    Excellent story about the Navajos, Kit Carson and the true story's of the conquest of California by the United States. Some classic lines and it includes many western adventurers, generals, explorers...."back in those days, there were no outlaws..theys was no laws to be outside of" lol

    All the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child are an excellent read.
    Haven't read a boring one yet.

    I read many of athe Reacher books, but not for a few years now. They are definitely not boring but sometimes stretches the realm of believability. Give Robert Crais a try or Michael Connelly....they are all terrific reads.

    Thanks Slampay
    that looks really interesting and I haven't see that before.
    Carson was really amazing and I have been to his house in Taos NM so that will be a must for me.

    You'd enjoy Mark Greaney's 'Gray Man' books and Vince Flynn's 'Mitch Rapp' series (best read in order).

    Loved Vince Flynn. Unfortunately, he is no longer with us.
