Norman Thompson doesn't seek out trouble, but it has a way of finding him, anyhow.
All he wants is a job as a ranch foreman. He'd tried in Montana, but ended up in a gunfight with a pair of ugly-looking brothers over a horse. Leaving one dead and the other swearing revenge, Norm figures it'd be wise to make himself scarce. He heads south, making his way to Nebraska. Instead of work, though, he finds something he never expected--a partner. Edith is a beautiful young woman with a sordid past of her own. Together, they start a cattle ranch, driving herds up in the summer to the lush grass of the newly-opened Cherokee Strip. With his brawn and her brains, it's a winning combination.
The sins of yesteryear, though, are not so easily left behind. Norm's reputation as a gunfighter and bounty hunter won't die. While he settles into a new life as a ranch owner and family man, forces are at work to take it all away. Will he and Edith find the happiness they've been searching for? Or will the ghosts of the past burn it all to bitter ashes?
About the Author
But his lifelong dream was to write the novels he loved. He sat on the stoop of Zane Grey’s cabin and promised that he’d get published. In 1992, his first book, Noble’s Way, hit the shelves. He’s published 150 since, the latest of which, The Mustanger and the Lady, is currently in production as a full-length motion picture.
If he can steal some time, he also like to fish for trout on the White River. Find out more about Dusty and his writing at www.dustyrichardslegacy.com.
