Haints Stay

Haints Stay
Winnette, Colin

Brooke and Sugar are contract killers without a contract. Bird is the 13-year-old boy who mysteriously appears in their camp one night, with no memory and palms as smooth as stones. For miles, there is only desert and wilderness, and along the fringes, people. It's only a matter of time before the sheriffs will find them. Before the cannibals and stampedes and marauders will find them. Before the past will clamber up from where they buried it, covered in animals skins and teeth.

Dream Wheels

Dream Wheels
Wagamese, Richard

"Champion bull-rider Joe Willie Wolfchild is poised to win the most sought after title in rodeo when a devastating accident at the National Finals leaves his body and ambitions in tatters. Unsure of what else to do, he retires to the panoramic family ranch, Wolfcreek, to mend. Claire Hartley and her fifteen-year-old son Aiden have nearly been torn apart by abusive boyfriends and an unjust world when a friend sends them to the Wolfchild ranch. Thrown together by terrible circumstance, it appears Aiden and Joe Willie have more in common than their childhoods would suggest. After a rocky start, they strike a deal: Aiden will help Joe Willie repair his '34 Ford V8 pickup if the former champion teaches the city kid how to ride a bull. As Wagamese reveals their story, he rewrites the history of the American cowboy. In taut, muscular prose, Wagamese explores how independence, self-determination, and a return to cultural tradition can heal body, mind, and community"--Provided by publisher.

Shadow of A Hang Rope: A Western Story

Shadow of A Hang Rope: A Western Story
Paine, Lauran

"John Hawk was unemployed. His outriding job had ended at Vacaville in Arizona Territory. He has only 00, and isn't going anywhere until he makes more money. He overhears a conversation about a string of horses that are to be exchanged with a bill of sale at Hunter's Spring for a down payment of 00. Hawk seizes his chance, rides to Hunter's Spring, meets the man holding the horses, pretending he's the agent for the man buying the obviously stolen herd. In another town, he sells the horses for 00, making a considerable profit. He returns to Vacaville, hoping he is not connected with the stolen herd, where he assumes a job as gun guard on the Vacaville-Springerville stage and quickly gains a half interest in the line. Now good things are really in the offing for Hawk, but there is also an increasing threat from bad and dangerous things" --from publisher's web site.

Rodeo Ranch: A Western Duo

Rodeo Ranch: A Western Duo
Brand, Max, 1892-1944

"Doc Willis, despite the nickname, is just an unemployed cowboy in The Valley of Jewels. Daggett Valley holds many secrets from the past, including a now deserted mining camp. It is there that Buck Logan lures Willis with the promise of great riches to be gained. What Doc doesn't even suspect is that he is to play a part in a most subtle feat of deception in which an old man, William Daggett, will be conned into believing that he is reliving his past. Rodeo Ranch is so called because of the rodeos sponsored by Ramon Alvarez. When an attempt is made on Alvarez's life, a rodeo is held, but the only event that interests him is the shooting competition. The event is won by Duds Kobbe, who is hired to be Alvarez's body guard. What Kobbe doesn't realize is that he will be just as much a target as Alvarez. "--Provided by publisher.
