I used to avoid western novels. Then I read Gary Stuart's Ten Shoes Up and The Valles Caldera. It is a veritable rarity to enjoy eating your words. Now the two Johnstones are once again making me realize that a good story teller can tell their story in any setting. Will Tanner is a good example of a fine story that just happens to be set in the West.
The story is populated by interesting characters and highlights some of the brutality of the ole' West starting with the death of Jim Hightower and through Fletcher's. It is a good story and a good read.
Will Tanner grows into a man to be reckoned with!
