The year is 1837 and times are changing in the wilderness of North Texas. As more settlers move in and occupy land, relations with the Indians have dissolved from an uneasy peace to complete hostility. Believing raids will drive the newcomers from the land given to them by treaty as hunting grounds, the hostiles begin to burn homesteads, killing men, women and children.
When the Volunteer Rangers expand, Dylan Ryan is one of the first to enlist. Still unable to locate Abigail after their parting, he decides his contribution as an Indian fighter will help ensure her safety.
Will he be in time to save her, or will she perish as Forts and homesteads continue to burn?
“Shooting, and all western life plus love story”
Five Star Review on Amazon By CJ M
This is part 2 so start with part one, to know all that is going on. I enjoyed all the information about 1838 history and having American Indians put in positive light. Yes, gun fights, fighting and all plus a love story. You have men and women that are strong plus the bad guys, too. This story does have some mistakes in word use, and other mistakes but you can figure out the right word. Enjoyed the western way of talking.
About the Author
G.H. Lambert is a sixth generation Texan whose ancestors first settled when Texas was under Mexican rule. Needless to say, many stories of life in the early days of Texas have been handed down through the generations. Now retired, G.H. Lambert travels the back roads, researching old traces where wagons once rolled, finding the exact locations of original settlements and stockades where people banded together for protection against attacks by hostiles. Once found, these places are documented and photographed to be used as backdrops for future books.
After a varied career, and years of managing a family-owned business, G.H. Lambert now enjoys retirement, which affords the author with time to pursue a life-long dream of writing fiction.
