Overview

The man from the Brazos is Matt Jorgensen, the alias for Matt Andersen who was the surviving son of Wil Andersen from William Dale Jennings' novel, "The Cowboys" with his permission. Because of a botched-up freight company robbery that resulted in the death of two men, Matt's brother Lukas and a tramp named Jeff Manning who were killed in the robbery. Jeff was mistaken for Matt and when Matt showed up at home, his father made him leave home rather than risk being arrested and hung for a robbery for which he had nothing to do. Matt traveled to the Bar M Ranch south of Waco, Texas, across the Brazos where he became a fast gun and lived a comfortable life. When he heard about his best friend, Rob Best, being killed, he traveled to Abilene, Kansas to avenge his death. On the way, he reminisced about how he and Rob became friends and the first fast guns of the west, and how they helped win the fight as spies at Fort Scott, Kansas. Ergo: the man from the Brazos.

Editorial Reviews

Norco, California - Judge Roy Bean SASS #1
I like "The Man from the Braxos" because the plot was well done and makes you think as you read. So many westerns are fun to read, but they don't stick in your memory very long. This book will stay with you. Ermalis developing into an excellent western writer.
www.bookbrowser.com/Reviews/WilliamsonErmalWalden/manfromthebrazos.htmll - Conan Tigard
I found I really liked reading abnout the younger version of Matt Jorgensen and how he became known as a quick draw. It is obvious that Mr. Williamson is more comfortable with the pen in this story as it flows along quite well and the story always keeps the reader interested in what is going to happen next.. . . A lot of westerns don't really delve into much historical relevance, but The Man from the Brazos is rich with historical importance.You won't regret picking up this book . . .
