Do You Need a Hero? Well, I've Got One for You!
This review is from: The New Mexican (Kindle Edition) By Caleb Pirtle, January 22, 2017
In the tough, raw, gritty style of the Old West.
As Americans moved westward across the frontier, they faced dangers they had never imagined before. Their struggles were real. Their lives were the stuff of fiction, and most faded into the pages of history, and their hardships were lost in the annals of time. The prairies held their graves, and often there were no headstones or crosses to ever remember they had passed that way.
William Burgdorf – in the raw, tough, gritty style of great Western writers – has captured the spirit of the Old West through the eyes of Zepaniah Bierman during an epic journey across the vast and unforgiving landscape of New Mexico.
Each new day held promise. But each new day promised nothing. A man had his dreams, perhaps, but the fortunate man was the one still living at sundown. He only knew one thing. Tomorrow would probably be worse than today. But it took a special, fearless kind of man to endure on a harsh desert where only the brave arrived. The weak didn't survive. The cowards never started.
Zepaniah didn't know it. He never suspected it. But he and his gun blazed the trail for others to follow. Those who followed him built a country and a nation. His spirit and dogged determination to go where few had gone before made the difference.
It is obvious that William Burgdorf has a strong love for the American West and an understanding of those who civilized it, even if they were never able to tame it. Come along and take the journey with Zepaniah. You may be afraid from time to time. But you won't regret it.
