Courage, integrity, and honor were highly respected traits among the men and women who built lives in the early days of the American West, but were they ever subject to indecision, doubts, worries, loss, guilt, and even fear? Yes, after all these were real people with all the same emotions we deal with today. Yet they prevailed, making the right decisions, quelling the doubts, and overcoming their fears.

Among the 17 stories in this collection you will meet people like Cooper Thompson who can no longer run from his family in "He’s My Brother," and Cassie Dahlman who sets out to defend her rights in "The Shooting of Rebel Tanner." U.S. Marshal Preston Yates investigates four murders connected to a letter in "The Double Deal." There is an accounting for loose tongues in "Watch Your Words," overcoming loss, doubt, fear and worry in "Mrs. Reynolds," and "Old Nate’s Farewell," and witness the consequences of deception in "I Did You Wrong." Along the way you will also meet Eli and Rob in "Beaver Valley," Case Bristol in "Monty’s Last Hand," and Ward Pohl in "The Blood Oath," all of whom set out to right wrongs that have been done.
These are men and women of the true westward movement, not the “Western Myth” as some claim. It was real and so were the people.
