Three-legged Horse: A Justin Bodean Western

Three-legged Horse: A Justin Bodean Western
Hall, Russ, 1949-

Heading into the Wild West seems an adventure to fifteen-year-old Justin Bodean, until the bullets and arrows begin to fly. Life or death often hangs by a ragged thread, as he soon comes to realize, and he must find if he has the grit to survive and the courage to think of others. The lure of a treasure of Civil War gold drives him, and he has a map. But he's not alone in wanting the hidden stash. Others, some who seem to be friends and some who are clearly not, want the same thing. Out here, where fortunes can be grabbed by the strongest and quickest, he has a lot to learn. And he's going to have to learn fast if he wants to be sixteen.

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.

Once More Into the Breech

Once More Into the Breech
Brandvold, Peter

"When Doctor Clyde Evans is kidnapped from his home in the middle of the night to tend a wounded outlaw, Sheriff Ben Stillman's problems are only just beginning. Stillman tracks the doctor to a remote cabin deep in the Two Bear Mountains. He springs the doctor, shoots the outlaws, and confiscates the bank loot. He also arrests a beautiful young outlaw, Hettie Styles, who promptly puts a bounty on Stillman's head. While Stillman waits for the sheriff from Sulfur to come for the stolen money and Hettie, he walks warily. All he needs is another bullet in his back. Compounding his problems, his old foe Jacob Henry Battles rides into town with a steel hook replacing the arm Stillman shot off years ago before sending Battles to prison. Dying from consumption, Battles was recently let out of Deer Lodge Pen. He says he's in town merely to settle down, but after a shot is fired into Stillman's house in the middle of the night, the sheriff thinks Battles is out for revenge. Meanwhile, Doc Evans must navigate more personal torments when young Evelyn Vincent, the waitress from Sam Wa's Café, professes her love for the older sawbones only weeks before Evans is due to be married to the Widow Kemmett! As we've come to expect from Peter Brandvold, king of the fast-action, sexy, hard-hitting western novel, it's all here -- love and death, bullets and blood. "--Provided by publisher.

Thunder Over the Superstitions: Rogue Lawman : A Gideon Hawk Western

Thunder Over the Superstitions: Rogue Lawman : A Gideon Hawk Western
Brandvold, Peter

Gideon Hawk hunts the depraved outlaw Pima Miller into the Superstition Mountains of Arizona Territory. Hawk inadvertently shot Miller's woman, but the killer doesn't seem to mind. He leaves his infant son behind and heads into the mountains with his beautiful young guide, Jodi Zimmerman, who he's kidnapped from the Superstition Stage Relay Station. Hawk, however, minds very much that his bullet meant for Miller struck an innocent woman. He storms after Miller with his usual blood lust. But the Superstitions are no picnic. The Apaches call the range their Thunder God's abode, and the Chiricahuas don't care for interlopers. And neither does the strange old desert rat known as the Dutchman, who will do everything he can to keep his secret stash of ancient Apache gold a secret.
