Cimarron Jordan
Matt Braun

On the western plains, they forged a friendship in courage...and ended it in blood.

From Abilene to the Smoky Hill country, they fought and hunted side by side. And when they went their separate ways, each knew they would meet again.

Cimarron Jordan built a town in Texas, carved a trail to Kansas, and battled the Comanche in the Staked Plains. Virge Hollister made his career with a badge and a gun. Now, on the streets of Dodge City, the two legends of the fierce plains would come face-to-face again-- as the deadliest of enemies.

Meet the Author

Matt Braun is a fourth-generation Westerner, steeped in the tradition and lore of the frontier era. His books reflect a heritage rich with the truths of that bygone time. Raised among the Cherokee and Osage tribes, Braun learned their traditions and culture, and their philosophy became the foundation of his own beliefs. Like his ancestors, he has spent most of his life wandering the mountains and plains of the West. His heritage and his contribution to Western literature resulted in his appointment by the Governor of Oklahoma as a Territorial Marshal.

Braun is the author of more than forty novels and four nonfiction works, including BLACK FOX, which was made into a CBS miniseries, and ONE LAST TOWN, which was made into a TNT movie called YOU KNOW MY NAME. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Golden Spur Award for THE KINCAIDS. He is also the recipient of the Cowboy Spirit Award and was inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame in 1999.

Probably the best western novel I have ever read... and reread... and read again. The characters are richly illustrated, the story is classic, and he language is authentic and every bit as colorful as Mark Twain's ever was. Matt Braun can tell a story like no other western writer. If you have not yet indulged in this style of fiction, Cimmaron Jordan is the perfect introduction to the genre. If you are a fan of Western novels, but have not--hard to believe--read Matt Braun, you are in for a very special treat. Rather than give you a brief synopsis of this tale of the days of the buffalo hunters, I will simply encourage you to taste and enjoy this very special book.
