    The plot was a bit thin, repetitious and predictable; characters one-dimensional in too many cases; the landscape minimal and the dialog maximal (but decently written). Kelton has received numerous impressive awards, and since I didn't loathe Jericho's Road, I'll try another one.

    Jericho’s Road by Elmer Kelton I like Westerns. This author is known for receiving the Spur Award so I thought this should be a good book. Wronnng!! Yes, it had all the necessary ingredients of the genre, horses, cattle, gun fights, poverty, campfires, relationships based on land, love, lust and more important it cut a slice of the time between cultures on the Rio Grande. This is what I found so very objectionable. As a minority I no longer am willing to spend my free time reading derogatory r Jericho’s Road by Elmer Kelton I like Westerns.

I am sure the author would say that this was character and story development, and I am trying to understand that -but in the end-I cannot. I will read Wikipedia or a history book but not any more of Elmer Kelton.

    This is a book that I probably would not have chosen for myself, but since it was put in my hands, I thought I should give it a try. I am glad I did. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I was drawn in by the young, thoughtful main character. He did his duty but also let his conscience guide him. I found the history fascinating,too, explaining the roots of much.

    Ranger Andy Pickard is sent to the Mexican border to help curtail an inter border war between two landowners, one Mexican and the other American. Andy gets himself captured by both sides and is disillusioned by the tactics of the Rangers. The border war has been going on since the Spanish to America. Ok but not great.

    Part of Kelton's Texas Ranger series, this western novel has Ranger Andy Pichard transferred to the Texas-Mexican border. The racial war between whites and hispanics is highlighted as Andy is caught up in a conflict between cultures and the greed of men regardless of ethnicity.

    This is the first book I've read by Elmer Kelton that disappointed me. It wasn't terrible, or I wouldn't have wasted time finishing it. But it just didn't flow like the other books I've read by him. This is the first book I've read by Elmer Kelton that disappointed me. It wasn't terrible, or I wouldn't have wasted time finishing it.

    Rookie Texas Ranger Andy Pickard joins other Rangers patrolling the new border between Texas, now part of the US, and Mexico. The main focus of the story is the developing range war between the displaced Mexicans and the new Texican cattle barons as they rustle each others livestock and ambush each others cowhands. Andy is not too effective as he manages to get stung by a hive full of wasps, taken prisoner twice and have his horse and weapons appropriated three times.

After most of the warring cattlemen have killed each other off he wisely decides it is time to quit rangering, go home. and court his sweetheart, Bethel. Not one of Kelton's best.

    Good Badger Boy/Andy Pickard western. In this one Andy, a Texas Ranger, must travel to the Rio Grande area to help stop the Mexicans and Texicans from battling with each other. What he experiences there changes his entire life. Recommended.

    My first Western. I thought I would never read one, but had to for class. I was very pleasantly surprised. I'm not sure I'll run out and read more, but I enjoyed learning about the characters and the history surrounding this story. My first Western. I thought I would never read one, but had to for class.

    A Very interesting western novel, in a novel way, handles the subjects of racism and war. Like how Elmer lays it out plain to see, but it is not resolved. Let's the reader do some thinking for himself. A Very interesting western novel, in a novel way, handles the subjects of racism and war.

    I'm not sure where I ran across this. I keep it in the car to read while I wait for Addie. It isn't bad but it won't be what he is remembered for. I'm not sure where I ran across this. I keep it in the car to read while I wait for Addie. It isn't bad but it won't be what he is remembered for.
