    Saddle up and ride the same wild lonesome trails as US Marshal Shorty Thompson did in the 1870s through the 1890s. Feel the dry heat of hot desert floors and the bitter cold of snow-covered mountain passes, as Shorty gets shot and survives as he goes after lawless men. Though the novels are written about things that happened over 140 years ago, many of the old towns can be visited today. Many are in ruins, destroyed, but others still survive as haunting ghost towns.

    Saddle up and ride the same wild lonesome trails that US Marshal Shorty Thompson rode from the 1870s through the 1890s. Short of stature but with a heart as big as the Southwestern sky, Marshal Thompson traveled throughout the territories of 19th century New Mexico and Arizona during the height of American expansion westward.

    The 1870s: As opposed to the myths of popular culture, not everybody was swaggering around with six-irons strapped down and leading lives of mayhem. But there were the exceptions - every bit as evil, bloody, and deadly as legends portray. And so too was the law that handled these outlaws. In the mold of men like Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp, MD Shorty Thompson is just that kind of lawman: Short on stature but tall on guts. Hand-picked by President Rutherford B. Hayes, he is one of best.

    Good solid Western

    Book 7 of Paul L. Thompson's western saga was engaging, and at times put me in the saddle with a six shooter in my hand and lead a-flying. But a go..Show More »

    A young mother's heart is most ripped from her body, as she holds her dying baby boy in her arms. Not three feet away lay her dead husband. She saw as two men saddled and stole Morris horses and a third gunned down two of the people she loved most. When the posse came looking for the men, US Marshal Shorty Thompson would not let her take up the trail after them. No, these men will know what real fear is as a mother's wrath slowly, and very painfully, destroys them.

    Revenge is a Great Motivator

    It ranks as a good western with a different twist.

    Whiskers McPherson headed west to the Rocky Mountains. Set upon by road agents twice before getting to the Mississippi River, he realized he was a greenhorn and needed a rifle and pistol to survive. Heading west across Kansas, for the first time in his life, he found what real fear was. Indians kept him hunkered down in a buffalo wallow for days before cowboys rode up and saved his life. Instead of letting him ride on to certain death, the ranch these cowboys worked for would not let him go on west until he learned everything they knew about surviving.

With blood dropping down the side of his head, the outlaws thought them dead. But they survived. When the killers left, their fathers were to be buried before they continued their trip to a ranch their fathers had purchased in the New Mexico Territory. They had no hope of ever catching the killers, but strange events prove otherwise.

    "Dear Shorty, it saddens me to let you know Matt was killed and robbed of $11,000 and was buried today. April 19, 1881. Almost half of the stolen money was to pay off our ranch which the bank will foreclose on the first day of September. I know who killed my husband but the law cannot find him. It has been told he has family in Montana. I need your help if at all possible, or the children and I shall lose the ranch." Shorty told his partner Buffalo he may be gone for months, but will write when he can.
