A man bent on revenge. A woman determined to survive. A land that knows no mercy. WELCOME TO THE OUTLAW TRAIL. When Kate Winters is left stranded in outlaw country, she knows she won't make it out alive...until she stumbles across a ruthless gang hanging a cowboy for his cattle. She waits until the outlaws are gone, desperate enough to claim the dead man's horse to make her escape—only to realize he's not dead after all. Those outlaws should have made damn sure Luke Bowden was good and gone. Now he vows he'll have his revenge no matter the cost. But they're miles away from the nearest town, and the woman who saved his hide won't survive the ride back. He owes her his life—he owes her everything—and it doesn't take long before he's faced with a choice: stand by his savior...or claim his revenge? All the best western historical novels are full of: brave heroes and romantic outlaws, gunfights and a desperate bid for survival, a dusty trail and a land that stretches on to meet the horizon...

From where he stood, it was an easy kill. A couple seconds of well placed rifle shots, fired in quick succession, would easily take them all out. Moreover, with his Henry rifle and its seventeen rounds, that would be no problem...no problem at all. Ira made a conscious decision that he was not going to even try to bring all of them in alive. Concerning the ambush back in Moose Creek Station, Ira only required one prisoner to glean information from. He did not care about the others. Sure, he would give them opportunity to give themselves up. However, he would have the first outlaw stacked up on the front sight of his rifle barrel before he put forth the offer. A second target would already be designated before the first kill shot was made. At the first sign of resistance, Ira would drop him. Then he would swing the Henry to his right and onto the second target. It would all be over within a few seconds. He peered out from around the right side of a large fir-tree. That position gave him freedom and flexibility of movement to swing the Henry with little or no exposure to himself. He quietly pulled back the hammer and lined up for an upper body shot of his first target. He calmly called out, "No one move." It was as he suspected. They all fervently began scratching for iron. With the exception of the lookout, all of their rifles were still in their saddle scabbards. Ira dropped the outlaw he had previously had a bead on. He levered in another round as he swung the Henry to the right. With precision accuracy, he shot and killed the second outlaw with a bullet to the chest. The third outlaw, while sipping a cup of hot coffee, stopped midway and threw up his hands just as Ira levered another round into the chamber.

An English royal melts the heart of a lonesome ranch girl in this Americana romance set in the Roughrider State from the New York Times–bestselling author. At twenty-one, Katherine “Kit” Bonner is the de facto manager of the Flying Eagle Ranch in the badlands of North Dakota. For three generations, the Bonners have tended the land and its cattle on behalf of its absentee owners—a family of English barons who seem to be more of a myth than anything else. So Kit is taken by surprise when the current baron, Reese Talbot, shows up announced. Deceived by his American accent, Kit mistakes Reese for a salesman and tries to send him packing. He, in turn, can’t quite tell if the grimy, shapeless figure on horseback is a man or a woman. But Kit is in for an even bigger surprise when she realizes that her madding, yet undeniably gorgeous, new boss is planning to stay at the ranch long-term. As Reese attempts to pierce Kit’s tough exterior, he begins to win her grudging respect—and to thaw the ice surrounding her high lonesome heart.

A darkly comic, fiercely tragic, and strikingly original odyssey into contemporary American life by “the Jimi Hendrix of American short fiction” (Interview). The thirteen masterful tales in this collection by the award-winning author of Airships and Bats Out of Hell explore lost moments in time with intensity, emotion, and an eye to the past. In “Uncle High Lonesome,” a young man recalls an uncle’s drinking binges and the rage unleashed, hinting at dark waters of distress. Fishing is transformed into a life-altering, almost mystical event in “A Creature in the Bay of St. Louis.” And in “Snerd and Niggero,” a deep friendship between two men is inspired by the loss of a woman they both loved. Viewed through memory and time’s distance, Barry Hannah’s characters are brightly illuminated figures from a lost time, whose occasionally bleak lives are still uncommonly true. “Barry Hannah’s writing is raw and exhilarating, tortured, radiant, vicious, aggressive, funny, and streaked with rage, pain and bright poetic truth.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer on Airships

Cody Winters, a former lawman and most recently a trapper in the rugged northern wilderness of Arizona, was headed for Camp Wood—a town where he hoped to settle down and begin a new life for himself. He would soon learn that strangers were not always welcomed in Camp Wood. Those that stayed too long typically ended up at the undertakers. From the moment he rode into town, he fell under the critical sharp-eyed gaze of the always ruthless and often corrupt town marshal. As Cody rode up the street, he fell under the curious blue-eyed gaze of another set of eyes as well. They belonged to Miss Holly Granger, the beautiful daughter of a prosperous cattle rancher. The rancher’s daughter and the former lawman would soon meet and, from that moment on, see their lives swept away toward an unforeseen adventure, and with it ... hidden danger at every turn. “This riveting story of the Old West is packed with adventure, danger, old-fashion frontier justice, and steamy romance.” —the Author

BLOOD IN THE DUST The open West was a land where wanderers could find themselves a home—a home to fight for, to be changed by, sometimes to die for. Jed Asbury was one such journeyman, taking on the identity of a dead man. Allen Ring was another: He’d won his plot of land in a card game only to find he had to win again with a gun. From a has-been boxer to a ranch hand taking on his bosses’ troubles, the characters in these classic Louis L’Amour short stories are all “riding for the brand”—staying loyal to what matters, staking the West with their courage and their blood.

