Of ashes and dust / Marc Graham.

He's fought Yankee and Pawnee, fought for the love of two very different women, fought for his very survival. Now, as the scenes of his life flash before him, his greatest struggle is about to begin. Wounded in a railroad explosion, Jim reviews those moments that shaped him. From the inequities of the Antebellum South, to the horrors of the American Civil War, to the juggernaut of westward expansion, he played his part in the events that forged a nation -- and not always for the better. In his debut novel, Marc Graham explores what it is that defines a life. Is there meaning and purpose, or is it all just a series of accidents? Is a man simply the victim of circumstance, or maker of his own destiny? Perhaps most important, do his choices and actions survive him, or is his life but a stirring of ashes and dust?"-- Provided by publisher.

The work is carried out by a ruthless, ultra-secret crime syndicate using an enigmatic beauty hired to beguile unsuspecting bankers while passing the bogus paper. The Texas & Pacific Railroad turns to Pinkerton to stop the fraud while victimized banks retain the Great Western Detective League to recover their losses. Colonel David J. Crook assigns the case to ace operatives Briscoe Cane and Beau Longstreet. Pinkerton partner Reginald Kingsley is joined by seductively talented agent Samantha Maples in a pursuit that races across the west and southwest, riding the rails from one exciting encounter to the next.

Syndicate muscle resorts to ambush and assassination in a desperate attempt to stop their pursuers from foiling the plot. Nothing will stop them, including terminating their own bogus bondsman.--Provided by Amazon.com.

cover image"Yellow Boy, Killer of Witches, returns wounded from a cat-and-mouse chase and rifle duel with Blood of the Devil, the giant Mexican-Comanche witch whose head is painted like a skull, his body covered with black spiral and flame tattoos. The witch, also wounded, disappears into the dry plains across the Rio Grande, knowing the Apache he left bleeding in the sand will one day reappear. With the Army occupation ended Yellow Boy, Juanita, their new baby daughter, and his Mescalero band return to the reservation. Better days come with the arrival of a strong but fair Indian agent, W.H.H. Llewellyn, who the Mescaleros call "Tata Crooked Nose." Yellow Boy joins Llewellyn's tribal police, and for a time becomes an Army Scout participating in General Crook's Sierra Madre Campaign returning Apaches to the San Carlos Reservation. He finds and faces Blood of the Devil, but later loses his daughter to pneumonia sweeping the reservation. Warned of his destiny by Geronimo, he dreams of a young boy he will one day save from murder. Blood of the Devil, Book 2 of the Life and Times of Yellow Boy, Mescalero Apache, continues Killer of Witches's powerful story; truth told with fiction that transports the reader to a different background, culture, history, time, and religion. It is the other side of Apache history lived by a people fighting the tsunami of Americans migrating west and the terrors of their supernatural insights as their White Eye overseers attempt to change their culture"-- Provided by publisher.

Traveling in a brightly colored wagon, he sells chemical concoctions and steeply priced contraptions to any and all who attend his medicine shows. When he arrives in the small town of Barbrady, Kansas, Henry Whiteoak also shows his talents in a fight and a mind that's sharper than a stiletto. While Whiteoak may be a swindler, he is not one to turn away from those who are in need of help. After all, if the gunmen who've also found their way to Barbrady kill off too many of its citizens, there will be even fewer pigeons for him to pluck. Lyssa and Byron Keag get to witness firsthand the troubles plaguing their town and soon realize that a conniving salesman isn't the worst of the bunch. In fact, if the real threat comes from some of the town's most upstanding citizens, someone like Professor Whiteoak may be the only cure for what ails Barbrady. Once the wheels of a violent scheme begin to turn and blood starts to spill on the streets of Barbrady, Henry Whiteoak quickly finds himself in a situation where simply riding away is no longer an option. Beneath the silver-tongued professor's fancy clothes lies a silver-handled .38 and a firm resolve. Could that be enough to survive the scheme that's set to put everyone in Barbrady onto their backs?"-- Provided by publisher.

The vengeance of mothers : the journals of Margaret Kelly & Molly McGill / Jim Fergus.

  • 13 September 2017
cover image"9 March 1876 My name is Meggie Kelly and I take up this pencil with my twin sister, Susie. We have nothing left, less than nothing. The village of our People has been destroyed. Empty of human feeling, half-dead ourselves, all that remains of us intact are hearts turned to stone. We curse the U.S. government, we curse the Army, we curse the savagery of mankind, white and Indian alike. We curse God in his heaven. Do not underestimate the power of a mother's vengeance . . . . So begins the journal of Margaret Kelly, a woman who participated in the government's "Brides for Indians" program in 1873, a program whose conceit was that the way to peace between the United States and the Cheyenne Nation was for One Thousand White Women to be given as brides in exchange for three hundred horses. Mostly fallen women, the brides themselves thought it was simply a chance at freedom. But many fell in love with the Cheyenne spouses and had children with them . . . and became Cheyenne themselves. THE VENGEANCE OF MOTHERS explores what happens to the bonds between wives and husbands, children and mothers, when society sees them as "unspeakable." Jim Fergus brings to light a time and place and fills it with unforgettable characters who live and breathe with a passion we can relate to even today" -- Provided by publisher.
