"This, beyond any doubt, is the best book Miss Haywood has ever written. It is an on-the-spot picture of an authentic Texas ranch. It begins with riotous fun, it growls into swift adventure, and it culminates in real depth of feeling." When Eddie Wilson's pet goat Gardenia ate a hole in the top of his father's new convertible, even Eddie, who loved her dearly, knew it was time for Gardenia to move on. Mr. Wilson decided to send her, personally conducted by Eddie, to Uncle Ed's ranch and to let Eddie stay there for a visit. As soon as Gardenia was put in the baggage car, she set up an unremittant "Ba-a-ah" until the baggage man released her from her crate on Eddie's assurance that she would lie down quietly and go to sleep. It was then that Gardenia really went into action. There was not a dull moment for anyone on the train or at the stations where it stopped. But, as the porter said, when Uncle Ed met the train at San Antonio and asked if Eddie had been any trouble to him, "Oh, no! No trouble at all,, just a little excitement." The excitement continued when Eddie and Gardenia took up residence on the ranch. Although Gardenia did not learn much from her experiences (being, after all, only a goat), Eddie did from his. He learned to be a good cowboy and, in so doing, developed self-reliance and dependability. Eddie, who always had plenty of personality, has character now as well. He still tickles the funny bone, but he also touches the heart." You can read more of Eddie's fun adventures in Little Eddie and Eddie and the Fire Engine. Both books and more books by this author are in the Bookshare collection.
FROM THE BACK COVER: The year is 1866. The region is the Arizona Territory. The town is called Rainbow. The cavalry are there. So is an English gambler. So is Edge. Outside the town waits Cochise and his Apaches. They are all together at Rainbow's end
Gilman takes the anti-hero Edge, a loner, half-breed psychopath, western outsider, and amoral existentialist, on another adventure in the American West. The icons of Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns of the American West: violence, heat, dust and bloodshed, mix with sex, black humour and the western landscape.
Another gripping tale from the Edge Series. In this tale, notorious loner Edge runs in to a husband and wife couple -- Geoffrey and Helen -- riding out west. After their horse gives out on them and dies, Edge offers them assistance to get to the next town. However, Edge has no idea what he's signed up for as Helen throws herself at him and her husband ends up blinded... Filled with twists and turns at every corner that are liable to keep you turning page after page relentlessly wanting more, not unlike Helen... Little does she know that not everything you want is for the taking.
FROM THE BACK COVER: Edge hits a town which is an earthly Paradise, but with its own peculiar form of punishment. There can never be good without evil far away, as Edge discovers when he is sentenced to death by being flung from a precipice. Hedges is beginning to enjoy a life on the ocean wave. Fighting as a sailor against ships is fun compared to the rigours of the civil war on land. But war of any type is no paradise for the fighters, nor for those who get in the way, however close to God they may be. But it turns out that, although Edge misses the reward, in the end everything goes with a bang.
An army shipment has been robbed and a general's treasure stolen. The thieves are captured by Sioux Indians, and pay a high price - the highest price of all. A bank-raid that doesn't quite work out. More Indians. More deaths. And, for Edge, a secret love.
Just outside Los Angeles, Edge rides into a small township. The central building is the playhouse, run by Rodney Holly. Right next door is the photographers, run by Justin Wood. It seems like the kind of nice little town that people dream of. But, it's not. People die - some silently and alone, others shot down in the face of the sun - and they don't get up and walk away. By the End, there are no dreams left.
The American Civil War turned brother against brother and father against son. It reduced men - and women - to the level of animals. It led to rape, torture and sudden, bloody death. And- it gave Edge his first taste of the pleasure of killing.
High Mountain, a small frontier town in Colorado, is to stage a musical extravaganza and wild festival. Rollo Stone, the famous violinist is the main attraction and hordes of music lovers pack the town to witness the event. But with the crowds comes trouble. The fragile rule of law order collapses as a bunch of hired guns take over. The sheriff is gunned down and Edge, forever in the thick of things, is left to sort out the mess.
The sleepy Mexican town was peaceful until Edge arrived. This time he was not looking for trouble, just a place to settle down-perhaps even marry, if Isabella Montez would have him-but that wasn't to be. The bounty hunters rode in, and Edge kept away-they weren't after him. They had taken Ortiz Gonzalez's woman; there was a price on Gonzalez's head and they needed her as a hostage. Still Edge wanted to stay on the sidelines. But not for long. Ortiz saw to that.
Summer of '63 - back to the Civil War. A truly great train robbery. Chinese bandits and a village of women. Edge betrayed for a fistful of dollars. Cross and double-cross. And Death - always Death! Everyone comes together at a small town called Wounded Knee.
A blazing wagon rolls through a quiet, dusty township, trailing flames and smoke. Two white women are tied to stakes within it - their bodies a mass of arrows. It seems that Edge arrives too late at his peaceful farm to save his young wife, Beth. He only sees the destruction the Sioux have left, and their triumphant, fleeing backs. The trail Edge follows means danger and death - this he knows. But it is what it leads to that is worse than death.
An art auction is held in San Francisco and recently discovered da Vinci sells for one million dollars. Edge offers to guard the picture for its new owners, Drew and Madeline Grover, but a man has to die violently before the half-breed's offer is accepted. Art thieves are everywhere and when Edge escorts the picture by rail towards its destination of New Orleans it triggers a chain reaction of plotting, ambush and killing, and not even Edge remains above suspicion.
Past and Present are mixed. For Captain Hedges the past means the savage, brother-kill-brother world of the Civil War. It means the classic storming of the Missionary Ridge and a new command, a fighting unit comprised entirely of liberated slaves. And there's a prisoner from the notorious Quantrill's Raiders. He escapes from Hedges and goes free, ready in later years to meet "the dirty little coward" who is to lay him in his grave. In the present there's pain and killing for Edge. An outlaw who claims he's the greatest. A writer who learns the true meaning of death. And, for the first time, a woman.
FROM THE BACK COVER: Edge rides into Vengeance Valley, where Ryan rules the roost. The cowed homesteaders paid tribute to the ruthless robber land baron without a fight. Until Edge came.

To fight, to kill, to revenge them on Ryan. In an explosive finale of blood and bullets, Edge and Ryan fight for the fate of Vengeance Valley

Until she finds a tall, strong, handsome Irishman on the wrong end of the hangman's noose. Suddenly this unconventional woman comes up with an outrageous idea . . . Teague O'Neal has rugged cheekbones, tousled black curls, and eyes as blue as the sky, even if he is caked in Colorado mud. The men insist they caught him horse-thieving, and there's something desperate about him that says he'd do anything for a buck. Maybe it was pure chance, or maybe it was something more that brought Madeline and Teague together. But one thing's clear, between a woman who has just about everything she could ever want, and a man who's lost that and more, they might find something in between worth living for . . .
