The plot is great--sort of like the main character--it just pushes on, never building to any huge confict or climax, just goes right along telling the story. The story is set down on the border in the 1960s. There are no semi-trucks, no 4-wheelers; cattle are still worked from horseback and loaded into straight trucks. The feel of that era, the feel of the region, and the feel of the cattle business are perfect.
No mere novelist, no matter how accomplished, could have ever written this book. Only a cattleman could.
