"e;To read a Dusty Richards novel is to journey back into the Old West with a writer who knows the territory."e; --Jory ShermanThe Land Made Him Hard The Byrnes family came to Texas and carved out a place on the land. Three generations who paid in blood and treasure. Children carried off by Comanche. A brother lost to war. Lives shattered. Chet Byrnes was trying to hold the ranch together through one more winter for one more cattle drive when he hanged three horse thieves this side of the Red River--and a blood feud erupted. . .The Future Made Him FightA family wants revenge--no matter how just the hangings were. From attacks on the Byrnes clan to the killing of livestock, the feud leads to one vicious murder--and then another. But amidst the violence and pain, a man who has seen his youth slip by is about to get one last chance at life and love. . .If only Chet can end the war he started. . .If only he can survive this land and the killers who want him dead--at any price. . ."e;Nobody spins a better western tale.
