Jim Robison, Barry Riggsbee and Gene Curry were just three of the cowboys who were let go from the Trailback ranch after the Blizzard of 1886. Thus begins Robert Vaughn's exciting continuation of Ralph Compton's trail drive series in THE ALAMOSA TRAIL. After loosing their money in a poker game some of the cowboys decide to rob a train but are unsucessful. However Jim is in ElPaso meeting with the gunman Clay Allison about delivering some horses to Allison's ranch in Alamosa, Colorado. Along the way are some adventures like the poker game Jim has, Clay Allison's gun fight and the outlaw Shardeen taking Katie Kincaid and her daughters captive to sell in Mexico. All this and the trail drive has not even started yet. THE ALAMOSA TRAIL will have you turning pages in anticipation of what is going to happen next. THE ALAMOSA TRAIL IS A MUST READ!!!!!!!!
Compton weaved his magic again through another trail. I got to thinking to myself, "how can Compton write the same story again and again about a bunch of cowboys on a trail?"
Well, he does such a good job developing characters. I am really uncertain who is who. You think you know who is a bad guy, but once you think you got an idea, then they turn good and a good guy goes bad.
Ultimately, this book was a page turning, easy read. If you like something simple, this is it.
