Praise for Kerry Newcomb's Texas Anthem series: "Adrenaline-pumping!"--Booklist Praise for The Red Ripper: "[A] rangy, fast-moving historical novel [with an] action-filled plot...broad-brush sagebrush scenes and the romance of the Texas Republic."--Publishers Weekly "Readers are rewarded with an entertaining tale of high adventure and low villains."--Booklist "A sizzler...Kerry Newcomb brings to life Big Foot Wallace, a larger-than-life frontiersman who strode boldly into legend. One helluva good book by a storyteller working at top form." --Matt Braun, Golden Spur Award-winning author of The Kincaids "Bounds along with unrelenting vigor. This is historical fiction crafted by a writer who never loses his sense of pace, drama, adventure, and fun.--Cameron Judd, Golden Spur Award-nominated author of Texas Freedom "A compelling mix of passion, revenge, and a gallant people's quest for freedom. With the historical accuracy of a L'Amour novel, the characters are well drawn, leaving the reader to feel the openness and harsh challenges of the Texas frontier...Don't expect to get any sleep when you start this one."--John J. Gobbell, Bestselling author of The Last Lieutenant Praise for Mad Morgan: "Colorful, old-fashioned adventure...Awash with treachery and romance, this well-spun yarn fairly crackles with danger and suspense. Vigorous historical fiction."--Booklist "Swashbuckling adventure!"--Indianapolis Star
