Gil Slatter's quick on the draw and has a head for running a ranch, but he's also a lonely man with nothing more than a cot in the bunkhouse at the TXY Ranch to call home. But when the foreman drops dead of a heart attack and the owner picks Gil to take his place, his world turns upside down. One day life is simple. The next he's running the outfit and married to a woman who has never known affection. Between wild horses, outlaws, rustlers, an ambitious young landowner with a mean streak, and the flirtatious wife of the ranch owner, it's no easy task Gil faces. But with his new bride beside him, he'll take the TXY to new heights of success... or die trying!
About the Author
But his lifelong dream was to write the novels he loved. He sat on the stoop of Zane Grey’s cabin and promised that he’d get published. And in 1992, his first book, Noble’s Way, hit the shelves. Since then, he’s had 140 more come out.
If he can steal some time, he also like to fish for trout on the Buffalo River.

As usual Mr. Richards doesn't disappoint. A great narrative with lovable authentic characters living life in the old west. If you like Westerns, don't pass this one up!
No need it tells it all in the bookstore the
I was pleasantly surprised at Gil's choice of bride. She is not the usual blonde wench that so many writers slap into their books. She and Gil make a true transformation, changing both of their lives forever. I hope Dusty Richards will continue their saga. If he does, it will be a story worth reading.
