- 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.

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.
