I'm a little worried that I'll run out of McMurtry novels to read, after I read recently in one of his memoirs that he thinks Rhino Ranch may well be his last. So I went back to the Berrybender series that I missed when it came out originally. Not his best, but enjoyable and I have no doubt that I'll finish the series (this is the second of four). I am struck by the way McMurtry, at his best (and there are little glimmers here) uniquely and unpretentiously captures the thoughts of people who are refusing--or attempting and failing--to understand another person.

The tumultuous, bloody and almost heedless trek of the Berrybenders continues, albeit much of it spent stalled in a trapper's fort waiting for the spring. Tasmin and Sin Killer's married bliss is interrupted by a bout of domestic abuse. Lord Berrybender deteriorates mentally but remains utterly appalling. Babies are on the way: no less than three are born in the course of the novel. Pity the poor babies. Barely crawling and they are subjected to long treks across deserted wilderness, buffalo stampedes, Indian attacks and encounters with the odd cactus.

Readers of the first volume will not be surprised that some of those alive at the end of Sin Killer will no longer enjoy that happy state by the end of The Wandering Hill. Means of death are varied, but death by buffalo - and no, not the stampede - gets in early for most horribly memorable. The story itself remains fresh and unpredictable, and Tamsin develops nicely as a memorable, scrappy, bad-tempered heroine, maturing in her attitudes as life and death teach her harsh lessons abut themselves. One suspects, with two volumes to go, there are a surfeit of both on the way. ( )

Part 2 of Sin Killer series as Berrybenders depart their boat and head for a trading post. Babies are born, adventures and names of many real mountain men are interweaved with the fictional family. ( )

This book appears to be a follow-up on the book, Saccajawea. At least I knew a lot of the characters already. There doesn't seem to be much of a story here other than some rich English and Scottish folks traveling in the frontier of America. It discribes the hardships endured by the Europeans who are only used to there luxuries in their secure homes. They are attacked by Ute indians and charged at by a large herd of buffalo. ( )

Fantastic!! Best series for feeling, tasting, smelling what it must have been like to live in those times. ( )

But while none, save these, of men living, had done,
or could have done, such things, there was much here
which--whether either could have done it or not--
neither had done . . .

The Berrybender Narratives are dedicated to the secondhand
booksellers of the Western world, who have done so much,
over a fifty-year stretch, to help me to an education.

The old mountain man--tall, gaunt, furious, snow in his hair and beard, and murder in his eyes--burst into the big room of Pierre Boisdeffre's trading post just as the English party was sitting down to table--the table being only a long trestle of rough planks near the big fireplace, where a great haunch of elk dripped on its spit.
