NOT YOUR GRANDFATHER'S WESTERN: Humorous, Americana Filled, Western Action Epic with Strong Underlying Love Story...and his two best friends are horses.
"Those who brutally murdered a farming family in the 1800’s Dakota
Territory left a fourteen year old farm boy for dead in the field, that was a big mistake! They were not prepared for his kind of vengeance nor was he prepared for the hair-trigger temper of the red-headed Irish beauty he rescued in the process, and that's the first chapter...after that it gets exciting. Growing into a western man with a uniquely fast gun, Cormac Lynch backs down from no man...and only one woman. Separately together, they face the
dangers and anguish of living on the frontier with determination, horses, guns,
petticoats, and the humor of the times in this historically correct epic drama
well on the way to becoming "America's New Favorite Western Epic,"…
but hang on to your hat and enjoy the ride, it's not your grandfather's western.
..One reviewer said: “this is great storytelling that just happens to take
place in the American Wild West. It’s a coming of age saga with characters you
end up befriending by the end of the book. The Black Hills is the type
of book that will help revive the Western genre—good storytelling with a solid
plot, realistic dialogue, and characters the reader cares about."
