5 Stars, by Steven R. Hoover “Steve Hoover”on July 4, 2014: The “Lomax” books by Preston Lewis are funny and enjoyable.
5 Stars, Ride On Billy, by Stony Monday “Stony Monday”on April 6, 2014: This is one of the funniest books I have ever read. There are three in the series. The other two are about Wyatt Earp and Jesse James. Supposedly the author was actually there and he tells the story from his experiences. You must read the three books. As some old timers might say “they are a real kick in the pants!”
5 Stars, Great book, easy reading, lots of humor, good writing, by Robert Rodriguez on March 25, 2014: The book is very interesting. With some historical content. It made me think and laugh. Whether any of (it) is factual or not, it is worth reading. I wish that text books were written like that
5 Stars, Truly excellent read!, by JBP on June 8, 2013: I’m one of those people that didn’t expect a lot out of this book. Was I ever pleasantly surprised! Very personable story telling (and I don’t for a minute buy into some fellow named Lomax having all these papers from which the writer drew from ever existed…in fact, I don’t know if the writer actually existed!) No matter! One still gets a fictitious, though always amusing, romp through Lincoln County and some of its residents such as Billy the Kid, of course. This book had me laughing out loud. I kid you not. To me it was actually up on the same level of Larry McMurtry’s comical and tragic writings about the West. Yes, I would mention Lonesome Dove and many other of McMurtry’s books. If you like McMurtry, you’ll like this. If you haven’t read McMurtry, then I’d say read him too and particularly his westerns! This was a fun read!
4 Stars, by Linda Williamson December 18, 2001: I haven’t finished this book yet, but am about 2/3 done. I didn’t want to read it, but found nothing else around. I can hardly put it down! It tells the story of the Lincoln County War so convincingly from the viewpoint of H.H. Lomax, that I was driven to the Internet to learn more about the actual events. The writing is very descriptive and entertaining. I wish I’d read this before we went through Lincoln Co., I’d have paid closer attention.
5 Stars, Preston Lewis makes the Old West come alive, by A Customer on January 10, 1999: After reading one of Mr. Lewis’s books I found it to be wonderful. If the West was anywhere near what he writes, life was an adventure. I have his whole collection.
