Overview

In a land of long red sunsets, Clint and Virgil Brannock had carved out a sweeping cattle spread along the lush banks of the Rio Hondo. But now Clint has been called away to fight in the Apache wars, and Virgil, driven by his ambition, is corralling mustangs on the Llando Estscado. With their family ranch in New Mexico territory threatened by men of greed and power, men who send murderers to do their dirty work, the Brannocks can only turn to one another--to hold onto an empire they have built with their sweat and blood.

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 four dozen novels and four nonfiction works, including Black Fox, which was made into a CBS miniseries. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Spur Award for his novel The Kincaids and the 2004 Wister Award for Lifetime Achievement in Western Literature.
