Nelson Nye knows his Old West- and writes his sagas of times past too seldom to find himself in a groove of routine westerns. His first- The Barber of Tubac-was 1947; Long Run came twelve years later. Now with The Wol' That Rode he proves his ability to do a hard riding, fast shooting, violent story of the kinds of wars that were waged to establish cattle empires, when Arizona was still a territory. A somewhat involved and intricate pattern and cast of characters tells the story of how a renegade brother came back to claim his right to prove himself a man- and found his sister sitting in the driver's seat in an unenviable role of dictator on a grand scale. Better written than the run of the mill western.
