrayal and clear his name, all the while haunted by remembrances of his yesteryears.

I have not read a Western in quite some time and though i would give this one a chance.
Glad I did and I will add the Western's back to my list of favorite readings. Also being from Missouri it was fun to hear the names of small towns I frequently visited with my family.
All the elements of a good story were here, but everything trotted along mundanely, with placid scenarios and characterization. Ordinary
Actually, this should have 4 1/2 stars. It was spell binding--I kept reading to find the answers-- read it yourself and see if I found the answers to what Happened
An easy time killing read with plenty of cowboys and shoot 'em up. Similar to Louis L'amour with simple language and action.
the purchase of the books for a dollar are to confusing both books I purchased through your $1 sale I was charged full price and to delete purchase either does not exist or again is complex so you are drawn to pay full price
Don't fall for this scam like I did. I ordered the 20 books at $1 each but was charged more than $20 and Amazon has refused to refund my money and cancel the book order. Don't fall for it.
This book is a great read, and a nice excursion into the historical period of this book's setting. Drake's writing style moves along at a good clip, and this book is hard to put down. The story is full of fascinating little situations, and the characters are well-drawn and interesting. I bought this book because I have read other westerns by Jerry Drake, and I've loved all of them. I recommend this book 100%!
A decent western with a good story line and interesting plot. There are so many western novels out there it's difficult to define one from the other. You either like it or you don't. Suffice to say, the story of a cowboy done wrong and his search to find the real culprits (bank robbers) makes for an interesting story. Nothing out of the ordinary or to write home about, but an entertaining read if you like the western genre.
