Does anyone here read Ralph Cotton?

Any readers of Ralph Cotton out there? This author has gained immense ground in sphere of western fiction - anyone have anything to say about his books?

Good western novels are few and far between - any recommended western novels would be welcome.

I recently came across the gem of ‘Gone To Texas’ by Forest Carter, which was stunning! It shows you how good western fiction can be when it is done right!

Elmore Leonard has written some excellent Western novel,s but I agree, good “oaters” in literature are few and far between. The West seems to work best on the screen, not in print.
