Flint

Flint
L'Amour, Louis, 1908-1988

Flint left the West at the age of seventeen, leaving behind a rootless past and a bloody trail of violence. In the East he became one of the wealthiest financiers in America -- and one of the most feared and hated. Now, suffering from incurable cancer, he has come back to New Mexico to die alone. But when an all-out range war erupts, Flint chooses to help Nancy Kerrigan, a local rancher. A cold-eyed speculator is setting up the land swindle of a lifetime, and Buckdun, a notorious assassin, is there to back his play. Flint alone can help Nancy save her ranch, with his cash, his connections -- and his gun. He still has his legendary will to fight. All he needs is a little time, and that's fast running out.

The Sacred Valley: A Rusty Sabin Story

The Sacred Valley: A Rusty Sabin Story
Brand, Max, 1892-1944

Born to white parents, Rusty Sabin was taken prisoner and raised by the Cheyennes, who know him now as Red Hawk, an admired leader and great warrior. When Sabin extracts two full bags of gold from along the creek of the Sacred Valley, a place that is holy to the Cheyennes, his intention is to spend half of it on improving the lot of the Cheyennes. The other half is for Maisry Lester, the girl he hopes to marry. Rusty and Standing Bull, a Cheyenne friend, are guests at the Lester cabin when Charlie Galway, a local frontiersman, tries to steal the sack of gold meant for Maisry, and is interrupted by her father. Galway kills Lester with Standing Bull's tomahawk, and then accuses him of the crime, setting the stage for a bloody confrontation between the settlers and the Indians.

The Big Rock Candy Mountain

The Big Rock Candy Mountain
Stegner, Wallace, 1909-1993

"Bo Mason, his wife, and his two boys live a transient life of poverty and despair. Drifting from town to town and from state to state, the violent, ruthless Bo seeks his fortune in the hotel business, in new farmland, and, eventually, in illegal rum-running throughout the treacherous back roads of the American Northwest. Based largely on his own childhood, Stegner has created a masterful, harrowing saga of a family trying to survive during the lean years of the early twentieth century. It is the conflict between the hardscrabble existence and Bo's pursuit of the frontier myth and of the American Dream that gives the book such resonance and power"--Container.
