Overview

A Lone Star Christmas by William W. Johnstone, J. A. Johnstone

SMOKE JENSEN, MATT JENSEN, FALCON AND DUFF MACCALLISTER—TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME

They just wanted to get home for Christmas . . . but fate had other plans.

It’s December 1890. A Texas rancher named Big Jim Conyers has a deal with Scottish-born, Wyoming cattleman Duff MacCallister. Along with Smoke and Matt Jensen, the party bears down on Dodge, Kansas, to make a cattle drive back to Forth Worth. But before they can get out of Dodge, guns go off and a rich man’s son is killed.

Soon the drive turns into a deadly pursuit, then a staggering series of clashes with bloodthirsty Indians and trigger-happy rustlers. And the worst is yet to come—the party rides into a devastating blizzard, a storm so fierce that their very survival is at stake.

From the greatest Western authors, here is an epic tale of the unforgiving American frontier and how, amidst fierce storms of man and nature, miracles can still happen.

“An absorbing tale of Christmas with a side of magic. Four stars!” —RT Book Reviews on A Rocky Mountain Christmas

Being the all-around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.  
 
He began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western history library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard—and learned.
 
“Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. ‘Keep the historical facts accurate,’ he would say. ‘Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.’”

A Lone Star Christmas by William W and J.A. Johnstone This book first appealed to me because of the cover. It has snow and horses, blizzard looking. After reading the back of the cover I was convinced I just had to read this book. I've read other series of books about cattle runs and thoroughly enjoyed them. The lifestyle, the hardships and having to survive by what you did mattered. Book starts out with a female who is traveling back home after visiting relatives and there's a mystery as to her birth mother. She meets up with a man who sticks up for her when she arrives and he handles the problem men in his own way. He's left his past in Boston but proves himself to her father who gives him a job on the ranch. They part ways, her to find her bio mom and him to learn about cowboying. Things are going just too smoothly for the ranch and the cattle drive but it will be in December and a different type of cattle than what they are used to. The cattle even appealed to me as my dad was in charge of an experimental cattle here in our hometown when he was young. A lot of different things happen in a specific order that play havoc on everything to follow. Revenge for things done in the past: sometimes to friends, sometimes to family that trigger events. The weather plays a major part in all that happens, it's just so unpredictable in the winter to begin with. The book talks of many different types of storms. The generosity of people overwhelmed me and made this a true Christmas book to read. Love the scenery, people, story line, time frame and had a hard time putting it down at the end of my day. I do rate this a 5 and wish the rating system was higher as my rating would then be higher as well. As this is the first time reading the authors I will search out more of their works and read them as I know I will not be disappointed in the books.

You'll enjoy this book if you're interested in reading about ranching in the early West. Other than that, too many close calls to believe.
