Always a big fan of Louis L'Amour, Bill Sherod started writing his own Western fiction after reading James A. Michener's Texas and living in Texas himself for more than 20 years. Born in Iowa, Bill grew up in Illinois, and retired from a career of both military service and law enforcement. He and his wife of 58 years currently live in California. Bill Sherod is also the author of Search for the Hidden Valley, the first book in The Diamond Bar-B trilogy.
The Shortcut Homeby Bill Sherod
THE SHORTCUT HOME is set in the 1800's, where for the most part the law existed only in towns. Once out on the trail heading home, the Diamond Bar-B men were their own law. This journey was fraught with unexpected twists and turns. Cole, the Bar-B foreman, while out hunting meat for the camp comes upon a ghastly scene. An entire family murdered. The work of three psychopathic brothers. A big dirty man named Amos also adds to the mayhem they encounter. In addition to the characters from the first book in this trilogy, SEARCH FOR THE HIDDEN VALLEY, I've added a number of new ones. You'll find Toddie, and Susan, plus Orin and his granddaughter, Crystal. Half Moon shows Libby and Crystal how to treat not one, but two, gunshot wounds. Once the stolen horses were recovered, Bill and Doby thought the trip home would be a simple matter of following the trail home. Wrong! There's nothing easy about this shortcut going home!
