Judge's comments from the 2011 Best Books of Indiana Literary competition:
For the second-consecutive year, Larry D. Sweazy delighted Best Books of Indiana judges with his latest addition to the Josiah Wolfe series. The Scorpion Trail, while a traditional and gritty western novel, sets itself apart in the genre due to Sweazy's deft storytelling and historical accuracy. It was a joy to watch the further development Josiah Wolfe's character throughout his new adventures in The Scorpion Trail, which truly compliments Sweazy's previous novel The Rattlesnake Season. While The Scorpion Trail stands very well on its own, reading the books in tandem is recommended for a truly great western experience.
Sweazy's The Rattlesnake Season, was only the second western novel ever selected as a finalist for the Best Books of Indiana competition. The Scorpion Trail now becomes the first western to win the competition. Both recognitions are testament to the supreme quality of Sweazy's Josiah Wolfe series, which are not simply great westerns, but great novels of fiction.
