Overview

A man and a boy, each damaged by loss in different ways, come together by chance on the Texas ranch belonging to beautiful widow Helen Logan. A Kiowa raiding party has wiped out the family of ex-army scout Clint Slater, leaving him hardened and disengaged from others; the boy, known only as Cant, born to a prostitute mother lost in morphine addiction, has fled his degraded life as a whorehouse errand-boy. Helen Logan and her well-watered range are coveted by neighboring cattleman Print Boatwright who commands a crew of rustlers and hired gunmen. When Boatwright recruits a mysterious killer named Santiago to seal his conquest, Slater is forced to act. Cant, longing for the father he has never known, must choose between Slater's principled resolution and the strangely compelling evil of Santiago.

Meet the Author

Charles F. Price is the author of seven published novels (includes Above the Caprock) and one nonfiction work forthcoming in Spring 2013 entitled Season of Terror: The Espinosas in Central Colorado, March – October, 1863 (University Press of Colorado). Vengeance on the Sweetgrass is Price’s sixth novel and 1st published Western. Price's fifth novel is Nor the Battle to the Strong: A Novel of the American Revolution in the South (Frederick C. Beil, Savannah, GA, 2008), an account of a crucial but unjustly neglected military campaign in South Carolina during the summer of 1781.

Price also wrote the Hiwassee Series, four works of historical fiction set in his native Western North Carolina, comprising a single narrative cycle interweaving the partly imagined private history of his 19th-century ancestors with the public history of the Southern Appalachians.

Charles F. Price writes historical fiction about ordinary people confronted by extraordinary events in the past. He is interested in history not simply for its own sake, but as it sheds light on the problems and issues of today.
