About this deal

After barely escaping nemesis Killer Boots in the tiny Arizona Territory town of Glorious, Cash McLendon is in desperate need of a safe haven somewhere—anywhere—on the frontier. This is apparently a story based on real events, which at first I didn't realize. I had expected another fictional western type story. And with that said, these characters in here were real people. Who had actually lived. And real life isn't as exciting as a fictional story. And it's rather glum too... There are lots of things in here I found rather disturbing and other things that made me ask questions I had never thought of before. Like it made me wonder if a person could survive a scalping and apparently you can (if you don't bleed to death first). So if you want a very accurate idea of what life was like in Kansas around 1874 this is a book you should read. It doesn't sugar coat stuff, so it can be a tad brutal.

This book is historical and a good read for those who have an interest in the American West. It will encourage the reader to read and find more information on the characters as well as the area. New York Times–bestselling author of The Last Gunfight, Jeff Guinn once again brings the Old West to life in the grand follow-up to Glorious. BUFFALO’s signature high-top sneakers will give you a high – literally! It’s time to stand out in a crowd with these eye-catching heels. The chunky oversized soles give your look a dramatic edge as you stomp through the city. Pair these trend-setting women’s sneakers with dark blue denim jeans and a cute tote bag to complete the look. A lot of folks will be wishing they were in your shoes!But it was in 1984 that BUFFALO developed its first sports shoes, the BUFFALO sneakers. A cult sensation ever since, these sneakers for women have come to redefine glamor, ethics, and functionality. The pristine vegan leather collection for women offers just the right amount of flash to set you apart from the crowd. Today, these women’s sneakers are available not just in Germany but in Australia, the US, and United Kingdom too. Well, shoot, then,” Masterson urged. “We got to keep moving if we’re going to be in Dodge by dark.” Author Jeff Guinn is a well-respected writer of nonfiction, incorporating extensive research into his published works. I’ve read several of his non-fiction books and have always come away thoroughly impressed. In this fictional trilogy, he maintains that high level of research, which is clearly evident in the story. In this book, every one of the major characters (other than Cash McLendon) is a historical person. The chapters from Quanah's point of view contain lots of interesting themes regarding his culture and the nuances of the other allied tribes. The climactic battle was absolutely awesome and ranks up there with the best western battles I've ever read. It became known as the Second Battle of Adobe Walls. The chapters alternate between Cash’s point of view and Quanah’s. This allows us to understand the motivations, the characters involved, and even the tactics. This may be classified as fiction but, really, it is history told in fictional form.

I will describe the book as a harsh reality of the times. It is about buffalo hunters and also some wars between the White Man and the Indians. The book is very descriptive of the killings and what happened to the people when they were dying and after their death. It is full of history and except for the main character, Cash McLendon, most of the main characters are real people. As I was reading this book Gene Barry, who played Bat Masterson of the TV series, was on Fantasy Island. Adobe Walls has a history that precedes the arrival of the men and one woman who occupied the place. I have listed some links of the history of Adobe Walls. Did you know herd animals help fight global warming? Thank you, Billy Dixon, when you were out murdering those bison you were creating global warming too! We need herds. Just a little something I learned from reading that Wholly book...yes, a little rant. In essence, this follows two people: Cash, who is just trying to find his happy place with the woman he loves, and Quanah, an Indian warrior intent on proving he can defeat the white man. We see these two rally up with multiple different groups of people to get their end goals, but it doesn't go according to plan. Cash ends up at the wrong place at the wrong time with a group of some of the west's greatest characters--Billy Dixon and Bat Masterson--and under fire from an elite group of warriors from the Kiowa, Cheyenne, and Comanche all under the belief that they are following the spirits' wishes. BUFFALO sneakers are here to amp up your wardrobe game with its excess of 20 color combinations – that’s one exciting color palette to browse through! Jeff Guinn is the bestselling author of numerous works of fiction and nonfiction, including Manson, The Last Gunfight, and Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie & Clyde. A former books editor at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and an award-winning investigative journalist, Guinn is a member of the Texas Institute of Letters and the Texas Literary Hall of Fame. He lives in Ft. Worth.

Buffalo Trail is the kind of book that can get anyone excited about history. With the exception of our head character, all the main players are real people. They lived, they breathed, they fought these battles. So when we get a story like this, one that follows two sides of the same story--it adds a whole other level of excitement. It is easy enough to get invested into a story when the action is good and the characterization is worthwhile, even easier when you know that most of what is articulated is stuff for the history books.

But no good can come of entering the prohibited lands they’ve crossed into. Little do Cash and his fellows know that their camp is targeted by a new coalition of the finest warriors among the Comanche, Cheyenne, and Kiowa. Led by fierce Comanche war chief Quanah and eerie tribal mystic Isatai, an enormous force of two thousand is about to descend on the camp and will mark one of the fiercest, bloodiest battles in frontier history. New York Times–bestselling author of The Last Gunfight Jeff Guinn once again brings the Old West to life in the grand follow-up to Glorious. In another departure from the genre, Guinn’s West is funny. McClendon and Masterson hunting buffalo:

Guinn recommends in his Notes the outstanding S. C. Gwynne book, Empire of the Summer Moon: Quannah Parker and the Rise and Fall of the Comanches, the Most Powerful Indian Tribe in American History, and I heartily concur. With that out of the way, the story alternates between the Native American tribes (mainly the Comanche) and the white settlers who are in the area. They both want buffalo but for different reasons. And of course the two groups end up clashing with each other. Whether you want to be out running, step up your fashion quotient, or stand tall with an inch or two propping you up, BUFFALO sneakers spell urban chic and lightness, every step of the way. Vegan is IN - Leather is Out!

I definitely favored the chapters with the tribe better. I just found those more interesting. Quanah is trying very hard to save his people and their way of life. And he realizes that the normal way that they do things isn't enough: they have to try something new. And so he tries to bring many different groups in the area together to fight a common enemy. The way he arranged this is rather brilliant as it's a unique idea. So I enjoyed these chapters even if they were sometimes bloody and violent.I debated on a 4 or 5 star because of the language and graphic details but this is historical and so I will give it a 5 star rating. I will admit I skipped over some of the more graphic details. Full of historical notable figures from the Old West, this second volume in Guinn’s trilogy not only provides a buoyant narrative but also several lessons in Western history. This title is so well constructed that it could stand alone (for readers new to the trilogy). Guinn skillfully ties his carefully constructed prolog outlining the Massacre at Sand Creek (1864) to a lone female warrior he imagines at the Second Battle at Adobe Walls.”—Library Journal I won a complimentary copy of Buffalo Trail from www.goodreads.com. This is an uncorrected proof copy but I did not see and errors. The opinions are my own.
