Free (Kindle) Borderline by Robert J. Conley [Cherokee Historical Western Adventure]
Borderline by Oklahoma-resident Cherokee author Robert J. Conley (Storytellers Native American author listing, Western Writers of America), a recipient of multiple literary as well as genre awards including the Golden Spur and the WWA's Owen Wister Award for Lifetime Contribution, is his western historical adventure novel starring a part-Cherokee man and his friend attempting to retrieve the stolen gold needed to save a family farm, drawing upon Cherokee allies from the tribes who are forbidden to touch the outlaws who've taken advantage of the lack of white lawmen on their land within the historical Indian Territory (Wikipedia), free courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press' Pioneering imprint, who are e-printing it from 1993 edition originally out from Pocket Books which was apparently titled in separate words as Border Line.
This is a follow-up sequel to a previous novel Strange Company (also reprinted by Endeavour), which introduced the protagonists to each other during the US Civil War, but can apparently be read standalone.
Currently free @ Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else that Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program)
And this has been the selected 3rd (non-repeat) free ebook thread of the day.
Because while we've been mostly getting more obscure reprint pulp westerns from sfnal authors' old school day jobs (which are still quite welcome), it's a real treat to receive one which is a tale from a notable award-winning dedicated western genre author, dealing with themes he would have the background and knowledge to handle appropriately, with the skill and flair that presumably won him said awards.
Money is power in the wild west…
With more gold than either has ever seen, Dhu Walker and Ben Lacey are desperately scouting their way to Iowa, where Ben’s sister Katharine is fighting off creditors to keep hold of the family farm.
En route they happen upon a gang of outlaws, known as the Border Rats, holed up in Indian Territory after robbing a bank. Cherokee land is the ideal sanctuary for murderers and thieves like Newt Trainor.
The U.S. government forbids the tribes from arresting white men, and white lawmen rarely bother to do the job themselves.
When they meet, cordially at first, Trainer can smell the gold on Dhu and Ben, and he is determined to get his hands on it.
But Dhu Walker knows these parts; he’s part Cherokee himself. He calls on the aid of the toughest and smartest trackers the Cherokee Nation has to offer.
Together they must find a way to reclaim the gold and save Ben’s sister.
And if in the process they rid the West of a scourge like Newt Trainor and his Border Rats, it will be no one’s loss.
