I really, really liked the first Wade Everett book I read, Shotgun Marshall.
Cavalry Recruit was a story based on a young man who didn’t live up to his family expectations. Being hte youngest brother, he lived an educated life in Ohio, but was a great disappointment to his father.
Highly educated did not translate into family respect.
He then travels west, joins the army and sort of falls into heroism. My expectation was he was going ot turn into a strong character, I never felt he did.
It was worth reading, had it’s strong points, but I only give it a 2 out of 5 stars.
