Although it was the first novel written in the series, with the advent of three prequels, Leaving Amarillo actually is Book 4 in the Wes Crowley saga. The titles are arranged chronologically, but each also is a stand-alone novel.
Wes Crowley and Otis "Mac" McFadden are lifelong friends. Wes is a year younger and has always looked up to Mac, so when Mac joined the Texas Rangers in the 1870s in the Texas Panhandle, Wes goes along as usual.
But placing unequivocal trust in anyone is seldom a good idea.
Honor and cowardice, greed and hatred, anger and love intertwine in this fast-paced tale of one man discovering what's true in life.
Come along as Wes battles Comanches, tracks enemies and friends, waxes philosophical, falls in love and ultimately finds himself in a place where one era hasn't quite ended and the next hasn't quite begun.
