Apache Rampage

Apache Rampage

They made an ill-assorted crowd. The pious citizens of Baptist’s Hollow. Major Ellwood, mayor and town marshal. Doc Thornett’s medicine show, with Madame Fiona, woman bare-knuckle boxer, her daughters, and Elwin, the boy who wanted to be a juggler. Sergeant Magoon, the wild Irish soldier who had brought his men. Chet Bronson and Harris, going to the Stockade for life. Big Em, the female fist-fighting champion of Fort Owen. The miners driven from the hills by Lobo Colorado’s Apache warriors.

There were four Texans also. Three were tall, eye-catching men. Yet when the chips were down and a leader was needed they called on the fourth Texan — a small insignificant, soft talking man. His name was Dusty Fog.

Ranch War

Bloodlands . . . It seems when a lady's called "Calamity," chaos follows wherever she goes -- even to the mostly peaceful railroad town of Mulrooney, Kansas. Martha Jane Canary's always been free as the prairie wind, tied to no place or person, so she never expected to inherit a hardscrabble ranch that other folks have been working. She might have even ignored the legal summons to claim her property ...if someone hadn't tried to kill her first. Now, whether she wants the spread or not, Jane's going to fight for what's hers -- taking on bushwackers, crooked lawyers ...and a woman with a cold and greedy heart, and a plan to steal Jane's land with bullets and brutality. But Calamity's got an ally -- a baby-faced Texas gun called the Ysabel Kid -- not to mention stony courage, a strong and sure whip hand ...and a mule-stubborn willingness to lay down her life for what's right.

Trouble Trail

While underneath for the third time, Hack gripped the lash of the whip in both hands and on surfacing gave it a savage jerk which shot the girl towards him. As he saw her coming, Hack’s mind worked with its usual speed. Once he laid hands on her, he would half drown her, maybe give her a damned good licking to boot as an added lesson not to resist the honourable intentions of Milo Hack in future.

At that point his day-dreams ended. Using a trick taught her by whip-fighting freighters, the girl permitted Hack to believe he was dragging her helplessly forward into his clutches, then when she came into range brought up a kick under his jaw to show him the error of his ways.

Milo Hack reckoned to be a smart man, but he never made a worse mistake than when he tried to rough-hand1e Martha Jane Canary. Not that anybody in the West would know her by that name. They called her Calamity Jane.

The Rebel Spy

But Dusty was used to honest fighting — man-to-man combat or the manoeuvrings and strategy of regimental war. He knew nothing of the double life, the treachery, the skulduggery of a secret agent, until Ole Devil Hardin gave him the assignment of going to New Orleans on a vital mission — in company with the Rebel Spy . . .

The Devil Gun

The Ager Coffee-Mill Gun was the first successful automatic-fire weapon, the most deadly innovation to warfare since the discovery of gunpowder.

One of these guns was in the hands of a pair of fanatica1 Union supporters and the use to which they intended to put it turned Lieutenant Jackson Marsden, West Point honour cadet, into a deserter from his regiment and a traitor to the Union cause. It also caused Captain Dusty Fog of the Texas Light Cavalry to be sent from his command with orders to capture the gun at all costs.

Two young men, one in Confederate grey, the other wearing Union blue, rode three hundred miles with danger and death lurking every inch of the way. At last Dusty Fog stood with his two Army Colts pitted against the fanatics and their Devil Gun . . . with the lives of every man, woman and child in Texas forfeit if he should fail!
