Before he was famous for his crime novels, Elmore Leonard wrote a bunch of western stories and novels, including "3:10 to Yuma" and "Valdez is Coming," both of which were filmed. "The Bounty Hunters," from 1953, was his first novel. It's not as accomplished as his later work, but will be enjoyable for fans of Leonard of the genre. He's a very different writer than Cormac McCarthy, whom the other commentator mentioned, so I'm not sure if a comparison is particularly apt. His western stories are collected in one volume. Suggested pairing: whiskey, mezcal.
It was just okay for me. I will however try a couple more just to be sure. I feel like he is a 1970's, made for television version of Cormac McCarthy. You know all the good guys live, get the hot Mexican girl in the end and live happily ever after. I prefer how in a good Cormac novel pretty much everyone you have ever cared about in life dies a horrible death right in front of your eyes. Sure it's a skosh brutal and gruesome but come on that's really more like real life.
