On Cimarron

On Cimarron
Lederer, Paul Joseph

"As weary settlers begin to infiltrate the Kansas area, a young family of pilgrims settles on a lower stretch of the Cimarron River. Elizabeth O'Day and her husband, Tom, virtually alone in the wilderness, have been told that the area is safe for whites. However, they soon discover a band of Kiowa Indians, their mood uncertain, living nearly across the river from where they plan to build a home. An uneasy peace endures between the people on each side of the river, and the two groups manage a sort of wary interaction. Until the War Between the States erupts nearly simultaneously with the long-standing conflict between Comanche and Kiowa and the winds of bloody war sweep across the Cimarron land from every direction."--Provided by publisher.

The Range War of '82

The Range War of '82
Wolfe, Ethan J.

Wyoming is on the brink of statehood. Leading the charge is Jefferson Parker, the richest cattle baron in the territory. Backed by the Cattlemen's Association, Parker knows that the quickest way to achieve the goal of statehood is through the cattle business. Standing in Parker's way is a group of farmers who, by their very existence, threaten the open range and the way to statehood. So Parker offers to buy out all the farmers in the territory. His offer is rebuked. Leading the farmers is the Johansen family. James Johansen, his wife Sarah and their young son Seth are determined to make a go of their small farm. James bands the farmers into a unified group and they hold off Parker and his allies. Until the mysterious gunfighter Cord arrives in town, hired by none other than Parker. Cord's assignment is to help Parker broker a deal with the farmers to buy out their land. Cord is as persuasive with words as he is with a gun, and the deal might have worked except for Parker's hotheaded son who interferes and forces Cord to kill him. Thus begins the range war. Farmers on one side, Parker on the other, Cord caught in the middle.

The Open Road

The Open Road
Holaday, M. M.

"After four years of adventure in the frontier, Win Avery returns to his hometown on the edge of the prairie and tracks down his childhood friend, Jeb Dawson. Jeb has just lost his parents, and, in his efforts to console him, Win convinces his friend to travel west with him -- to see the frontier before it is settled, while it is still unspoiled wilderness. They embark on a free-spirited adventure, but their journey sidetracks when they befriend Meg Jameson, an accomplished horsewoman, lost on the Nebraska prairie. Traveling together through the Rocky Mountain foothills, they run into Gray Wolf, an Arapaho determined to live on his own terms off the reservation. As their paths and purposes converge, the course of each of their lives changes forever. Although the open road continues to call to Win, and Meg moves forward with her plans to ranch with the aged liveryman who raised her, the bonds between the four friends tie their fates together through the decades that follow, as they fight the forces striving to close the frontier and as they witness a way of life disappear."--Provided by publisher.
