Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this fifth volume of his Texas Rangers series, Elmer Kelton takes the young ranger Andy Pickard, once a Comanche captive called Badger Boy, into the midst of a bloody vendetta between hate-filled families. Pickard and ranger Farley Brackett, a former Confederate soldier, are assigned to deliver prisoner Jayce Landon to the sheriff of a neighboring county to stand trial for killing a man named Ned Hopper but from the outset the seemingly simple assignment gets complicated. The Landon and Hopper families are in a blood feud; the Landons are gathering to free Jayce, and the Hoppers are gathering to kill him.

Filled with the author's always engaging characters and set in the historically accurate backdrop of post-Civil War Texas, Texas Vendetta chronicles the pinnacle era of the legendary Texas Rangers.

Synopsis:

In the fifth volume of his Texas Ranger series, the seven-time Spur Award-winning author takes young ranger Andy Pickard, once a Comanche captive called Badger Boy, into the midst of a bloody vendetta between hate-filled families.
