Trouble Rides The Texas Pacificby James J Griffin
Texas Ranger Jim Blawcyzk is riding the El Paso Limited en route to a routine assignment...until the train is wrecked and robbed. Barely escaping the flaming wreckage of the train, Blawcyzk sets out to track down the outlaws responsible for such wanton death and destruction. What at first appears to be an isolated train robbery leads the Ranger to a much larger plot to destroy the Texas Pacific Railroad.
Not only having to try and stop the renegades determined to destroy the railroad, Blawcyzk also finds himself the target of a mysterious dry-gulcher.
"Just ahead, Sam," Jim sighed in relief, as a flash of lightning revealed a low cliff, with several good-sized boulders scattered at its base. "We'll rest for the night. We've stuck it out through worse, pard. You'll be......."
Jim's voice stopped short, as a bullet split the air alongside his head, followed by the sharp crack of a rifle. He ripped at his reins, yanking Sam around. "Get outta here, fast, Sam. Can't see where those shots are comin' from. Give it all you got," he shouted, as bullets ripped the air. As lightning flickered and the rifle snarled again, the Ranger threw up his hands and slewed out of the saddle, to lie sprawled in the mud. Sam reared and galloped down the trail, then halted and turned, nickering questioningly at the prone form of his rider.

If you enjoy a good,clean western novel this is the one for you. There is just enough action, gun-fights and romance without foul language or explicit sex to keep you intrigued until the end. James Griffin has done a fine job writing about the true life lived as a Texas Ranger of days gone by. The main character, Texas Ranger Blawcyck, exemplifies a man of courage, a faithful husband and a man of God. I encourage you to read this well written western novel.
I'd thought they stopped writing westerns like this one, a fast-paced novel featuring a seasoned Texas Ranger and his 'war horse' tracking down railroad saboteurs. This was an exciting read.
Great reading...bad guys, cowboys, Texas Rangers and little blood to boot.
A very good western story
Trouble Rides the Texas Pacific is an action-packed story, with a really likable hero. Texas Ranger Jim Blawcyzk is a family man, but also sworn to his duty as a Ranger. The novel reads quickly, with plenty of shoot-'em-up action, and is refreshingly devoid of cursing. I highly recommend it.
