Overview

Savage Texas by William W. Johnstone, J. A. Johnstone

The Greatest Western Writer Of The 21st Century

In a blockbuster new series, America's leading Western writer captures the most violent chapter in frontier history—in the saga of a Yankee with a rifle, an outlaw with a grudge, and a little slice of hell called. . .

Savage Texas

For renegades and pioneers, there is no place like Texas—as long as you have a gun and the guts to use it. Now, the Civil War is over. Carpetbaggers and scalawags rule Austin. Soldiers return to pillaged homes. Longhorns roam the wilds and the state is in chaos. Especially in a town called Hangtree.

Sam Heller and Johnny Cross are Hangtree's newest citizens: Heller is a former Yankee soldier, a deadly shot, and a believer in right from wrong. Cross is a gun for hire with dark dreams of wealth and power—at any cost. Hangtree, with its rich grazing land and nearby mineral deposits, soon erupts in murderous violence. By fate and by choice, these two strangers will find themselves on opposite sides of the law. And Hangtree will soon erupt in murderous violence

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.'"

In the past I have enjoyed the various characters that William Johnstone has given us. This book has a thin plot with noncompelling characters.

Good Read: While this book started out a little slow, by the time I got to the end, it was rolling at full speed. True to the Johnstones style, the book stars off fleshing out the characters and kept the momentum building. Sam Heller is a yankee (and a secret government agent) that everyone loves to hate but still can’t help being drawn to him because of his innate sense of honor and fairness. Johnny Cross is a homeboy back after the war with a less then sterling history. Luke, a wounded vet is taken in by Johnny and together these three set about helping a town recover from the mental and physical scars of the Civil War. But of course, there is always a catch. A band of renegades, posing as Indians, are destroying the countryside. The ensuing battle is one great scene after another. By the time I finished this, I was running to buy the next one. This is a great new series.
