Third in the ‘Murphy’ series, this book continues the fateful tale of lawman Al Murphy and his trials in the wild west of the late 1800s.
I enjoyed this book immensely. Paulsen, well-known for his children’s books, easily transfers his clean, efficient writing to the adult western.
Murphy’s Herd is packed with intriguing, well-researched characters, and is masterfully woven together to create an exciting tale.
It is a great beach read, and, at 147 pages, perfect to take along on your spring break trip.
