Overview

“Johnson’s nicely crafted novel follows the fate of three Confederates who end up with the gold from a shipment of cotton.” — Dallas Morning News

“Brasada is a real page-turner that has everything a fan of western fiction could ask for.” — Read The West

“It's an inspiration to any budding western writer. Great story, great characters and fascinating history.” — Jerry Patterson, author

Lance Morgan wants to build a land and cattle empire that will dwarf what the carpetbaggers took from him back in Tennessee. He is opposed by bandits, crooked officials, often the elements, and sometimes his own friends and family.

Arabelea Cruz is the beautiful and talented owner of a Mexican cantina. She gives Lance his first taste of tender and passionate love.

He later meets Colleen MacDuff, lovely and vivacious, she has her own goals and priorities, and they sometimes don’t mesh with Lance’s plans.

George Gibson is a Tennessee backwoodsman, he usually defers to Lance. But he shows he can have a stubborn mind of his own when it comes to right and wrong.

Santiago, the vicious bandit chief, becomes a powerful force in the region, and he has sworn eternal hatred for Lance and his family.

The former family slave, Mike Morgan, adjusts to life as a free man when he must make his own decisions. He shows Lance that loyalty can be freely given — but never forced.
