Overview

No one captures the glory, adventure, and drama of the courageous men and women who tamed the American West like award-winning, bestselling author Terry C. Johnston. His Plainsmen series brims with colorful characters, fierce battles, and compelling historical lore.

THE STALKERS

Entrenched on a poorly sheltered island, many of Seamus Donegan's crack squad of Army scouts lie dead…and many more are dying. Led by Major George Forsyth, fifty seasoned plainsmen had combed the Colorado Territory in search of Cheyenne. Along a fork of the Republican River, these brave men suddenly found themselves outnumbered twenty to one. Now Donegan, his fellow scouts, and his long-lost uncle are under attack. As the battle rages, Donegan is stalked by a traitor who seeks revenge for old wrongs. Together the dwindling band awaits a heroic last-minute rescue from the merciless nine-day siege—known today as the Battle of Beecher Island.

    Takes you there

    Got this in my Christmas stocking. Having just read twenty straight Louis La'Mour novels including The Sackett series, this was a welcome break from LL's simple straightforward tale. The Stalkers is gripping history, detailed without being overbearing. Being a history buff, I now have Beecher Island on my must-see list of places to visit.

    Gripping

    This has got to be the most suspensful book Johnston has written. Once I began this book, I knew I would not be able to close it until I completed it. The most exciting, emotional book I have read in years.
