Gold fever hits eighteen-year-old Andrew Colton. August 1863, Andy rides into the southwestern New Mexico Black Range, where Birchville is headquarters for anything gold. Andy pans unsuccessfully for gold, and, by first snowfall, he's done. Apaches raid Birchville, then head into the mountains. Friend Thomas O'Malley convinces Andy to go with him farther into the range to Mogollon, a mining burg. Apaches wound Andy and kill O'Malley. Andy stumbles into already-raided Mogollon, where he meets Dawson, a runaway slave. Dawson hides Andy when his brothers come looking. Apaches seize Andy and Dawson. The Apache leader, whose only objective is revenge for his brother's death, uses Andy as a lure for Andy's brothers. The Apaches, the Coltons, and Dawson fight for their lives.
William Tell Sackett had followed a different path from his younger brothers, but his name, like theirs, was spoken with respect and just a little fear. Where Orrin had brought law and order from New Mexico to the plains of Montana, backed up by the gunfighting talents of his brother Tye, Tell Sackett's destiny drew him to Texas after he had to kill a man. There, in the high, lonesome country, he came upon a vein of pure gold. All he'd wanted was enough to buy a ranch, but he soon learned that gold had ways of its own with men.

Gat Hammer is a young cowboy who has decided to use his savings to buy himself a ranch as the cattle drive arrives in Dodge City. Having earned a big bonus, he deposits his wages in the town bank for safe-keeping. As the rest of his fellow wranglers paint Dodge red, Hammer rents a room in the Deluxe hotel, totally unaware of the fact that outlaw Emmett Holt and his gang are in town to rob the bank. Wealthy lawyer Mason Dwire has planned and hired the Holt gang to make them all rich. It seems that nothing can stop the merciless bank robbers until young Hammer realizes that his savings have also been stolen. The Cheyenne cowboy gets riled and when his trail boss pal is gunned down in the shadows, he rides into action with guns blazing.
First Apaches, then Confederate Texans. The Colton brothers--James, Trace, and now Andy--must face not only their enemies, but their own personal demons. Driven to near madness by Apache brutality, nearly killing the sheriff, James chooses joining the Union Army over prison. Andy, the youngest brother, also joins, but only to keep James out of trouble. Trace, the oldest Colton, finds himself imprisoned by a sadistic Confederate officer and left alone to die.
It's Arizona Territory at the start of the Civil War, and the Coltons are caught in the middle of it. In the end, it's all up to James to save Union troops from an Apache attack--if he can summon the courage to face his old torturers and their leader, Cochise.
"Melody Groves writes about the Southwestern frontier with real authority; a scholar's grasp of history, a keen sense of the land, and a well-honed edge for action that'll get your blood boiling. Historical fiction at its best."--Johnny Boggs, author of thirty books including his latest, "Northfield"
It's 1911 and the townsfolk of Old Texas, Alabama, have had enough. Every Saturday night for a year, E. O. Smonk has been destroying property, killing livestock, seducing women, cheating and beating men, all from behind the twin barrels of his Winchester 45-70 caliber over-and-under rifle. Syphilitic, consumptive, gouty, and goitered--an expert with explosives and knives--Smonk hates horses, goats, and the Irish, and it's high time he was stopped. But capturing old Smonk won't be easy--and putting him on trial could have shocking and disastrous consequences, considering the terrible secret the citizens of Old Texas are hiding.
Con Vallian knew the best way to stay out of trouble was to mind his own business. Then he stopped for a cup of coffee at a stranger's campfire and found himself guiding a family of greenhorns across the prairie -- fighting a pack of rustlers on one hand and some mighty unpredictable Indians on the other!
