That he wants to set straightWith Joe Pepper legendary Western writer Elmer Kelton tells a fine and moving tale of the history of his home state of Texas.

review ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Elmer Kelton

Joe Pepper is a Texas badman with uite a past In fact there isn't much that Joe hasn't done in his forty years of living on both sides of the Texas law ex. The books I have read by Elmer Kelton I really believe he is one of the best story tellers ever This book is almost like writing in the first person as if Joe Pepper was actually telling you the story of his life At first I didn't know if I was going to like this type of writing but just like any other Elmer Kelton book I have read it didn't take me long before I was totally immersed in the story The character himself is strong as Kelton's writing lets us in on his life from his eyes and soon you realize instead of being an outlaw waiting to be hanged as he is telling the story of his life to a preacher that this could have been any of us taking a wrong turn in our lives The story left me with a strong sense of how my life could have been changed by perhaps taking another fork in the road or making different choices You get the sense that the character Joe Pepper was in the wrong place at the wrong time along with making some bad choices A good book for a lot of people on the wrong side of the tracks to read and I think they might come out of it with a sense of things they should change in their lives or things they might do different The book is typical of Elmer Kelton and like most of his books is a uick and enjoyable read This would be a nice book to take on a plane or simply just for an evening of reading
