Read full description of the books:
The Unforgiven is a very internse and powerful book set in the rugged Texas panhandle (circa 1874). Central to the plot is the Zachary family: mother "Tilda" (worn down mentally), oldest brother Ben and surrogate father (24 years of age - the father, Zach, had drowned four years before in a river cattle crossing), brother Cash (21 years), sister Rachael (17 years) and Andy (16 years). The family are ranchers striving to eke out a living. Rachel is not the biological child of Zach and Tilda, but was found on the plains as a baby. Her parentage is questionable, whether white, Indian or of mixed race is unknown. Rachel is not aware of this and is very much an integral sibling in the family. The narrative focuses on Rachel, race relations (whites and the maurading Kiowas), cattle ranching on the Texas plains in the late 1800s, and more. I was particularly impressed with the writing style of Alan LeMay. He is a powerful, intense writer, adept at infusing in the dialogue the Western vernacular of this era. The cowboy slang, emotive expressions, and compelling metaphors, coupled with the lack of proper grammar extant in the southwest at this time and place (yet sometimes even more expressive than the King's English), made the narrative beautifully eloquent. The action was harsh and gritty yet the author never stooped to exploitation or sensationalism. I just finished LeMay's "The Searchers" and was so impressed I decided to read more of his works. I was not disappointed with "The Unforgiven." I have read many of L'Amour's Westerns and considered him the consummate spinner or Western yarns. After reading "The Searchers" and "The Unforgiven", I have come to view L'Amour as LeMay-lite.
