Taming the Steelby Lynn Jackson
The year is 2213. The world's ecosystem has collapsed due to human overpopulation and the lack of effort by mankind to save Mother Earth. Mankind has killed off or destroyed almost everything God created. Almost as if in punishment for man's crimes against nature, a massive solar storm rained over the planet, reverting civilization back to the old west where people live and die by the gun and robotic steel horses run wild and free. Rising from the destruction, a small town in what was once California called Pleasant Hill is in dire need of rescue before everything is gone. With electricity generated from the sun and wind, gold delivered by train, salvageable items dug from the dried earth or panned out of the running streams; Pleasant Hill has been taken over by a gang of cutthroats led by a father and his two sons called the Banners; who want the town's riches for their own. With no respect for the town's law, the Banners kill, steal and destroy anything that stands in their way. Seeking revenge against the Banners for the murder of her parents, and for the town's salvation; a twenty year old woman named Rina Tailor hires a legendary professional gunslinger to come to their rescue. His name is Shane Hilden. As justice is served, Shane tames more than the outlaws as he helps a young man named Jesse Williams who's in love with Rina win a steel race by breaking the wild spirit of a black robotic horse named D'Artagnan. Faster than the wind, ruler over the desert lands and king of his herd of robotic horses that broke free from taming by their creator, D'Artagnan is needed to win the steel race in order to help Jesse and Rina pay the gunslinger's bounty in order to save their town before the Banners can choke what life is left from it.
