Overview

Davy Nelson rode into Crockett, Texas, exhausted but pleased. He figured he had just about completed the promise he had made to his dying partner on the battlefield near Seven Pines, Virginia, two years earlier.

But, when he climbed down off his bay in front of Roche's saloon, he landed in enough trouble to forever change his life. He hadn't counted on greedy Yankee carpetbaggers who were saddling local ranchers with usurious taxes to steal land for pennies on the dollar, especially since one of the ranches belonged to his dead partner's family. Knowing he had a battle on his hands, he hunkered down for the fight.

Outgunned ten to one, Davy Nelson fought back the way he learned in the Confederate Cavalry: hit and run, decimate the enemy, force them into fatal mistakes. And do it quick - before they hang you.

Meet the Author

Kent Conwell’s enthusiasm for reading and writing was spurred by his upbringing in the tiny Texas town of Wheeler, population 848. With little else to occupy his mind in the middle of empty, rolling prairies, Conwell began conjuring up tales to bring a sense of adventure into his life and then to share it with others. Today, Conwell has produced dozens of westerns that tap into the nation’s pioneer spirit, and mysteries that combine deadly consequences with quirky characters, such as his Tony Boudreaux mystery series. As a teacher, he continues to expound on his love for America’s Old West period. He lives in Port Neches, Texas, with his wife.
