"One of the best of a new breed of Western writers who have driven the genre into new territory." --"The New York Times""Elmer Kelton is an authentic American voice." --John Jakes"This is a hallmark of any Kelton novel: His research is thorough and his feel for the time and place is remarkable." --"Fort Worth Star-Telegram"Vom Verlag:
In the cattle drives of the Old West, pumpkin rollers were green farmboys, almost more trouble than they were worth. When Trey McLean leaves his family's East Texas cotton farm and sets off on his own to learn the cattleman's trade, he's about as green as they come. But Trey learns fast. He learns about deceit when a con man cheats him out of his grubstake and about love when he meets the woman he's destined to marry. And when luck finally sets him on a cattle drive to Kansas, Trey learns the trade from veteran drover Ivan Kerbow, but he also learns the code of violence and death from outlaw Jarrett Longacre, a man who will plague his life at every turn.
