Passing Identity on the Western Trail

With his twin Colts, Danny Duggan earned himself a reputation as a dangerous gunman. Danielle Strange, however, just wants to settle down and make something of her Texas ranch. When trouble rides in to town and an old friend is killed, Danielle turns to Danny for help. But there is more to Danny than meets the eye. And just what is the secret of their relationship anyway?

Stay tuned for further developments!

 

 

Bards of the West

April is (among other things) National Poetry Month.

Long before the phenomenon of Country Music there were cowboys experiementing with the craft of versification. If you would like to read some of the cowboy poetry that has been and is still being written today, check out some of these titles from our catalog.

From Westerns About Women to Westerns By Women

If you're the kind of reader who thinks westerns are only written by men for men, then my guess is, you haven't browsed the western section lately. In my last post I highlighted some westerns about women. Now, here are some titles in the genre written by women.  I think they deserve to be more widely known.
