GONE TO TEXAS

Good adventure yarn, episodic in character (the first section was a short story in the O'Brien collection), but with sustained interest, a romance in the making, and the same characters throughout. The period is post Civil War; the central figures, a youth who served in the Union Army, now sent to serve on the border, and a southern girl, whose cousin and uncle are involved in gun-running over the border at the start of Diaz career. Good picture of 1868 military life, of sentimental standards of courtesy and department, with nice humorous touches and many qualities that would give the book a plus sale with men who like above average westerns.
