Thank you for the review but more importantly thank you for the contribution. It's clear that you have a truly authentic Black western heritage that I personally would like to read more about.
If you don't have complete stories it's ok. Each temple is built one stone at a time. About Gus Smith sleeping in the wagon while the horse took him home, that is believable. I worked with horses for awhile and though it didn't happen to me, it is generally known that horses are punctual and usually expect to be at certain places at certain times. Many a rider has been inconvenienced by their horse deciding to head home, with or without them.
