To this end, Last Stand at Saber River is Reading an Elmore Leonard book can be unsettling. His writing seems to speak privately to the reader’s mind where nothing is sacred and anything can happen. He plays with perceptions. He takes advantage of the human tendency to believe in one’s own righteousness while simultaneously suppressing truths to the contrary. He quietly forces the reader to acknowledge that there is never a "hero" in a Leonard book that is completely worthy of that distinction. To this end, Last Stand at Saber River is Leonard at his typical best.

Elmore Leonard wrote more than forty books during his long career, including the bestsellers Raylan, Tishomingo . In fact, an interesting experience for me with regard to "Last Stand at Saber River" is that I saw the movie first and left the theater convinced it was a Louis L'Amour story.

Another winner by Elmore Leonard. In these early works he seems to favor the strong, silent hero. His heroes take a lot of abuse but show restraint in responding until they are pushed to their limits. He also shows that his hero in this book can take an adversarial relationship and turn it around. In this book, his hero, Paul Cable, is a rebel soldier returning home just before the end of the Civil War. He finds that his house and land have been occupied by a group of men that are supplying fresh horses to the Union Army. Instead of going in to this situation with guns blazing, he seeks to work it out with the group through many different avenues. By the end of the book, we find Cable and his adversary uniting against a common enemy. Leonard ends the book abruptly leaving us to speculate how the future will turn out for these two likeable, but amazingly similar, characters.

This is a particularly good story of the old west by Elmore Leonard. I'm a fan of most of the western writers and especially those who include the drama of "good against evil" and its emotional impact on the characters. I live in the North but have spent some good times in New Mexico, Arizona, and southern California. I love well written stories about the Southwest especially those with interesting (and accurate) historical information about the people and places of the Old West. I've read nearly ever book by Louie L'Amour and Zane Grey, some more than once. In fact, an interesting experience for me with regard to "Last Stand at Saber River" is that I saw the movie first and left the theater convinced it was a Louis L'Amour story. Obviously I didn't read the credits. I enjoyed the story so much on the screen I decided to read the book itself. Well, big surprise, the book was actually written by Leonard and I loved the book as much, if not better, than the film. Since that experience, I've read several of Leonard's other westerns (haven't tried one of his mystery's yet) and have enjoyed.

After a bit of a slow start, the pace picks up and never LETS up until the end. Despite being set in the territories, the claustrophobia of three particular adobes makes it almost feel like a play at times.

A challenging read for modern audiences as well probably, since our protagonist constantly thinks "What would Nathan Bedford Forrest do?" when he's in a jam.

I consider Elmore Leonard a very skilled writer. His western stories are some of his best as far as I am concerned and I think if he had continued writing westerns he would have been one of the best. Last Stand at Saber River is an engrossing story that will keep you interested all the wqy through the end of the book.

Another good western by Elmore Leonard! A bit different than the usual "hero gets wronged, then takes violent revenge" story, although violence AND revenge do figure in the stor.

Very good read.
If you can stand after you start the book I would be amazed. You will sit longer than you planned as Mr. Leonard leads you down the path to the back door and you draw your gun and ... Enough said...shoot,I said too much.
