Hangman's Song by Charles G. West
Preacher Nathaniel Rix and his sons bring the Word of the Lord to the lost souls settled on the Western frontier—and deliver salvation from the end of a pistol barrel. Homesteaders and heathens alike are sinners in Rix’s eyes . . . and removing them from temptation provides him with such Earthly rewards as gold and weapons for his gospel spreading crusade.
Jordan Gray still mourns the loss of his wife and son, their murders gnawing away at his soul. A long winter of self-imposed exile in the Big Horn Mountains has given him an enlightened perspective on the nature of good and evil. And when he finds himself wanted for a murder committed by the Rix family, Jordan takes it upon himself to deliver vengeance.
“Rarely has an author painted the great American West in strokes so bold, vivid, and true.” —Ralph Compton
