Caprock
by S.J.Beres
. . . is the most fantastic book I have read. From the first page it grabbed me and set me right into the action as if I were right there
alongside during the whole story.  It is full of integrity, mystery, emotions, all of which left me sitting on the edge of my seat at times
turning pages as fast as I could.  It had me laughing, cheering for the strength not to lose, holding my breath and saying Yessss!  
Alright!  Good for you! In other
circumstances, such as the groceries and in many other times. The fear, sadness and admiration and the many emotions I felt are
remarkable.
A story of the Wild West and the history of Caprock and legends, the hardships of all that the desert endured, from the elements to the
dangers, showing the strength and courage of all who were there daring and courageous enough to be there, including the animals and
of the relationships, bonding and trust between humans and animals and how much that bonding was needed then.  And the
personalities of the animals definitely made me smile, as it is so true of animals and their true beings.
Joshua Block, a fine and outstanding man along with others is a man of fair play, second chances, justice, honesty, truth and gentleness
which, as Mr. Beres writes, comes with strength.  So many twists and turns throughout the story, which led to a very unexpected ending.  
The thoughts such as, "Well there goes that clue", as Joshua Block works on the cases he was assigned.  The coming together of so
many to help each other.
This book is wonderful and perfect for the whole family.  It is full of teachings of truthfulness to being a person of courage, strength and
honesty, the symbolism's of such things such as what wearing a gun means. A world of men and women, respect and honor, the eyes
that tell the truth in each person is how Joshua Block would help things along to solving the crimes and situations and how men and
women lived and survived.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough.  It is a family story from the youngest child to the grandparents and one to be read
generation after generation. I'd so like to give everyone I know
a copy of this book.  It is just absolutely marvelous.  And I must say to Mr. Beres, the dedication of this book is that of the utmost caring,
respect and gratitude.  Dedicating it to the Pioneers who settled the West for us. Thank You S.J. Beres for that and this wonderful story.  
I can't tell enough people about this book that I cannot get out of my mind and could not put down and could read over and over again.
Its absolutely Magnificent!  I cannot wait to read the next book in the series, Palo Duro Canyon , which I just received today.

Historically Accurate Western Page-Turner January 5, 2013
What an excellent dilemma! Beres does it justice with historical accuracy in skillfully-weaved situations that keep us constantly on the the edge.

Once again, I do recommend reading "First Dig Two Graves" to best familiarize yourself with this wonderfully-created heroic character of the old west.

Wasn't a western fan. November 26, 2012
I should lead off with saying that I am normally not a fan of westerns. I heard SJ Beres is a good storyteller. I'll say that he's not a master story teller, yet, but
surely a great one. I was pleasantly surprised. This book is mostly a page-turner and the length was just right. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
