A wonderful Wild West story about news, life, loss and guns.

Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd escorts an orphan into the heart of Texas. Based on a real life veteran reading newspapers to support himself and the stories of children once abducted by Native Americans, News of the World reads like poetry and has a memorable gun battle where I can still feel the bullets ricocheting off the wagon.
