Free today from Amazon: Dead Man's Town (Jake Moran #2) by Robert Broomall, first published by Fawcett in mass market paperback in 1987. UK DE

Quote:
Jake Moran becomes the West's first town tamer.

The Civil War has just ended, and Union City, Kansas, is the wildest town in the U.S. Railroad terminus and jumping-off point for emigrants headed west, Union City is filled with gamblers, soldiers, settlers, and bad men of all description. It's run by Ned Burr, the notorious Jayhawker, whose name was synonymous with death and desruction during the war. The town council wants to hire a marshal to tame Union City -- and kill Ned Burr. They offer the job to the famous lawman and soldier Jake Moran. Jake doesn't want the job, but he's forced to take it. He has no intention of confronting Burr, though, and makes peace with him. Then Jake falls for Burr's girl . . .
The first book in the Jake Moran series, Dead Man's Crossing is .99.

If you picked up and enjoyed Mr. Pettigrew (Nemesis series) by L.J. Martin last month, you'll want today's Amazon freebie: Nemesis by L.J. Martin. Also free in Europe, Australia, Canada, and UK .

If you enjoyed The Reckoning (Jess Walters series #1) by Robert J. Thomas, free last month, you may also enjoy Brother's Keeper (Jess Walters #2). Also available free in Europe, Canada, Australia, and UK

Both are self-published, but they seem to have solid fan bases.

Free today from Amazon: Unbroke Horses by D.B. Jackson.

The author's They Rode Good Horses, offered free last month, won the 2012 Will Rogers Medallion Award for Western fiction. His short stories were published in ReadWest: Stories of the American West and Outlaws and Lawmen: La Frontera Publishing Presents The American West, Great Short Stories from America's Newest Western Writers.

Summary of Unbroke Horses:
Quote:
Three Civil War deserters, dispossessed of all virtue and living on the fringe of humanity, kidnap a young boy with the sole purpose of conscripting him into their degenerate band of misfits. Tethered about the neck with a rawhide lace and made to bid the commands of General Ike Smith, the boy's survival depends upon his ability to adapt to their malevolent ways a lesson he learns quickly. He abandons the teachings of his clergyman father, and embraces the mindless violence to which he is exposed. For all he finds distasteful in the three men he has grown to despise, he also finds he has an unexplained affinity for the power that resides in the violence that defines them. The boy's life, cast into darkness and evil, promises no chance for salvation. His single opportunity for redemption may well lie with an old Indian horse trainer and a small band of "unbroke" horses

While checking out the Max Brand books posted by Crutledge at the MR library, I found The Log of a Cowboy by Andy Adams, also posted by Crutledge. It sounds particularly interesting. Here's a quote from Wikipedia:

Quote:
The Log of a Cowboy is an account of a five-month drive of 3,000 cattle from Brownsville, Texas, to Montana in 1882 along the Great Western Cattle Trail. Although the book is fiction, it is firmly based on Adams's own experiences on the trail, and it is considered by many to be the best account of cowboy life in literature. Adams was disgusted by the unrealistic cowboy fiction being published in his day; The Log of a Cowboy was his response. It is still in print, and even modern reviewers consider it a compelling classic. The Chicago Herald said: "As a narrative of cowboy life, Andy Adams' book is clearly the real thing. It carries its own certificate of authentic first-hand experience on every page."
A few months ago I read "The Winning of Barbara Worth" by Harold Bell Wright, which I also picked up from the MR library. It is historical fiction, published in 1911, based upon facts concerning the development of the Imperial Valley in California, just west of Yuma, and chronicles early water issues. I found it to be a fascinating book, among the most interesting I read last year. It led to a lot of internet research into the history of the area.

Thanks again to Jgaiser for the reminder of the treasures in the MR library.
