Elmore Leonard – Valdez Is Coming (1970) "Elmore Leonard began his career writing westerns. It was near the end of the film version of ‘Out of Sight’ that I realised he has been writing them ever since. Western plots, that is, he just varies the location and the age in which it is set. ‘Valdez is Coming’ is both a worthy book and a great read, bristling with the rightly acclaimed Leonard dialogue. His social conscience encourages him to take on risky subjects and here he tackles racist attitudes. Valdez is an ex army scout adept at tracking Apaches and former leader of the Apache scouts for General Crook in the Geronimo campaign.
