Trail's End
by Aaron Kruse Rating: 1.0

Tim Farrell is a survivor. From behind-the-lines raiding for the Union Army to fighting Comanche in Texas, he does whatever is necessary to win, however distasteful. When he left it all behind and went back to farming, he hoped to find peace, but a man can’t leave his memories behind.

Homesteading in Colorado, Tim fights claim jumpers, Indians, corrupt miners, and Mother Nature, and beats them all. But guilt isn’t so easy to defeat. A lost love isn’t easy to forget. His only real friend is a disenchanted, wise-cracking priest who wonders what torments his friend but doesn’t know how to help.

Emma Rogers is a survivor, too. But 14 years with a drunken, self-serving gambler have worn her hopes away. When she arrives in Chigger-Be-Gone with a lame horse, a broken wagon, and two starving children, she has none left. The first storm of the winter threatens, and her gambler lies dead a half-day’s travel back with an arrow in his chest. The village priest wants to help, but frontier towns exist on the edge. Where do you find charity when survival itself is in question?

Stalking Hawk rides and raids for the honor of the Jicarilla Apache, killing the whites who have taken his people’s lands and their way of life. The elders reminisce about the days of their fathers and grandfathers, but they cannot see the future. They counsel caution and making an accord with the white enemy. The young brave rejects this path, and he and his friends return to the path of their ancestors, believing in this way they will lead their people back to greatness.

The fates of these and more will cross in the mountains of Colorado, and their futures will change forever.

Change comes at a price, sometimes a very high price.

Counting Coup: The Odyssey Of Captain Tom Adams
Counting Coup: The Odyssey Of Captain Tom Adams
by Bob Stockton Rating: 0.0

The story of the way west in the early nineteenth century was often a tale of danger, death and unspeakable suffering. The early trappers and mountain men forged the trails westward for the pioneers that followed and became part of the legend of the American West. Of this hardy breed of early adventurers one name stands out above the rest: Kit Carson. Many stories of his bravery, often wildly exaggerated filled eastern bookshelves of the day.

How much of what was written was true and how much was fantasy? Cavalry officer Captain Tom Adams vowed to seek the truth behind the legend and along the way faced near shipwrecks, attempted assassinations, Indian massacres, murder, and torture in an odyssey that he never believed would have been possible.

Fighting Bob
Fighting Bob
by Bob Stockton Rating: 0.0

Many have written novels about the lives and adventure of their ancestors but most are not retold directly by the ancestor himself. In the new novel Fighting Bob author Bob Stockton writes of the exciting life of his great-great-great grandfather, Commodore Robert F. Stockton.

Once described by western frontiersman Kit Carson as “the bravest of the brave,”
The Commodore’s achievements in the first half of the nineteenth century have, in his own opinion, been misinterpreted by history and his true story needs to be retold by someone with a sense of a life at sea. Under a bizarre set of circumstances the Commodore visits his descendant author and tasks him with writing the corrected history of ‘Fighting Bob’s’ many accomplishments.

“I have chosen you for this mission……”

Those words, spoken by the Commodore to his convalescing descendant begin an accounting of epic battles, duels, hand to hand fighting and military conquest covering the first half of the nineteenth century which redrew the map the map of the United States. As the Commodore’s tale unfolds the author, who was at first reluctant to embrace the task, becomes increasingly excited with the prospect of retelling the Commodore’s story in his - the Commodore’s - own words.
