J I Hall, Jr

“J. I. Hall, Jr…..A Western Novel” is a very interesting book I suppose that it is about time that my Grandfather’s name was used again, even if in fiction. My father used to tell me stories of how much that Iverson Bonner hated the name “Judge”, preferring Iverson. When I first heard these stories, I couldn’t understand the reason, as I thought “Judge” was a very imminent profession and was something to be proud as well as emulated. After reading the first three chapters, I see why J. I. Hall, Jr. may have had problems with it too.

I was impressed also about the description on the attack by the Apaches on the buckboard driven by Harlan Hedges when Harlan was killed. I was able to follow the action in my mind’s eye just as if I had been riding on the buckboard, and I really felt as if I was present as Harlan Hedge’s life slipped away as his daughter held him in her lap encouraging him to hang on. There may be room for improvement, but I feel that this manuscript has a lot of potential. It reminded me a lot of my own experience out west when I had no transportation and had only my feet, a bicycle, my imagination, and free access to the KAFB library for information to feed that imagination.

Thanks, Errol…I appreciate you reading the book and I hope you will read the entire story. Pete
