The Land Tamers

The Land Tamers, historical western fiction by Christy Award winning western author Stephen Bly

It’s 1870. High society would have looked at this man and called him gaunt. But out west the word was hardened. In this historical western fiction, a fugitive from Yankee justice, Confederate veteran Sandy Thompson seeks peace and solitude in the expanses of the untamed West. His quest is complicated by his reluctant business partnership with a low-down peddler named Montana Mudd, and an orphaned Indian girl entrusted to his care.

Somehow, together, the three drifters must find a home in a land where thieves, vengeful Indians, and forces of nature are constantly threatening. And the trio must finally come to grips with the sinister Yankee officer who is determined to see Sandy dead.

Excerpt:

Straight ahead, two thin lines of cold steel melted together and plunged into the western horizon. Behind him, the East. All that Sandy Thompson ever knew existed back there. Too much sorrow. Too much disappointment. Too much trouble with the law. He made a habit of forgetting, but now and then then the memories stole back. The war lost, family scattered or dead, hope harder to find than a whisper on a windy day. He felt the uncomfortable rush of old feelings and quickly looked for a diversion. For the hundreth time his eyes focused on the weathered sign posted at the front of the railway car: May 10th, 1869, Great Event. Railroad from the Atlantic to the Pacific, Grand Opening of the Union Pacific Railroad.
