From Western Writers of America Spur Awardwinning author Dusty Richards comes a blistering new novel in his OMalley saga, trailing one familys epic struggle to live out their dreams on the deadly battleground of the Texas Frontier Whip Station, a critical stop on the Butterfield stagecoach line, is dead smack in the middle of no-mans land. The lawless call it an easy target. Joe OMalley calls it home. If anybody can tame a wild, violent territory, its the seasoned frontiersman. So can his family, who have the same pride and honor coursing through their veins. Helping to plant roots is his son Jackson, a former wrangler married to a steadying force of nature. Joes grandchildren have their own brand of grit. The boya firebrand with a knife. The girlbook-smart and wicked-wise. But Whip Station is also hunting ground for Mexican revolutionaries, savage Indians, post-war renegade Confederates, and the deadliest outlaws who ever drew a breath. Its time for the OMalleys to take aim. With a rawhide-tough will to survive, theyre banding together to protect their future against the most savage odds imaginable.
