Overview

In this historically accurate Western epic from debut author Rod Thompson, a young farm boy comes of age in a frontier crucible of death, vengeance, and beauty.
 
When four hoodlums brutally murder a farming family in the Dakota Territory, they leave a fourteen-year-old boy for dead in the field…That’s a big mistake.
 
After bearing witness to the savage acts that destroyed his world, young Cormac Lynch knows only one way to make things right. Coming upon the men, he takes aim and takes his revenge—rescuing the beautiful Irish redhead Lainey Nayle in the process.
 
With a deadly reputation, Cormac grows up to back down from no man…and only one woman. He and Lainey face the danger and anguish of the frontier with grit and humor. But when Lainey’s life is endangered again, Cormac must once again make good on his reputation…
 

Praise

“A daring, very well written debut.”—Booklist

“Combining suspense and romance with coming-of-age elements, this debut Western will have wide appeal for fans of such authors as Elmer Kelton, Sandra Dallas, and Stephen Overholser.”—Library Journal

“It’s one of the finest western novels I have ever read in my life. It’s just rip roaring great! I enjoyed the book immensely and I hope you will write a whole bunch more. If I can help you in any way, or write an Introduction to this book or any other, I would be most pleased to do what I can. You have a life long fan and I will read every book you write. It’s the best book of any kind that I have read in a long time.”—James Drury, star of TV’s The Virginian

“It would be a shame to have missed The Black Hills.”—Billy Etbauer, popular rodeo star and five time Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Bronc Riding Champion
