Overview

In Westward, the history of the Old American West unfolds in twenty-eight original stories written especially for this unique collection commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of Western Writers of America, Inc. Featuring handpicked stories by four-time Spur Award winning author Dale L. Walker, Westward is a time capsule of the Old American West, from the first horse ever seen by a North American Indian to a man who escaped from the Alamo, from the massacre at Mountain Meadows to Libbie Custer's great secret, from the Apache Wars to the California gold rush. And such luminaries of the West as Crazy Horse, Jim Bridger, Jebediah Smith, King Fisher, Doc Holliday, Belle Starr, John Wesley Hardin, and the one black man to acompany the Lewis and Clark expedition, are brought to life in these classic tales.

Here, the ghosts of the Old West, some already there, others lured to that vast and trackless land of the setting sun, will talk to you in this volume of short stories to be treasured.
