Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Borderline
Money is power in the wild west…
With more gold than either has ever seen, Dhu Walker and Ben Lacey are desperately scouting their way to Iowa, where Ben’s sister Katharine is fighting off creditors to keep hold of the family farm.
En route they happen upon a gang of outlaws, known as the Border Rats, holed up in Indian Territory after robbing a bank. Cherokee land is the ideal sanctuary for murderers and thieves like Newt Trainor.
The U.S. government forbids the tribes from arresting white men, and white lawmen rarely bother to do the job themselves.
When they meet, cordially at first, Trainer can smell the gold on Dhu and Ben, and he is determined to get his hands on it.
But Dhu Walker knows these parts; he’s part Cherokee himself. He calls on the aid of the toughest and smartest trackers the Cherokee Nation has to offer.
Together they must find a way to reclaim the gold and save Ben’s sister.
And if in the process they rid the West of a scourge like Newt Trainor and his Border Rats, it will be no one’s loss.
Praise for Robert J. Conley
“Conley portrays the rough and tumble frontier from the Indian point of view… Veteran novelist Conley works on three levels: murder mystery, frontier political potboiler, and the search for personal identity.” — Booklist
“Conley [is] in the ranks of such writers as… Louise Erdrich… and W.P. Kinsella as literary interpreters of the Indian experience.” — Sunday Journal-Star (Lincoln, NE)
“Conley [is] among the most productive and inventive of modem Western novelists” — Dale L. Walker, Rocky Mountain News
“Conley speaks with a clear Cherokee Indian voice to show how his tribe’s cultural characteristics have survived centuries of abrupt change to give readers an understanding of the fullness and humanity of the Cherokees as a people.” — The Cherokee Advocate
Robert J. Conley (1940-2014) was an acclaimed Cherokee author with over fifty books to his name, winning the Spur Award for Best Western Novel twice, as well as another Spur Award for a short story. He was also awarded the 2014 Owen Wister Award for Lifetime Contributions to Western Literature.
