Land law, water rights, deeds of ownership? Boring. Unless of course, people are shooting at you because of them.

Sarah and her daughter flee to Nevada Territory and are eligible for homestead rights. After claiming her Land law, water rights, deeds of ownership? Boring. Unless of course, people are shooting at you because of them. The Civil War has disrupted thousands of lives, including that of Sarah Jackson, whose husband was killed for not joining the Confederate Army in Georgia.

    This book, with its western style and no-nonsense character, pulls you in by the neck and doesn't let go. In looking at the author's biography, it is no wonder that living such a rich life (he once lived on the Island of Guam and worked in radio) is a never-ending source of storytelling, which the author tells in a unique and creative way. The prose is written so that it keeps one wanting to go back and savor the words again and again. Here's one example and this one comes early in the story: "S This book, with its western style and no-nonsense character, pulls you in by the neck and doesn't let go. In looking at the author's biography, it is no wonder that living such a rich life (he once lived on the Island of Guam and worked in radio) is a never-ending source of storytelling, which the author tells in a unique and creative way. The prose is written so that it keeps one wanting to go back and savor the words again and again. Here's one example and this one comes early in the story: "Steel gray eyes that gave one the impression they could burrow into the soul ... soften at the cry of a child or the lilt of a lovely voice." The story is set in a time of anarchy, in the Wild West, a time when guns were fired in the blink of an eye because land disputes had to be settled. When lives were taken in a heartbeat.That's when Jacob Chance, U.S. Marshal, came in. At this point, the reader is fully engrossed by the story of the man and the town where ranchers fight for survival, and romance is in the air, and not one day is easy living. Soon, I felt as if I knew every single person populating this book, until the very last word on the page. I highly recommend this book to everyone looking not only for a good western, but a style of writing that is sure to take this author far.
