Description
Countless perils menaced the early settlers of the Wild West - and not the least of them was the lack of medical care. Dr. Dane Logan, a former street waif who has been adopted by a doctor's family in Cheyenne, puts his lifelong dream to work filling this need. His renown as a surgeon spreads throughout the frontier, even while his love grows for the beautiful Tharyn, an orphan he lost contact with when he left New York City as a child. Will happiness in love ever come to Dane - or will the roving Tag Moran gang bring his hopes to a dark end?
Showdown in Cheyenne
1880. The frontier is uneasy. Tag Moran and his vicious gang are roving the West, robbing banks and stagecoaches. Dr. Dane Logan, a former street waif adopted by a doctor's family in Cheyenne, is gaining renown for his delicate surgical skill. Dane's situation becomes precarious when an unfortunate death turns Tag into his bitter enemy. If outlaws come between the tall young surgeon and his childhood love, who ll be left to see another sunrise?
Story Behind the Book
Always planning ahead for what we will write for Multnomah Publishers, JoAnna and I decided to follow the ORPHAN TRAIN trilogy with one about a medical doctor in the Old West, so we came up with the idea of a trilogy called FRONTIER DOCTOR. We introduced a teenage boy in the final ORPHAN TRAIN book who has a burning desire to one day become a physician and surgeon. This first book in this trilogy keys in on this young prospective doctor. Seeing history through this young doctor's eyes will deeply touch your heart and make these books impossible to set down. We also think you ll find this new trilogy filled with our faith gained from so many years of serving the Lord and trusting His written Word.



About the Author
I managed to obtain my college education by attending night classes at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, California, giving special interests to the field of computer programming. It was shortly after that when I made the move to Colorado and have remained here ever since. I first began writing fiction in 1997 while on a bowhunting trip to the majestic Sangre De Cristo Mountains of beautiful central Colorado. The desire to write that initial novel just sort of flared up after having read a few books by Author/Evangelist, Al Lacy. I wrote that first novel, MUSTANG JUSTICE, on a notepad with a pencil (well...a few pencils really). One thing led to another and now, as of the time of this writing, I find myself not only the father of five wonderful daughters, but have also played a major role in the creation of 23 additional offspring...the titles of which are listed in the 'Books by r. William Rogers' section of my books. Having served in the US Air Force during the Vietnam Conflict, I managed to get through that all in one piece and now enjoy a leisurely life in Widefield, Colorado, with my wife of many years.

Al Lacy has written more than one hundred historical and western novels, including those in the Angel of Mercy, Battles of Destiny, and Journeys of the Stranger series. He and his wife, JoAnna, are coauthors of the Mail Order Bride, Hannah of Fort Bridger, Shadow of Liberty, Orphan Trains, Frontier Doctor, and Dreams of Gold series. The Lacys make their home in the Colorado Rockies.
