Format: Paperback
With this book, Sigmund Brouwer starts the Legend of Laramie series. As many of his books do, it starts out seemly simple, but soon gets very complicated. Samuel Keaton, our hero, accidentally gets involved in a shoot-out, saving an Indian's life. While on the run, he realizes that he has gotten involved in a case involving several crimes from years before, including his own past. With Indians and the law on his tail, can he evade all his pursuers long enough to get the answers and clear his name?
Having read others in this series first, I greatly enjoyed getting to meet the characters for the first time. The other books hint at the events contained in this book, so it was nice to finally get the complete picture. While his past being resolved by the modern plot may be convenient, it also makes for a great story. As always, Sigmund Brouwer weaves a good story with well-defined characters. It's great to see Bethany House reprint this book, formerly entitled Morning Star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story, true western, totally believable hero! 26 Oct. 2016

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sigmund Brouwer is one of my favorite authors. He writes very believable and entertaining stories. Dialogue that is true and fitting. Heroes that are flawed but easy to root for and enjoy getting to know. This series and the Nick Barrett series are excellent reading.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable read! 14 July 2013
By Loresa D. Powell - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sigmund Brouwer is one of my favorite authors because he creates believable characters and good guys that you enjoy rooting for. This is historical/western fiction set in the Wyoming Territory in the 1800's, bringing that time to life for the reader with vivid descriptions of little dusty towns, majestic wilderness, the struggle between western settlers and Native Americans, and the ever present struggle of good people to do the right thing when it would be easier to look the other way. This is the first book in the Sam Keaton: Legends of Laramie and I thoroughly enjoyed all 4 books in this series.
2.0 out of 5 stars Story is OK, editing is poor 20 May 2014
By Library Lady - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If this is a digital edition of Bethany House's publication, they should be embarrassed by their editing. The story is filled with errors that a good proofreading would have caught. The western is OK, but it could have been good had there been some attention to the details that a reader expects of a professional publisher.

This book was bought as a replacement for a lost volume in the Church library. I had been out for a while and when the "new" first volume was replaced by this book, a friend checked it out and read the entire book.
