5.0 out of 5 stars

A Great Read By Stephen G. Lonefeather : I've been a reader of the website "Rope and Wire" for a year now. When I found this collection of western short stories written by one of its members I decided to check it out. At $1.49 Kindle I couldn't lose. Well, I certainly got more than my money's worth and plenty of laughs, smirks, smiles, and grimaces along the way as I read these stories. Christopher does a great job of painting vivid pictures of his characters and settings in an easy-going traditional western way; with some surprisingly not so typical endings.


4.0 out of 5 stars

Timeless By Pistol : From a westerner's perspective this was a great read. It captured the flavor of the west from an early 20th century author's perspective.
