Review of "Nixon and Dovey"
Young Nixon Curry learns to shoot and ride with his Pa's guidance and he becomes accomplished at both. Curry dreams of winning the Governor's Cup, building a stable of his own and breeding thoroughbreds. But the high-strung Curry makes enemies along the way who challenge his resolve and his friendship with Cyrus, a young Negro boy. He meets the love of his life, Dovey, a senator's daughter who is betrothed to Ben Wilson, an enemy. When his Negro friend is beaten almost to death, Curry tries to save him, but he dies at the hand of another. Curry faces charges of murder when he kills Ben who he suspects killed Cyrus. He marries Dovey inspite of the senator, but he continues to be prosecuted until another enemy kills Dovey. Curry is now alone and on the run from the law. 5 Stars
