Clee Fahr has just arrived by stage in Denver City, Colorado. It is 1861 and the War Between the States has broken out back in the East. Torn apart by opposing military and political sympathies, the town is a tinderbox of treachery and suspicion. Eames Jeffords, an old enemy of Clee's from the South, is buying arms for the Confederate cause. Sam Massey, a mine owner, is raising a company of volunteers to march east and join the Union forces. Although he was born in the North, Clee has divided sympathies. But he's caught in the middle, and both sides see him as a threat--a threat that needs to be removed.
Sheriff Hickory Marks had a life-or-death task on his hands, or else the entire town of Yellowhorse would be wiped out by the cunning savage's bloody acts of vengeance.
This book has two action-packed westerns.
General George Armstrong Custer was determined to find one or the other in the valley of the Little Big Horn-and so he led 225 men of the 7th Cavalry into one of the bloodiest massacres in American history. In this exciting novel, based on Custer's Last Stand," the Spur- winning author Lewis B. Patten vividly recreates the dramatic events which led up to that violent clash of arms on THE RED SABBATH. Told through the eyes of a hard-bitten civilian scout, this action-packed novel traces the bitter, maniacal hatred the Sioux felt for Custer, examines the conflict of personal ties in the general's own ranks, and describes the desperate struggle of the survivors of that fateful battle. Thus, with suspenseful pace and daring action, history becomes vividly alive as great Western fiction.
CHARLIE WAS AN INDIAN ... FORCED BY WHITES TO PURSUE OTHER INDIANS! The young grandson of a prominent rancher had been taken hostage by a band of vicious Cheyennes after they had slaughtered his parents. The search party forced Charlie to act as their scout. If he failed, he knew they would kill him. But even if he succeeded, over the incredible odds, would they really ever accept him as other than a redskinned outcast? A series of bloody events along a treacherous trail and the sympathy of a young white woman, also a victim of Indian brutality, would only add to the unpredictability of the outcome.
"One of the more popular writers of Western fiction, Lewis B. Patten's THE YOUNGERMAN GUNS spotlights a deputy sheriff with a mighty big problem. This concerns a lawman whose hidden secret is that he is the brother of the leader of one of the more feared gangs of outlaw raiders heckling banks and communities of the West. "It may well be easy for readers of this book to match the tension that Dan Youngerman faces in anticipation of a raid by his brother on the town where he is a lawman with that faced by Gary Cooper in the movie epic HIGH NOON. After having been accepted by the citizens of Dobeville, Kansas, for seven years, Dan is faced with the necessity of revealing his secret to the townsmen when he discovers that the raid is imminent.
