I received a free kindle copy Little Man, and the Dixon County War by Stan R. Mitchell from Amazon in exchange for a fair review.
I don't usually read 'Westerns' but Stan Mitchell is a gifted writer. I will look for more of his work. I gave this intriguing book five stars start to finish.
Paul 'Little Man' Zachary shared some of what he learned fighting for the South: "My Captain used to say, “If you’re not muddy, you’re not low enough,” and that advice has saved my life more times than I care to count."
Little Man rode into a town with no name & entered a saloon without a name. Two men got up & left after he dragged a table over so his back was protected. "They knew blood was about to be shed and probably didn’t want to be sitting six feet away from one end of it. It’s fun and amusing to watch when you’re young, but by the time you’re in your forties like these two guys, it just loses its flavor. Wounds last longer, and recovery isn’t as smooth."