"The world has a new hero - actually an old hero reimagined - George Armstrong Custer, in this delightfully funny alternative history that's better, or at least happier, than the real thing." -WINSTON GROOM, bestselling author of Forrest Gump and El Paso "Droll satire, this is the West as it might have been if the Sioux hadn't saved us."-STEPHEN COONTS, bestselling author of Flight of the Intruder and Liberty's Last Stand "A good, old-fashioned yarn....There is much to enjoy in Crocker's book." - AUSTIN RUSE, American Greatness "If Custer died for our sins, Armstrong resurrects him for our delight. Not just the funniest book ever written about an Indian massacre, but laugh out loud funny, period. The best historical comic adventure since George MacDonald Fraser's Flashman." -PHILLIP JENNINGS, author of Nam-A-Rama and Goodbye Mexico "Crocker has created a hilarious hero for the ages. Armstrong rides through the Old West setting right the wrongs, and setting wrong the rights, in a very funny cascade of satire, history, and even patriotism." -ROB LONG, Emmy- and Golden Globes-nominated screenwriter and co-executive producer of Cheers "Crocker's Custer, a milk-drinking, sharp-shooting master of disguises, takes us on a series of uproarious adventures in the persona of Armstrong.... Armstrong is an extraordinary hero- a military strategist, a courageous fighter and some sort of dog whisperer to boot. He's also a dashing romantic with a knack for making women swoon....I'll look forward to finding out where duty calls Armstrong next." -- The Washington Examiner "I've thoroughly enjoyed Harry Crocker's latest, a satirical alternative history about Michigan's own George Armstrong Custer, simply and cleverly entitled Armstrong. In Crocker's world, Custer survived a butchering by Crazy Horse at the Battle of Little Bighorn and has become a Victorian paladin and celebrity, doing everything over the top and then some more beyond the top. Crocker knows his history, so his anti-history is knock-down, pain in the stomach, hilarious...Even within the slap-stick outrageousness, there lurk and hover very meaningful and subtle points and comments. In other words, Crocker has produced a fictional masterpiece." - BRADLEY BIRZER, the Russell Amos Kirk Chair in History at Hillsdale College "Action-packed and great for laughs... Fathers will love reading this book with their sons. Patriots will love it, too.... Prepare to delight in American history and heroism, unencumbered by trigger warnings." -- The American Thinker This is the kind of book young people should want to read, which will challenge them and widen their horizons. It is part history, part humor, part drama, and all-around entertainment." - JAMES ROBBINS, author of "Erasing America: Losing Our Future by Destroying Our Past." "A sly and funny revisionist take on an icon of the American West." - City Journal "The conservative novel of the year... Armstrong is a rollicking work of alternate history that doesn't sacrifice accurate details or historical nuance for the sake of your entertainment.... Armstrong's Custer is a hero to love and admire." -- GRACE HOUGHTON, The Conservative Book Club "H.W. Crocker has irresistible fun with George Armstrong Custer...a hilarious adventure." -- The American Spectator "If you like learning history while laughing, you'll like this book...marvelous satire." -- DAVID LIMBAUGH, #1 bestselling author of The True Jesus and The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama's War on the Republic What if Custer survived the Battle of the Little Bighorn? What if he became a gun-for-hire? And what if he made common cause with a troupe of cancan dancers, Chinese acrobats, an eyepatch-wearing rebel cardsharp, and a multilingual Crow scout? Eager to clear his name from the ignominy of his last stand - but forced to do so incognito, under the clever pseudonym Armstrong - Custer comes across evildoings in the mysterious Montana town of Bloody Gulch, which a ruthless Indian trader runs as his own personal fiefdom, with rumors of muder, slavery, and buried treasure. Armstrong is a rip-roaring tale of action, adventure, and hilarity as the ridiculously handsome, astonishingly brave, and highly susceptible milk-drinking cavalryman travels through the untamed West. The Custer of the West Series begins here - and it's a wild ride you won't want to miss.

Samantha Gibbons was a tomboy, born and raised in Boston, from a wealthy family who tried in vain to turn her into a 'lady'. Samantha, or Sam as she preferred, was eager to explore and lead a life of adventure, rather the tea and cake circle she was being forced into. Then she read about the Wright Brothers, Wilbur and Orville, and her life would change for ever. Buying her own aeroplane, she headed out into what was still termed as the 'Wild West'. What followed was an adventure filled with thrills, fear, danger and friendships, and a journey she would never forget.
Until the night of the fire, Stanton, Montana, was a peaceful town. It boasted a church, a school and a bank, and no longer attracted those hard-riding, hard-drinking characters who brought with them the kind of lawlessness and destruction that had been rife during its earlier frontier days. Its marshal, Silas Tasker, rejoiced in the knowledge that he had rid the town of the kind of rip-roaring reputation attributed to so many other cattle-towns across the west. But in the aftermath of the blaze that destroyed the barn on the Diamond-H ranch, a man lost his sanity, others died and Silas found himself confronted with a feud capable of developing into an unstoppable range-war.
