The Greatest Western Writer Of The 21st Century

In the harsh, unforgiving American frontier, in the vast wilderness that is Wyoming, a ruthless gang of cutthroats is ripping a bloody swath of death and destruction through the territory. No one can stop them. . .no one, that is, except for a legendary mountain man named Matt Jensen.

Massacre at Powder River

The year is 1884. A 10-year-old British boy has come to visit his uncle's Wyoming spread, just as the vicious Yellow Kerchief Gang has the ranch under siege. Outgunned and outmatched, a British rancher is willing to pay $5000 for help. That is more than enough money to bring Matt Jenson into the fray. A huge, bloody gunfight, fueled by betrayal, erupts at the Powder River. But Matt has to shoot carefully. The Yellow Kerchief Gang has a hostage--the British lad named Winnie. And Matt has history on his hands, because Winnie Churchill must survive. . . Fifty years later Winston Churchill will fight a war of his own--carrying a Matt Jenson .44 shell in his pocket and a gunfighter's spirit in his soul.
