Overview

When Kentuckian Riley Stokes and Texan Cass McCasland join together and head to the frontier they are bound to encounter the best and the worst, and enlist in some of the greatest adventures known to the west. The two misfits agree to guard an Army paywagon that’s headed for Fort Dodge, but when a half-Chinese, half-Kiowa squaw needs help rescuing her sister from whiskey runners who have destroyed her tribe, their loyalties change. The adventure continues for them but with trouble on their tail they must move swiftly to save the girl, the tribe and themselves.

In the original novel in The Gents series, self-styled gentlemen Riley Stokes and Cass McCasland get a job protecting a shipment of Army gold. When they run into a crew of whiskey men who kill any Indians who get in their way--and some who don't--Stokes and McCasland go above and beyond the call of duty to help a squaw find her kidnapped sister.

Meet the Author

Bruce H. Thorstad was born in Minneapolis just a mile west of the Mississippi River, making him, at least by one common yardstick, a native-born Westerner. Growing up in the northern Wisconsin towns in the 1950’s and ‘60’s his imagination was fueled by the dozens of TV westerns of that era. “Northern Wisconsin is big-woods country…it’s not the West, but it’s relatively unpopulated. I couldn’t look at a hill or a hayfield without mentally populating it with stampeding buffalo or attacking cavalry.” Thorstad concedes he “played cowboys long after it became uncomfortable to admit it, after most neighboring kids had switched to baseball and football. “In a way,” he says, “I’m still at it.” Thorstad lives with his wife and children in Orange County, California, where he is the editor of OFF DUTY America, a nationwide general-interest military magazine. As “Paydirt,” his nineteenth-century alter ego, he’s a two-time winner of End of Trail, the largest of the annual Old West shooting competition…giving him an insider’s knowledge that makes this and his other "Gents" novels so thrillingly authentic.
