Good Ebook The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales published None. A viral Ebook The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales When I saw there was a sequel to The Outlaw Josey Wales (the Good Reads link doesn't seem to work, but it's on my "Westerns" shelf), I wondered why Clint Eastwood didn't film it. The original was a good sized hit, and the movie is now considered a cult classic. Then, about the mid way point, I saw a significant, unfilmable speed bump in what has to be one of the most violent rape scenes that I have run across in fiction. It's not gratuitous, it fits the context. And this is a novel of vengeance, so the stars get aligned in the end, but it is rough to read. That long aside, or spoiler, or whatever, I feel is necessary if you want to pursue the Wales story some more. The novel also opens with a brutal scene that also is sexually sadistic, as a group of Rurales, led by a career driven maniac, invade The Lost Lady Saloon, which was Josey's in-town hang out at the end of the earlier novel. It's there some loyal friends get abused, and it's there that the Rurales end up on the list of a man with a remorseless Highland-Outlaw Code. And that's really what the book is about. The Code. It isn't just Josey's code, as he recognizes fellow travelers in a dying Mexican bandit, a stoic young Apache woman, and a seemingly lost gambler trying to find himself. Carter is a complicated guy with a very controversial past. At one time he was a rabid racist and Klansman, but one who also wrote an award winning children's book. Somewhere along the line it seems he tried to reinvent himself (as a Cherokee!). He would die in a murky brawl with one of his sons. Some said he never changed. Maybe, but Josey Wales is not a racist story. If anything, it's the opposite, as Wales gathers the outcasts, the cripples, and the weak under his protection. The outlaw's guns seem firmly aimed at corruption and the arrogance of class and wealth. The Vengeance Trail is pulp, but also more than that. There's a rough genius to Carter, and I don't say that lightly. I wish he'd lived longer and given us more than two Josey Wales novels.

One thought on “The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales

  • When I saw there was a sequel to The Outlaw Josey Wales the Good Reads link doesn t seem to work, but it s on my Westerns shelf , I wondered why Clint Eastwood didn t film it The original was a good sized hit, and the movie is now considered a cult classic Then, about the mid way point, I saw a significant, unfilmable speed bump in what has to be one of the most violent rape scenes that I have run across in fiction It s not gratuitous, it fits the context And this is a novel of vengeance, so the [...]


  • Though I was really looking forward to reading this one, I was forced to take my sweet time reading it thanks to complications in real life Hate it when that happens When at last I had time to read it again, I tore through it This was a great western story I thought There was tons of action, small fights, big fights, chases, ambushes I loved it Josey was as great a character as I remembered, but I also liked Pablo, Chato, and Ten Spot There were some moments of humor too that had me giggling at [...]


  • The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales by Forrest Carter Delacorte Press 1976 Fiction Western This is the sequel to Gone to Texas, which is the book upon which the movie The Outlaw Josey Wales is based This story finds Josey living quietly in a peaceable community after the excitement of the first book s adventures The peaceful life ceases when a bad Mexican comes to town and forces Josey to act This is a pretty good Western As an interesting aside, author Forrest Carter who also wrote the excellent [...]


  • An imaginative, captivating bad ass tale of honor, friendship and adventure And for anyone who is preparing to decry the author for his bigoted past, yes, I m aware of Carter s white supremacist douchery, but I m talking simply about the story he tells here The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales is the sequel to Gone to Texas, the story on which the film The Outlaw Josey Wales was based Carter can be a bit too lofty and adamant at times, but he kept me reading all the way through If you like stories [...]


  • It mostly reads like a spaghetti western, but there is to the book than the bumpy, wild ride of violence through the Mexican desert Small artistic moments and some drawn out philosophical perspectives make for good additions for this enjoyable book.


  • Certainly not as bad as some reviewers have branded it, The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales is a serviceable sequel to a really good Western novel.This book put me in mind of several other books, most notably Fred Gibson s Savage Sam, the sequel to Old Yeller Well, except with some graphic rape and murder But the two sets of novels have some stuff in common, with Old Yeller and Gone To Texas both being superior novels with original plots and both sequels being chase stories through the Old West. [...]


  • Another book that has failed the illustrious rule of 50 I read Forrest Carter s excellent Gone to Texas last week and was very impressed Sadly this sequel failed to live up to my expectations.I read somewhere that after the success of The Outlaw Josey Wales based on Gone to Texas Clint Eastwood was interested in making a sequel movie based on this book He pulled the plug on the idea and the second movie was never made I am guessing that he made this decision after actually reading the book.The s [...]


  • It s funny how you can read a book and see it as one thing, but then find out something about the author that competently changes the message of something they wrote I certainly have that trouble with both of Carter s Josey Wales books, Gone to Texas and The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales.See when I first read these books in the late 1970 s I had no idea that Forest Carter was actually Asa Carter, former Ku Klux Klan leader, committed segregationist and one time speech writer for Alabama governo [...]


  • Settled down with his adopted family, Josey Wales, now happily married to the young fair Jayhawker and living peacefully with the wise Indian, Indian women, Grandma and the Spanish Vasquezs from Santo Rio times are good Then a storm from Mexico, in the name of Escobeto, sweeps into the small town where Josey was befriended What happens next will force Josey to react under the guerilla code.Carters sequel to Gone to Texas is a non stop action western thriller With far deeper character development [...]


  • It is a shame that Forrest Carter died at age 56 His books are great Why Clint Eastwood did not make the sequel to The Outlaw Josey Wales , I will not know Unless Mr Eastwood contacts me, an unknown author with a sharp jab and a shuffling gait.Not Eastwood you nit, me Anyhow I strongly recommend you stop slapping your alcoholic husband, come, put your underwear back on, get a piece of moldy bread from the kitchen and read this story.Here is a spoiler I think I may have wet myself.


  • Gone to Texas The Outlaw Josey Wales was a hard act to follow and this sequel doesn t quite live up to it The vengeance is shoe horned in a little and the new characters are overly simplistic A grim read, as you might expect, but enjoyably simplistic.


  • It certainly is better than the last 3 books that I ve read none of them will even be mentioned hereafter Great entertainment and it relates a tale after the movie The Outlaw Josey Wales It s too bad their are no sequels.






  • Good book At first glance it s just a western novel but Forrest Carter weaves in political and economic subtexts so you don t even realize you re learning something useful
