    KILL OR BE KILLED Henry Lewis Hankins(Hank), has just returned home from the"War Of Aggression, " which he named, even though his family never owned slaves, he felt he had to join the Confederate Army not because he believed in slavery, but he didn't like the idea of the "Yankees" coming South telling them how they should live. Seth Hankins his brother, left to seek his fortune mining silver. Hank's parents hadn't heard from Seth in two years, they would get a letter twice a year from him, then the KILL OR BE KILLED Henry Lewis Hankins(Hank), has just returned home from the"War Of Aggression, " which he named, even though his family never owned slaves, he felt he had to join the Confederate Army not because he believed in slavery, but he didn't like the idea of the "Yankees" coming South telling them how they should live. Seth Hankins his brother, left to seek his fortune mining silver. Hank's parents hadn't heard from Seth in two years, they would get a letter twice a year from him, then they just stopped. So Hank tells his parents he's going to Nevada to search the mining camps for his brother. So Hank and his "Cash" his pal(horse) leave eastern Tennessee to search for his brother. During his search Hank relied a lot on his military training to save himself from the many hold-up gangs/men who in the past way -laid a lot of unsuspecting folks. He locates his brother and he also gets married. The U.S.Marshal swore him in and for a while he utilized that law to break up a corrupt city council which may have included the attorney general of Nevada accepting bribes, judges who over look any infractions committed or just dropped the charges. Hank and Lila adopt a little boy named Wilie whose him is in a bordello, where the Madame would lock him in a closet at night and the cook would let him out during the day. That was the life this little five year old faced. While your reading this western, you get a picture of how life was. This author also has tibits of historical facts about the territories which eventually become states. You Wil enjoy how close the Hankin families are. They are mountain folks who take care of their own. Also the author gives a little background how white folks picked tobacco, cured it in a tobacco barn and then sold it for cash. I know that's true because when I visited my family in the South I participated in this process, didn't last long, I got nauseous because of the concentration of tobacco smell. Great reading and enjoyment, Hank and his wife Lila are people to ride the river with. Cash his horse is formidable fighter who has helped Hank a lot, saved his life a few times. ENJOY

    Lost in the old west This story brings to mind the number of people who simply disappeared in the West, never to be seen or heard from again by their families, through violence, accident, disease or on purpose. Even the chance of a letter being lost or never reaching a person so easily and often happened, and changed the course of lives forever. It gives us an appreciation of the modes of communication and transportation we now take so easily for granted. Mr. Lane’s writing reminds us.

Sometimes the forward push of the story becomes a little like, “and then this is what happened, an then this is what.......” The book would benefit by a strong, experienced editor to keep the rambling to a minimum and that always makes for a stronger work. In addition, the descriptions, development and POV of various characters could be strengthened so that the reader is drawn even closer into the story giving us more of that illusion of seeing/feeling it for ourselves.

    Hank, the book is outstanding!! If I were allowed a complaint, it would be that the book needed to be longer. The story was riveting. The characters interesting and we'll rounded. Hank, the man was someone I would have loved to be friends with. He was honest, decent, caring, trustworthy and wise. I was not so impressed with Lila's brother Seth in the beginning.

    Good read and adventure This book flowed well, the action was well thought of and you didn't have time to second guess what should be happening because you were trying to keep up! Nice change of storytelling pattern for so much to be told from the female character point of view as well. Hank reminded me of Tell Sackett from Louis LaMour, he didn't look for it but he handled trouble head on. Great hero and heroine with Lila.

    Quiet hero Henry Hankins is a unassuming man with values and extraordinary courage. This is a fast moving tale of a brother's search for his lost brother. Yet he not only friends his brother but in the process he finds his true love and a young boy to love as well. The corruption of the lawless West is a dramatic backdrop for this lively story. Enjoy!

    Wonderful story ! The story line moved along at a good pace. Kept me interested in what would happen next. The action was good but not too gory, which I appreciated , also not overly detailed descriptions on the violence, which I also appreciated . Just a really good story that I didn't want to end .

    Excellent western! Another good story from the author! R.O., you have a rare gift, keep on writing! John Ringo is another of my favorite writers. If you folks out there have trouble spelling "author", remember the symbol for gold is "au" and then the Norse thunder God "Thor". I hope that it's correct, I feel like a dummy often enough.

    R O Lane writes another great Western! If you have never read a book by this author you are missing out,his creation of the characters and his story about them make you feel like you are part of the family and you will actually miss them when the book is finished.

    Hank This was a relatively good story. The problem I had with it was the main character was not only a hero but a super hero, he was in the right place at the right time,knew when someone was going to shoot at him, etc, etc.

    This book was much like the Sacketts of Louis LaAmour I have read almost all of Louis La Amour books and the books about the Sackett adventures I can relate to because an ancestral relation came from the area in Tennessee there always stories and they did go west.
