Publisher's Summary

From Western Writers of America Spur Award-winning author Dusty Richards comes a thrilling new chapter in the O'Malley family saga, a blazing American epic of blood, bullets, and brotherhood set deep in the heart of Texas....

Long John O'Malley is only 19 years old, but he's no greenhorn. The oldest and boldest of the O'Malley brothers, Long John cut his teeth tangling with Comanche at the tender age of 16. He risked his life to rescue a group of captive women settlers - and forged his own destiny as a hero in the making. 

Now he's taking on his biggest challenge yet: riding shotgun on a wagon train across the hostile Nebraska Territory. It's a treacherous trail, and it's not long before the young Texan is earning his paycheck by fighting off a tribe of bloodthirsty Sioux. But the real test lies in the journey ahead - a genuine ride to hell and back, from the Rocky Mountains to Sante Fe and all the way home, that will make Long John O'Malley either a living legend...or a dead one.

interesting

An intertwining story set in an interesting period. earlier then most cattle drive westerns. I enjoyed the references to occupied Texas and the post civil war era.
the story was somewhat rambling without the steady build and climax of other western novels. more like a collection of dime store short stories.

EMPIRE BUILDERS

The O'Malley's are good, honest people. I like the way they do business. This is not just another shoot-em up western but a story of how to build a Texas empire with integrity. Unfortunately the overall pleasure of reading this book was severely hampered by the narrator. One of the worst I have ever heard. Will not listen to him again.
