The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales am Ebook When I saw there was a sequel to The Outlaw Josey Wales (the Good Reads link doesn't seem to work, but it's on my "Westerns" shelf), I wondered why Clint Eastwood didn't film it. The original was a good sized hit, and the movie is now considered a cult classic. Then, about the mid way point, I saw a significant, unfilmable speed bump in what has to be one of the most violent rape scenes that I have run across in fiction. It's not gratuitous, it fits the context. And this is a novel of vengeance, so the stars get aligned in the end, but it is rough to read. That long aside, or spoiler, or whatever, I feel is necessary if you want to pursue the Wales story some more. The novel also opens with a brutal scene that also is sexually sadistic, as a group of Rurales, led by a career driven maniac, invade The Lost Lady Saloon, which was Josey's in-town hang out at the end of the earlier novel. It's there some loyal friends get abused, and it's there that the Rurales end up on the list of a man with a remorseless Highland-Outlaw Code. And that's really what the book is about. The Code. It isn't just Josey's code, as he recognizes fellow travelers in a dying Mexican bandit, a stoic young Apache woman, and a seemingly lost gambler trying to find himself. Carter is a complicated guy with a very controversial past. At one time he was a rabid racist and Klansman, but one who also wrote an award winning children's book. Somewhere along the line it seems he tried to reinvent himself (as a Cherokee!). He would die in a murky brawl with one of his sons. Some said he never changed. Maybe, but Josey Wales is not a racist story. If anything, it's the opposite, as Wales gathers the outcasts, the cripples, and the weak under his protection. The outlaw's guns seem firmly aimed at corruption and the arrogance of class and wealth. The Vengeance Trail is pulp, but also more than that. There's a rough genius to Carter, and I don't say that lightly. I wish he'd lived longer and given us more than two Josey Wales novels. . None. A viral Books The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales Though I was really looking forward to reading this one, I was forced to take my sweet time reading it thanks to complications in real life. Hate it when that happens! When at last I had time to read it again, I tore through it. This was a great western story I thought. There was tons of action, small fights, big fights, chases, ambushes... I loved it. Josey was as great a character as I remembered, but I also liked Pablo, Chato, and Ten Spot. There were some moments of humor too that had me giggling at the characters' wisecracks and whatnot. Escobedo was suitably villainous, and I liked how En-lo-e survived her experience with him and got away to wind up with a good ending. I enjoyed the setting too, charging through Mexico on a rescue mission. I think it would've made a good movie, too bad Eastwood can't reprise his role... I'm glad I got a copy of this, it was an entertaining read without a doubt.
