Billy Ray Gilmore and his band of kill-crazy outlaws have a plan to do it, too--that is, until Sixkiller comes to town. Hiding his badge to conceal his identity as a U.S. marshal, Sixkiller goes undercover to smoke out the culprits before they strike. But in this town full of two-legged rattlesnakes, deadly surprises lurk behind every saloon door. To keep from being bitten, Sixkiller will have to lay a few traps of his own. Lucky for him, what this town lacks in law, it makes up for in guns--and dynamite.

The Day of the Gunfighter (Gunsmoke #6)

by Joseph A. West

Marshal Matt Dillon and all of the other favorites from the long-running TV show are standing tall in this all-new Western adventure series. While rustlers and desperadoes fill the lawless frontier town of Dodge, Dillon is the one who sees that justice is done-whether it's served by the gavel or by the gun. ... Notorious killer Ed Flynn saved Marshal Dillon's life once, and now Matt is obliged to protect him against the Feeney gang-including the cold-blooded Jicarilla Kid. Matt is given three days to turn over Flynn before the gang burns Dodge to the ground. Into this powder keg rides poetry-spouting Englishman Charles Granville, a law-and-order crusader who's a crack shot with his fancy engraved Colt. But after two suspicious murders, it appears that Granville has a personal vendetta to settle and that Matt has three deadly gunmen to face-the Kid, Lee Feeney, and Granville. But Matt has an unlikely ally in a man he detests, a tubercular case who seems determined to take as many men with him to hell as he can-the man known as Doc Holliday PRAISE FOR JOSEPH A. WEST "Old-fashioned storytelling raised to the level of homegrown art, told in an American language that is almost gone." -Loren D. Estleman, Four-Time Spur Award-Winning Author

Day Out of Days: Stories

by Sam Shepard

From one of our most admired writers: a collection of stories set mainly in the fertile imaginative landscape of the American West, written with the terse lyricism, cinematic detail, and wry humor that have become Sam Shepard's trademarks. A man traveling down Highway 90 West gets trapped alone overnight inside a Cracker Barrel restaurant, where he is tormented by an endless loop of Shania Twain songs on the overhead sound system. A wandering actor returns to his hometown against his better instincts and runs into an old friend, who recounts their teenage days of stealing cars, scoring Benzedrine, and sleeping with whores in Tijuana. A Minnesota family travels south for a winter vacation but, caught up in the ordinary tyrannies of family life, remains oblivious to the beauty of the Yucatán Peninsula. A solitary horse rancher muses on Sitting Bull and Beckett amid the jumble of stuff in his big country kitchen - from rusted spurs and Lakota dream-catchers to yellowing pictures of hawks and galloping horses to - snapshots of different sons in different shirts doing different things like fishing, riding mules and tractors; leaning up against their different mothers at radical angles. Made up of short narratives, lyrics, and dialogues, Day out of Days sets conversation against tale, song against memory, in a cubistic counterpoint that finally links each piece together. The result is a stunning work of vision and clarity imbued with the vivid reverberations of myth - Shepard at his flinty-eyed, unwavering best.

by Elmer Kelton

From one of the West's greatest living storytellers, winner of numerous awards, including the Golden Spur, the Saddleman, and the Western Heritage Award, here is Elmer Kelton's rousing novel of the Canadian River cowboy strike of 1883.

Now a different breed is moving in--big outfits backed by Eastern syndicates and run by power-hungry "managers," men who figure to make a profit, even if it means crowding a cowboy too far... Hugh Hitchcock tried to keep the peace between rancher and cowboy, but when push came to shove the wagon boss knew where his loyalties lay. And when the ranchers stole his cattle, when they lynched his friend and hired a back shooter to put him in his grave, he kept on fighting... because even is they took everything he had, they couldn't touch his pride--or his willingness to fight to the bloody end.
