    I love Westerns. Movies, books, etc. But not this. This is like a cross between a 60s daytime soap opera and not even a B roll western. Any historical story needs to be somewhat historically accurate. Unfortunately this book is the opposite. The greatest flaw of any historical work is trying to adapt modern day mores and values to previous times when people simply didn't think the same way they do today. This book is rife with not only that flaw but so many modern terminology which didn't exist I love Westerns. Movies, books, etc. But not this. This is like a cross between a 60s daytime soap opera and not even a B roll western. Any historical story needs to be somewhat historically accurate. Unfortunately this book is the opposite. The greatest flaw of any historical work is trying to adapt modern day mores and values to previous times when people simply didn't think the same way they do today. This book is rife with not only that flaw but so many modern terminology which didn't exist in that period. He talks about "closure", definitely a late 20th century concept. "Bonding" same issue. For example the author uses the term "joe" for coffee when that name wasn't invented until 1930s. The term Ms was not invented until 1970s. An unmarried woman in 1858 was Miss regardless of her age. Author has hero standing around talking in the middle of a gunfight while his partner is fighting for his life against multiple bad guys. Please. Then author has Sheriff at deaths door with everyone talking about infection, an unknown concept in 1858. Surgeons in the Civil War never cleaned their surgical tools, wounds, operating tables, hands, nothing. Wounds were said to fester for largely unknown reasons but even then it took many days, not in a half day, not with a through and through flesh wound. Author has Eskers revolver "jam" while fighting Black Horse. Automatics jam not revolvers. Revolvers of that era were cap and ball using black powder as the propellant so misfire would be possible but then anyone proficient with those type of revolvers would simply cock the hammer and fire again. The author is simple lacking in rudimentary understanding of the times in which he has placed his story.

The Savage men performed cruel inhuman acts then murder, majority of the time unless they were selling the people into slavery for sex trade or anything. The Hero has to revenge his whole family, but he finds a child & 1st does revenge for her, & then a Healing woman wants the same people he does for revenge. It's a good western read & I recommend. I gave 3 STARS instead of the 4 because I found the reading rhythm a bit choppy.

    Too many gaps in this story. For example, how did he pay for travel from Oregon back to Nebraska? The first men that he killed to save Jennie, did he recover anything from them to help pay the costs? Why didn't he use one of the horses that belonged to the men he killed for Jennie to ride on? How many people were in the house that he and the woman (I forgot her name) first attacked the house? How many people were killed? How did the Chief escape from the house or where was he when the attack was Too many gaps in this story. For example, how did he pay for travel from Oregon back to Nebraska?

How many people were in the house that he and the woman (I forgot her name) first attacked the house? How many people were killed? How did the Chief escape from the house or where was he when the attack was made? There were more questions that went unanswered, but that will give you the idea. I big disappointment and I won't be in a big hurry to read any of Jesse's other books.

    HO HUM I didn't care for all the wordy descriptions of our hero 's thoughts. More action and less thinking would make it better. HO HUM I didn't care for all the wordy descriptions of our hero 's thoughts. More action and less thinking would make it better.

    Final Justice A good story that deserves a second book. Would love to know more about Elam and Jeanine and where their lives take them.

    Elam Eskers isn’t even a man full grown when he and his family leave Illinois with a wagon train. A wagon train should be good for protection, but that didn’t stop his family from getting robbed and murdered in Nebraska by Black Horse and his gang. Too young and not near ready to go after Black Horse, Elam continues west to Oregon with a family that takes him in. A year later, older, wiser and more than ready, Elam heads back.

A wagon train should be good for protection, but that didn’t stop his family from getting robbed and murdered in Nebraska by Black Horse and his gang. Too young and not near ready to go after Black Horse, Elam continues west to Oregon with a family that takes him in. A year later, older, wiser and more than ready, Elam heads back. Along the way, he encounters some murdering thugs, who were trying to decide what to do with Jeannie, a little girl, whose family they had just murdered. Elam killed 2 of the 3 and injured the other, who got away. Jeannie is about the age of his little sister. They make it to Nebraska, to the closest town where his parents were killed. Asking questions leads to bloodshed and leaves him no closer to knowing where Black Horse is. Everyone in town seems to be either afraid of Black Horse, or aligned with him. Everyone, except Allene, who was one of his victims. She knows where he is. Together they track him down. They don’t get him, but they get half his gang and rescue another victim. That leaves it up to Elam and the sheriff. You might remember Elam as the aging gunfighter in Final Ride For Justice.
