William T. Prince wrote 'The Legend of Sasquatch'. He included every womanizing-foul mouthed-whiskey-swilling-gun-toting-help-me-jesus moment he could cram into it. It must have been frantic sometimes; this is over-the-top crime writing done very well, and slows only at the page turns. He also transparently splatters it with so many of his own opinions, you could toss the book and it would land open to a page with three of 'em.

How William T. does all that hell-bent writing, without making his character a cartoon...well, that's just how it's done in Texas.

Clint sticks out everywhere he goes. He also sticks out in this text. He is not a hulk, looking for trouble. Clint is a kid, and a good one. That trouble following him is all too real. W.T. Prince keeps Clint so real, you would swear you went to high school with him. Read over any of the next four things that are garishly written and you will have pages of honesty. Clint is worth reading about. When you get to the chapter titled Absolution...you will know exactly what I mean.

If someone real inspired this story for Mr. Prince, I bet he misses that kid.

Bought this book yesterday and read it last night in one fell swoop. Once I got started I couldn't stop. Very compelling story and an excellent read at any price. Hopefully Prince will have a good followup. I'm counting on it.

Someone recently turned me onto this site, and I decided to check it out. The idea of "independent authors" didn't exactly turn me on, but the prices are cheap, so I figured I didn't have much to lose if I tried a couple. I stumbled onto "The Legend of Sasquatch" by William T. Prince because I was looking for a story set in Dallas, my childhood home. The synopsis sounded interesting, and I really liked the cover. It didn't look cheesy like so many of the others, and I liked the whole light/dark, good/bad motif. At a price of $2.99, I thought I'd give it a shot.

Suffice it to say that I wasn't disappointed. It was definitely the best book I ever read for the price. A lot of bang for the buck here. This is one of the more interesting character novels I've ever read, and the hero is very interesting. I got a very clear picture of what he looked like and more importantly what kind of person he was, and I like him a lot. The other characters are interesting too, and the action-packed plot really kept me turning the pages. Figuratively speaking of course, since this was an Ebook. I was a little shocked by the ending, and maybe a little disappointed too. But overall, I enjoyed the book immensely and I suspect that the author is planning a sequel. I hope so anyway. I'm not ready to let go of these characters.

In short, I loved this book and I highly recommend it to any adult reader who enjoys a good character study and unapologetic realism. A very, very good read that would also make a wonderful movie. If Hollywood hasn't already called the author, they will.

I really didn't expect much from this book. A friend who read the paperback version told me about it, and I was immediately suspicious because it was self-published. But given my friend's strong recommendation, I figured it was worth a 3-dollar risk. Boy, was I surprised! My friend was right, as were the two previous reviewers on this site. This is an exceptional story, a real "page turner" as folks like to say. It's definitely a gritty story, and parents shouldn't let their kids read it. And I'll admit that some of the adult material made me squirm a little, but it wasn't gratuitous. It was essential to the story and gave insight into the characters, and looking at the big picture, it added an important layer. I'm planning to buy a hard copy and read it again, and I have NO problem whatsoever recommending this incredible debut novel to anyone who can handle adult material, including language, violence, and sex. I love this incredible story!

Wow, great book! I read the Kindle version in one sitting. Just couldn't make myself stop. Hands down the best book I've read in years, maybe the best ever. Certainly the best 3 bucks I ever put into my Kindle. Buy this book and you won't be sorry!!!

Buck reviewed on April 20, 2010

Make no mistake about it--this is an EXCELLENT story! The main character, Clint "Buck Hannon," is a hero for the ages. The author develops Clint's character to the max, and although he's complicated and not completely "good," you just can't help but love the guy. Clint's supporting cast is also very appealing, particularly the barrel-chested narc, Hulk, and Clint's parent's, Doug and Lucy. Each character is well-developed and appealing in his or her own right, but none is clearly and completely good. The plot is also very compelling, and I just couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. There's a lot of exciting and realistic action sequences, as well as an interesting interracial romance. (There is some adult content--not for children!) All things considered, this is probably the best, page-turning story I've read in the last ten years. Prince is an author to be reckoned with, and I absolutely can't wait to read his next book. I hope it's a sequel!
