    Great story telling... This is one of those books you don't want to end. He makes you feel like you know the characters and want to hear their story. I'm looking forward to the coming books in this series. Great job!

    Best ones yet. I have read dozens of Western tales. Lived the early west vicariously. This was truly one of the best. I liked the development of the characters and the real feel of the places, characters and outcomes. This one was good.

    THE LIFE OF A U. S. MARSHALL This starts out like the usual FAMILY REVENGE, but it does and it doesn't end the way we think. This is a nicely written adventure, with many facets to the creation of this adventure. The names that are used are so real. Your made to feel the pain, ANGER and the lack of respect for mankind. The characters described, for instance Saginaw Bob McGrauder, Hooty Gwen, Killin Bill Hogan, are just some of character's names. This book will have you laughing some parts are sad THE LIFE OF A U.

    This is one of the best westerns i have read. I plan on reading more of J. Lee Butts westerns, He is a good writer. The marshalls had a lot of ground to cover in those days.

    I've been on a western role lately and have been so lucky to find another terrific story. Mr. Butts has done an outstanding job of writing about US Marshall Tilden. It includes all the things I love in westerns and it's well written! In an unusual format, Mr. Tilden is living at the old folks home and a young reporter wants to interview him about his life. Although fiction, you wouldn't know it because it's so realistic. The characters are colorful and there's lots of action.

    Pretty good cowboy story Story is told from a lawman to a newspaper reporter. It has an almost tongue in cheek quality to it. Certainly a well spun yarn. Give this one a read for a light weight story of the old west.

    I found the Western history fabricated for this book to be fascinating. The rest of the effort was long and difficult to follow. I love Westerns but this presentation was not one of my favorites.

    Surprisingly entertaining A five star. I don't give many five stars. I'm a died in the wool Louis L'Amour fan and this ranks right up there.
