Day Seven – 2018 Blog Tour

Blog Tour Banner

Conditions throughout Texas today are frigid.  An arctic cold front blew in last night bringing freezing temperatures, rain, sleet and ice. So it is certainly a good day to stay inside, warm yourself by the fire, be safe, and enjoy a good book.

To that end, if a copy of Palo Duro has not yet found its way into your library, I offer the following excerpt from today’s review to peak your interest.

“Only one thing about her new life bothered Molly – the continued slaughter of the buffalo. The hunters killed the cows leaving the calves to starve to death. Their cries as they stayed by the dead carcasses of their mothers could be heard across the prairie and their pitiful bawling moved her to action.”

With that one paragraph Max L. Knight captures the wantless destruction of the buffalo from the Western landscape. In his novel, Palo Duro, he retells the horrific, savage wars and interactions between Indians and government soldiers. It also recounts cattle drives, Buffalo Soldiers, to the beginnings of the Texas Rangers.
