Summary

Hawk Haynes ruled from his heart, but stayed alive by using his instincts. Hawk was on his way to start a new life in Texas when he runs into burned out wagons. He finds families slaughtered, the men killed, the women raped, and killed. Hawk Haynes had just introduced himself to Southwest Texas.

Hawk had been deeded land just northwest of Rawlins for his services in taking care of Ted Rawlins and his wife until their death. According to Ted, the property he deeded to Hawk was prime land. According to what Hawk saw while traveling, it was anything but prime. It didn't look like it could grow grass, but it could grow outlaws, gunfighters and murderers. That made it easy for a man like Sid Rawlins hire all the ruthless men he needed to him solve his problems. Hawk and Rawlins will lock horns and A Braver Man will be crowned.

A BRAVER MAN

Excellent book! Well written with a good story and lots of action. This is a role for John Wayne if he were still with us. I hope Mr. Kimes keeps them coming.

Over the top

The good guys too good the bad guys too bad. A schoolboys opinion on patriotism, God, and the Civil War. The hero is too fast, too tough, to be believed. This is a 17 hour penny dreadful.

Excessive Violence and Swearing, Foul language

Would you try another book from Royal Wade Kimes and/or John Pruden?

No

What could Royal Wade Kimes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Less unnecessary killing and eliminate the "hard on my ears" violent language.
It was a unique plot. He dragged out the ending by inserting events that could have been left out.

What three words best describe John Pruden’s performance?

Good voice, talented

Totally predictable

All the stereotypes of the most predictable Western stories are there... Really boring to the extreme.

very bad writer

surprises me that this was ever published. My 12 year old writes better stories. I sometimes wonder how these things get sold to dummies like me. Oh well.

Long

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This book got LONG to listen to. It was pretty easy to figure out the end, and so many shootings!

Cool hand Luke

Cool hand Luke liked it better than the Sacketts, which they seemed to have some pretty far fetched gun battles just far from being true, can you believe that bullet hit a twig and bounced around etc, and Braver Man didn’t seem to have those miraculous events in every chapter..
My opinion of course.

Interesting but Wooden in Plot Line

I was looking for a writer that would come close to L'Amour, and this wasn't it. It became way too long and complicated, and could have used some shortening. The cursing, mentioned by others, increased as the book wore on. The author gave an odd mixture the basest elements of the west and a strange mixture of Bible themes.
