Top 10 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:
Jericho’s Road. By Elmer Kelton

The sixth book in Kelton’s wonderful Texas Ranger series about the development of the Lone Star State during the turbulent 1800s deftly uses characters from past entries while folding in new personalities. This is arguably the best ongoing western series in the genre today.
