Summary
Boggs is unparalleled in evoking the gritty reality of the Old West. -- The Shootist Red River is one of the greatest westerns ever told, a novel that that became the classic John Wayne movie in 1948. Now award-winning Johnny D. Boggs presents a powerful sequel--destined to be a Western masterpiece in its own right. Return To Red River Matthew Garth was orphaned in a savage wagon train ambush and adopted by Red River hero Thomas Dunson. Twenty years later Matt has two strapping sons of his own and is undertaking a desperate cattle drive from Texas to Dodge City, the new queen of frontier cattle towns. While the deadly dangers of storms and rustlers gather around them, an act of passion and violence from within the drive--and from within the Garth family--leaves Matt fighting for his life, close to where his father was buried by the Red River. When Matt gets back up, he must finish the drive--and fight his worst enemies and even his own blood kin before it ends in a battle of guns, tears, and justice. Johnny Boggs has produced another instant page-turner. . .don't put down the book until you finish it. --Tony Hillerman on Killstraight Johnny D. Boggs tells a crisply powerful story that rings true more than twocenturies after the bloody business was done. -- The Charleston (S.C.) Post and Courier on The Despoilers Raves For The Westerns Of Johnny D. Boggs Another dramatic story by a finalist for the Spur award of Western Writers of America. -- Amarillo Globe-News (on Once They Wore the Gray ) An entertaining western in the classic mold. The characters possess enough human frailty to bebelievable, the author includes interesting stuff on the weaponry of the times, and there is enough gunplay to satisfy genre purists. -- Booklist on Ten and Me Boggs has once more written a humdinger of a book with wonderful characters, even the villains. The Despoilers tears at one's heart, which is what really good fiction should do. -- Roundup on The Despoilers Boggs' unique approach to the Lincoln County War's legal skirmishing is both eye-opening and memorable. -- True West on Law of the Land A finely crafted historical novel with fully developed characters playing out their lives against the backdrop of early Texas settlement. -- American Cowboy on Spark on the Prairie Boggs delivers a colorful, clever and arresting tale. -- Santa Fe New Mexican on Camp Ford
