Cole tyler is a buffalo hunter for the railway but he stops over In the town of wind river and ends up being hired as the town Marshall and having to solve a murder and a robbery. I really enjoyed this book and can recommend it.
Note to Amazon you have the first and last books advertised as the same book
Hence I have to leave the reviews together
The last book is a great read that I couldn't put down. Recommended
Am waiting for more novels in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wind River by James Reasoner 19 Dec 2011

This was a good book to read. My husband and I liked it so well that we got the 2nd in the series Thunder Wagon and are enjoying it as well. James Reasoner is a new Author for us and am glad that we found his books.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT READ!!! 4 Feb 2012
By Ruth Ann Isam - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like westerns dated around the mid-to-late 1800's you will like James Reasoner and his wife, L.J. Washburn. Wind River was the first book I had read by these authors and have now read Thunder Wagon and Wolf Shadow and I'm almost finished with Medicine Creek. Dark Trail and Judgement Day are next. I love the characters....very cool class of people that live in the town and surrounding area. Cole Tyler has his hands full keeping trouble at bay. These books were published in 1994 /1995 and I havent found any recent books that continues the series.....shame My thanks to James and LJ for this series.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Hit for Reasoner 20 Mar 2012

Without question this is a very good book. It has a strong story line, and the author kept to that story line. No distractions, no meaningless verbage. The result was just a good old western novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking for action?? You will find it here! 22 Nov 2012
By Hobiescat - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, this seems to be the last book in the Wind River series. I read all seven of them and found that this is one of those series that you want to keep turning the pages. It starts with the train tracks having just reached town of Wind River. The first train with all its dignitaries arrives, they get off, and one of the two founders is shot dead! From that part of the first book to the end of the seventh book it's complete bedlam.

My only complaint and the reason for four stars is that you are left with questions at the end in some of the books that are not answered in the next book. A couple unanswered questions were a bit frustrating. HOWEVER, Wind River is an exciting series to read.
