    1. This one is a must read for anyone who read Ride Proud, Rebel. We find out what happened to Anson Kirby and meet Drew's father. Plus, there still aren't any starry-eyed females skulking around in the background

    2. This is the sequel to Ride Proud, Rebel. Drew Rennie has taken his young stud, a mare in foal, and an Army mule and set out West in search of his father, Hunt Rennie. But when Drew finds Hunt, he realizes that his father is very wealthy and has adopted a boy about Drew's own age. Drew has no interest in being an unwanted encumbrance, or being seen as a leech. Perhaps he will just move on. The West is a big place.This book is more fun to read than Ride Proud, Rebel, and can be read as a stand alo [...]

    3. The Civil War over, the South defeated, Confederate scout Drew Rennie leaves Kentucky for the small frontier town of Tubacca, Arizona, in search of the father who he has never seen and thought was dead. Hunt Rennie, known as Don Cazar, runs a thriving ranch, despite the attentions of Apaches, bandidos, an interfering army captain, and a wild, killer Pinto.Drew rides in on his horse Shiloh, deciding to conceal his identity from his father until he gets to know him. But he hadn't reckoned on the o [...]

    4. Reminiscent of Zane Grey’s westerns, Ride Proud, Rebel is equal to any of Grey’s writings and Rebel Spurs is a welcome sequel to it.

    5. The book was interesting, but very differ from Ms Norton 's normal writing. However, I would suggest that you read "Ride Proud Rebel", first.

    6. Rebel SpursI like this story better than its companion novel Ride Proud Rebel. Maybe I like westerns better than Civil War novels.
