Last Stand at Redwood by Jesse Storm
Reviewed in the United States on October 29, 2021
Ace Knight was a pig farmer amongst cattle ranches just outside Redwood. The cattle men and most of the men from town didn't hold ACE in high esteem and most likely thought he was a coward. But, Ace, only 14 when the war began was kept home by his father, even though his older brothers, now both Texas Rangers, were allowed to fight in the civil war. Yet, Ace's training by his father established a great sense of right from wrong in Ace and that would be one of the factors that would save most of the town of Redwood from Jed Baxter's wrath when his son was killed after a raid on the cattle drive camp by Baxter and his gang. Ace's sense of honor and right brings things to a head and a successful outcome when he and Baxter faced off in Redwood when Baxter raided the town to get the individual who had killed his brother. Ace Knight is symbolic of the men from his time as America moved on from the civil war. Great read and just a little bit more of history of the "old west."
