Book Review: Ride the Desperate Trail

This western is a tale about the people in Texas after the Civil War. The story is woven around the multiple racial issues involving blacks and Indians.These issues were faced in various ways by some, but they affected everyone. I enjoyed this story as it ran through the thrill of multiple chases and then being confronted by the real residences the Apache. The chase seems to end many times as Free Anderson the main character is chasing after his kidnapped wife Clara along with his best friend and mustang wrangler, Parks Scott. The driving force pushing Free after his wife is that he knows she is pregnant.

Clara was initially kidnapped by a ruthless murderer Tig Hardy who beat Free’s mother to a slow death and then he planned to use Clara to extract his vengeance on Free. One continuing driving force through the whole story is that Free knows his wife is pregnant with their first child. The murderer is killed by the Apache’s and Clara is then their captive and she becomes the wife of the warrior who captured her.

This western story by the author Mike Kearby is well written, but it may have to many issues for the average western reader. I enjoyed this story and recommend this book to all western readers.
