Description

The Greatest Western Writer Of The 21st Century

On A Trail Blazed With Blood

The Sante Fe Trail stretches from the Mississippi River to New Mexico Territory through the West's most savage lands. That's why a wealthy trader hires the mountain man called Preacher to keeps his trade goods safe--and hopefully deliver a flock of pilgrims to a Promised Land.

One Man Knows His Way

A young prostitute. The spoiled son of the wagon train owner--these are a few of the souls Preacher must protect. But then a rifle goes off at the wrong moment. A towering grizzly bear attacks. And both outlaws and Comanches ambush the wagon train. . .

Behind The Barrel Of A Gun

Now, the travelers are surrounded by predators of every shape and stripe. For Preacher, there is only one way to go--straight into the heart of danger, to blaze a killing trail of his own. . .

Being the all-around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone. He began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western history library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard--and learned. "Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. 'Keep the historical facts accurate, ' he would say. 'Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.'"
