Kent Conwell’s enthusiasm for reading and writing was spurred by his upbringing in the tiny Texas town of Wheeler, population 848. With little else to occupy his mind in the middle of empty, rolling prairies, Conwell began conjuring up tales to bring a sense of adventure into his life and then to share it with others. Today, Conwell has produced dozens of westerns that tap into the nation’s pioneer spirit, and mysteries that combine deadly consequences with quirky characters, such as his Tony Boudreaux mystery series. As a teacher, he continues to expound on his love for America’s Old West period. He lives in Port Neches, Texas, with his wife.

When Clay Morgan and his sidekick Twitch Mabry rode out of Texas for Kansas City to pick up Clay's orphaned nephew and niece, they planned to make the return trip in the debatable comfort of a stagecoach.
They had no idea their return journey would be in a covered wagon, and that they would be saddled with a schoolmarm named Bill smuggling $25,000 into Texas; not to mention a niece who refused to talk and a nephew who would hire a cowpoke to clean Clay's plow. An attack by a renegade band of Comanche and Choctaw Indians who were driven off with the help of Frank Fivekiller of the Cherokee Lighthorse fuels the fire on this wild ride; in addition to a betrayal by Clay's best friend who wounded Clay and stole the $25,000.