The story was that Eli Patterson had died in a gunfight, but Mike Shevlin knew it couldn’t be true: the man who’d been like a father to him had been a Quaker. But when Shevlin rides back to Rafter Crossing to uncover the truth, he finds that the quiet ranching community has become a booming mining town. Newfound wealth has not made Rafter a peaceful place, however, and the smell of fear and greed is thick in the air. As Mike Shevlin tries to unravel the mystery of Patterson’s death, he is led deeper and deeper into a conspiracy that controls not only the fate of Rafter Crossing but the heart of a beautiful but tormented young woman—and Shevlin’s own destiny.

This updating of our previous title, The Point Where All Things Meet, which Tom Andrews edited in 1994, selects from the contents of that earlier book and adds many new essays that have appeared in the interim. The result is a complex and generous survey of Charles Wright's "trilogy of trilogies," the sweeping project encompassed in the selected volumes comprised by Country Music (1982), The World of the Ten Thousand Things (1990), and Negative Blue (2000).

Ninety years ago the Toomey brothers, along with twenty-five other men and four thousand head of cattle, vanished en route to Arizona. When writer and historian Dan Sheridan is invited to the missing brothers’ ranch by its current owner, he jumps at the chance. The visit fits right in with his plan to solve the century-old mystery—but it turns out that his host isn’t a fan of books, writers, or people who don’t mind their own business. Soon Dan is living the dangers of the Old West firsthand—tracked through the savage wilderness by vicious killers straight out of the most violent pages of his stories. However, his enemies have made one serious mistake: Sheridan is no pencil-pushing greenhorn, and killing him won’t be as easy as they think.

Rafe Caradec—gambler, wanderer, soldier of fortune—was as hard a man as the battlefields and waterfronts of Latin America could fashion, but he was as good as his word. As Charles Rodney lay dying in a dank ship’s fo’c’sle, Rafe swore to make sure that Rodney’s Wyoming ranch went to his daughter, Ann. In Painted Rock, Wyoming, Caradec found land for a man to love, miles of rolling grasslands and towering mountains. He also found that one of the most ruthless men in the territory had set his sights on both Rodney’s ranch and his daughter. But Rafe Caradec had given his word, and once he’d looked deep into Ann Rodney’s eyes, nothing short of death would stop him from keeping the promise he’d made.

FROM AMERICA’S STORYTELLER: A TREASURY OF HIS GREAT DETECTIVE STORIES Here is a collection of Louis L’Amour detective stories—vivid tales as memorable and exciting as his beloved frontier fiction. Each story is personally selected and introduced by the author. In the dark alleys of the pulsing cities and the savage criminal wildernesses, Louis L’Amour introduces a new brand of characters: men like Kip Morgan, the ex-fighter turned detective who is tough enough to bounce a bouncer yet has more up his sleeve than sheer muscle; Joe Ragan, the dedicated career cop who fears nothing in the pursuit of justice; and women whose soft laughter covers their underlying cruelty. These are fast-moving stories of brawls where if a man goes down and doesn’t get up fast enough he’s through, of flashing knives that whisper death, of guns that blaze their fatal fire through the blackest nights.

It was just a godforsaken mountainside, but no place on earth was richer in silver. For a bustling, enterprising America, this was the great bonanza. The dreamers, the restless, the builders, the vultures—they were lured by the glittering promise of instant riches and survived the brutal hardships of a mining camp to raise a legendary boom town. But some sought more than wealth. Val Trevallion, a loner haunted by a violent past. Grita Redaway, a radiantly beautiful actress driven by an unfulfilled need. Two fiercely independent spirits, together they rose above the challenges of the Comstock to stake a bold claim on the future.

Smoke From This Altar, a book that has become legendary among Louis L'Amour readers, is the very first book L'Amour ever published. It appeared, to great critical praise, for sale only in Oklahoma bookstores more than fifty years ago. Since then it has become the most sought-after L'Amour title of all, with the few circulating copies from the small print run commanding top dollar from rare book collectors. Now, at last, it is being published nationally in this beautiful keepsake Bantam edition. It was in Smoke From This Altar that L'Amour first gave public voice to his now-celebrated spirit of wanderlust. Like the short stories in his classic, million-copy-selling Yondering, and his best-selling memoir Education of a Wandering Man, the poems in this book are inspired by his experiences and memories of his journeys across oceans and continents. It is vintage L'Amour storytelling--in verse--about nature, the land, and the people who loved and braved it. Smoke From This Altar begins with a newly written introduction by his wife Kathy in which she discusses the special place this work has held in the L'Amours' lives. In concludes with twenty previously uncollected L'Amour poems selected by his family. Impassioned, adventurous, heroic, and humorous, Smoke From This Altar is unique L'Amour writing, to be read and enjoyed again and again.
