Top ten westerns of the decade

Bill Ott named the top ten westerns of the last decade (with an emphasis on more recent titles) for Booklist.

One title on the list:
Beecher Island. By Tim Champlin

Kansas, 1868. Matt Talbot is one of three scouts attacked by a band of renegade Cherokees. He is the only survivor, and as he makes his way from the now-hostile territory, he realizes that putting his near-death experience behind him won’t be easy. An engaging western with plenty of psychological insight.
Read about another novel on the list.
