Abstract:

"'The Texan Buys a Gun-Bride' is a powerful historical tale set in the Republic of Texas in 1841. Rich in the lore and language of the period, it features a fiddle-playing, bullwhip-wielding hero caught up in land squabbles and land fraud among ranches, cavalrymen, and a group of feisty Scottish emigrants. Oregon's rough-and-tumble Rogue River mining country is the scene of 'Whiskey Creek Stampeders, ' the chronicle of one man's struggles to compete against an overland freight line by building a fleet of ore-carring boats to run on the tempestuous Rogue. The locale of 'Bonanza Railroad' is Nevada's rich silver mining country, the time 1847, and the central story ingredient a partnership between a rancher turned miner, a high-balling railroad man, and the daughter of a refining company owner to build a sixteen mile shortling railroad between Virginia City mines and smelters on the Carson River. 'Cowman-on-the-Spot' tells the action-packed story of a violent war between cattlemen and lumbermen in Wyoming's Wind River region. A Tex-Mex border yarn set in the years shortly after the Civil War, 'Dakota Man' concerns an ex-Union soldier's purchase of 2,000 head of longhorn cattle, the pitfalls of cowhands at work in the hars Mexican brasada, and a band of gun-running former Rebel sympathizers."--
