About book: The Texas Frontier, 1865 The Civil War is over and Texas is reluctantly yielding to the Union soldiers spreading across the state, even into the dangerous Comanche country. David "Rusty" Shannon, proud member of a "ranging company" attempting to protect Texas settlers from Indian depredations, finds that the rangers are being disbanded. But Geneva has married in Rusty's long absence and the country is filled with hostiles-not just Indians, but hate-filled Confederates, overbearing Union soldiers, and army renegades. Rusty's youth as a captive of the Comanches returns to haunt him when, in pursuit of Indian raiders, he takes as prisoner Badger Boy, a white child taken from his murdered parents by a Comanche warrior.

The Civil War is over and Texas is reluctantly yielding to the Union soldiers spreading across the state, even into the dangerous Comanche country. Badger Boy CHAPTER 1 The Texas frontier spring, 1865. Rusty Shannon saw brown smoke rising beyond the hill and knew the rangers had arrived too late. The Indians had already struck, and by now they were probably gone. He had expected trouble, but his pulse quickened as if the smoke were a surprise. He signaled his five fellow patrol members and spurred his black horse, Alamo, into a run. He did not have to look back. The men would follow him; they always did though he had no official rank.

Award-winning writer Elmer Kelton―a star in the shrinking Western genre―totes you effortlessly to the post-Civil War Texas frontier, where white settlers were just learning to live with freed slaves, Comanches and each other. His characters, like Shannon, make mistakes, are far from perfect and take life in stride. In this 2nd book in his Texas Ranger series he introduces us to Badger Boy. A White child captured by Indians and being raised as one of their own. When the Rangers retake him the boy resents being taken away from his Indian family and has trouble relearning a White lifestyle. Badger Boy shows up more in the Ranger series.

What we like the most? Well he is a very good writer, he can include description and surroundings in a way you can enjoy and continue in the story. We wintered at the Rio Grande valley for a lot of years and that made it so real knowing the areas. My husband has just finished the whole collection and I have one book to read, and we have thoroughly enjoy the hold series.

Kelton did it again. Since I love Elmer Kelton's books and really love the Texas Rangers. I knew this one would not disapoint, and it didn't. In this 2nd book in his Texas Ranger series he introduces us to Badger Boy. A White child captured by Indians and being raised as one of their own. When the Rangers retake him the boy resents being taken away from his Indian family and has trouble relearning a White lifestyle. Badger Boy shows up more in the Ranger series.

I must have misunderstood the description. This book style is not what I had anticipated or thought I was ordering.
This is the sequel to The Buckskin Line and Rusty is no longer the naive kid; he still makes mistakes, yet takes life in stride with maturity. The war is over but in 1865, Union solders are spreading across Texas. The state is dealing with the reconstruction period and the losers of the war are concerned over how they will be treated. For Rusty, the Texas Rangers are all but disbanded so he returns home to his farm on the Red River finding his beloved Geneva Monahan married, over-zealous Union solders, angry Confederate renegades, rednecks venting their racism on freed slaves, and Comanche raiders. While in pursuit of the Comanche, he finds Badger Boy, a captured white child named for his feisty attitude. Rusty is empathetic to Badger Boy's desire to go back to the Comanche people so, at great risk, he takes the journey alone with Badger Boy into Indian country. The book ends with Badger Boy staying with the whites (for reasons I won't get into) and an expectation for another sequel.
