Out of work cowpoke Bud Eugen comes across Marta, a mute sixteen-year-old Mexican girl whose family has been killed by Indians. Bud reluctantly takes her along, even though he's never had to accommodate another person in his simple life. He's unable to find anyone willing to take her. In spite of his prejudices, Bud grows to like the spunky girl (and her excellent cooking).Eventually, they both find work on a border ranch. Here, the relationship between the girl and the young cowboy hesitantly grows. But banditos raid the ranch, kidnapping the rancher's daughters and Marta. Bud, with twelve other men, pursue the banditos into the most desolate reaches of Mexico. Ambushes and battles with banditos, Rurales, and traitors are constant, and the brutal weather is as much a threat as the man-made perils. Life and death choices are made at every turn as one side gains the advantage, then the other.The rancher's daughters are rescued, and the exhausted party turns back. But Bud presses on alone, against insurmountable odds, determined to fulfill an unspoken promise to Marta.

In 1898, Tasker L. Oddie, a twenty-seven-year-old New Jersey attorney and business executive, moved to Austin, Nevada, to serve as secretary of a company with mining and other interests in central Nevada. Over the next four years, he wrote frequent letters to his mother recounting the rigors of life on the Nevada frontier and the people he met there - miners, ranchers, Native Americans, and the townspeople of tiny, remote Austin and other isolated backcountry settlements. Nevada at the end of the nineteenth century was in economic decline, its known deposits of precious minerals nearly exhausted, its population drifting away to other possibilities. Soon Oddie was also striking out on his own in search of valuable mining prospects, eventually finding his fortune in the spectacular silver deposits of Tonopah, which were discovered in 1900. Oddie's letters are full of vivid details, the lively accounts of a young man eager to experience life and make his fortune, observant and humorous, intelligent and endlessly curious. The letters remain the best records we have of central Nevada when it was still very much an unsettled frontier, peopled by rugged pioneers and ever-hopeful fortune-seekers. Through Oddie's letters, we see the depressing stagnating of mining towns in decline and the hectic excitement of the boom times following the Tonopah strike. This is real grass-roots history, sparkling with information about mining and community building in the frontier West. Eventually, Oddie became wealthy, expanding his interests from mining to cattle raising and going on to enter politics, eventually serving as governor of Nevada, then as U.S. senator. These letters of his youth document not only the spirit that eventually made him a leader of his state, but the state that he was one day to lead. Now available in paperback for the first time, Letters from the Nevada Frontier is an essential resource for anyone interested in the history of Nevada at the end of the nineteenth century.

Killing is easy. Love is... The Hardest Thing James Lear does Lee Child Once a major in the U.S. Army, Dan Stagg fell afoul of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. In his late 30s, tall, and muscular, Dan is prone to violence, always upholding what he views as justice. He’s offered a great deal of money to protect the young male “secretary” of a powerful real estate broker. The vain, shallow—but most of all hot—young man’s idea of protection includes sex. Dan quickly realizes something strange is going on: he’s being used as a shield for a much more sinister operation and must chose between easy money and sex or the ideals that he embodied in the Army. Why should he do the right thing—particularly when the army betrayed him? The Hardest Thing is a sexy gay mystery as only James Lear can write it: filled with lots of gay sexual encounters, romance, sweat, violence, and conspiracy.
