Western StoriesBook - 2006
""Blood Sky" deals with the effects of Nature's unpredictability on a small group of ranchers, when a protracted drought followed by an extended period of rain leads to frayed nerves and sudden violence. "The Contest" pits a determined hunter against a "bold and magnificent enemy," a vengeful buck he once wounded, in a powerful clash of wills. "The Far-Travelin' Man," published here for the first time, is a fine, off-trail character study of revenge and redemption set in the Tennessee hill country. In "Wildcat on the Prod," a hot-headed young Texas cowboy locks horns with a rival over the woman he loves and learns some hard lessons as a result. "Fight at Renegade Basin" concerns a horse trader's battle to keep his homestead ranch from the clutches of an unprincipled land baron, his efforts to solve the mysterious disappearance of $800 in cash, and his encounters with three volatile women" -- publisher website (October 2006).
