Cape Hell

Cape Hell
Estleman, Loren D.

U.S. Deputy Page Murdock is ordered by Federal Judge Harlan A. Blackthorne to Cape Hell, Mexico, to verify a report that former Confederate Captain Oscar Childress is raising an army to take over Mexico City--and then intends to turn north to rekindle the Civil War. Childress, it seems, has the weapons, wealth, and moral compass to do it. Unable to talk himself out of the mission, Murdock heads south on a steam train named "El Espanto"--The Ghost. With only Hector Cansado, an engineer who can't be trusted and Joseph, a Native American fireman with a few secrets of his own, Murdock hurtles through the murderous desert of a foreign land toward a man bent on wholesale massacre--unless Murdock can stop him.

Bone Digger

Bone Digger
Hirt, Douglas

"Eons past, an ancient creature the size of a bunkhouse lived out a solitary life and died all alone in a rugged canyon. Millennia later that canyon occupied an isolated corner of C.L. McSween's Rocking S. Ranch. Then McSween decided to dam up the canyon to provide water for his cattle. When a paleontologist from back east discovers the cache of bones from this long-dead Jurassic monster, he realizes they are a priceless treasure trove. C.L. McSween and his daughter Libby don't see it that way. They're concerned only about ensuring the survival of their cattle. On top of that, McSween is a superstitious ex-mountain man. He considers the bone digger a grave robber and wants him off his ranch. To Chad Larimer, foreman of the Rocking S. Ranch, Cobsworth's discovery is nothing more than a bunch of old cow bones until strangers from back east show up desperate to get their hands on them. Among the Easterners is the infamous paleontologist Professor O.C. Marsh. Marsh wants the bones for his museum and is prepared to have them at any cost. He's brought hired guns with him, and whoever gets between him and those bones is going to die. Unfortunately, Chad is the man in the middle."--cover.

Cattle Kate: A Novel

Cattle Kate: A Novel
Bommersbach, Jana

Cattle Kate is the only woman ever lynched as a cattle rustler. History called it 'range land justice' when she was strung up in Wyoming Territory on July 20, 1889, tarring her as a dirty thief and a filthy whore. But history was wrong. It was all a lie. Her real name was Ella Watson. She wasn't a rustler. She wasn't a whore. And she'd never been called Cattle Kate until she was dead and they needed an excuse. She was really a 29-year-old immigrant homesteader, lynched with her husband by her rich and powerful cattle-baron neighbors who wanted her land and its precious water rights. Some people knew the truth from the start. Their voices were drowned out by the all-powerful Wyoming Stock Growers Association. And those who dared speak out, including the eyewitnesses to the hangings, either disappeared or mysteriously died. There was no one left to testify against the vigilantes when the case eventually came to trial. Her six killers walked away scot-free. But the legend was stronger than the truth.

Charlie Red

Charlie Red
Zimmer, Michael, 1955-

"Tom Slade is riding shotgun for the Colorado and Prescott Stagecoach Company, in charge of delivering 5,000 in cash to the mines in central Arizona, when the stage is robbed at an isolated way station. Most men would have gone on to Prescott for help, but Slade knows he doesn't have that kind of time if he hopes to catch up with the thieves before they disappear into the desert. Alone and riding a worn-out harness mule, Slade grimly sets off in pursuit. He realizes it's going to take every ounce of skill and perseverance he s got to recover the mine payroll and bring the bandits to justice. What he hadn't counted on was a woman named Claire Adams showing up in the middle of the desert with her own reason for tracking down the outlaw gang, or the influence of her mysterious friend, Charlie Red." -- Amazon.com.
