Johnstone—Keeping the West Wild

Young Matt Bodine and Sam Two Wolves became blood brothers on the day the rancher’s son saved the halfbreed’s life, forging a bond no one could ever break. As years passed, a legend grew of the breed and the white man who rode together—and who could jerk killing iron with the best of them…


In Dale, Colorado, any cowboy with good sense knows better than to step through the batwings of the Plowshare Saloon—and any sheep-herder crazy enough to belly up to the bar at the Red Dog is ordering the last taste of whiskey he’ll ever lift to his lips. The town of Dale is heading for an all-out war that will pit father against son, and brother against brother. Bodine and Two Wolves try to make both sides see reason, but that fails when a bunch of hired night riders start scouring the countryside and putting notches on their six-guns. The blood brothers soon figure the cause of the trouble goes a hell of a lot deeper than the grass everyone’s fighting over. A battle’s coming, and they’re about to be caught in the thick of it. But they know it’ll be their kind of fight—dealing out a hard dose of range justice in hot lead…

Live Free. Read Hard.

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.’”

William W. Johnstone writes a classy western novel, his men clean and wholesome and polite, and his ladies strong and brave and full of heart. Gunsmoke and Gold follows that general outline with just a little spice to liven up the mix. Sam and Matt were raised in the west about as close as brothers - they consider themselves blood brothers. Sam Two Wolves, college educated back east, was the son of a Cheyenne warrior and a beautiful white woman. Matt Bodine, of European extraction, was home schooled by his school teacher mother on the ranch his father ran. Both men, mid-twenties, are running fairly large ranches in the far northwest. As their responsibilities allow, the boys occasionally like to wander a bit and find interesting things to do. In the small town of Dale, Colorado they find a community of good people being overrun by true bad guys, and decide to stay awhile. This is a book that was difficult to put down. It is one I can happily recommend to family and friends, and will want to read again some cold winter day. William W. Johnstone is an author I follow and prefer to own his books rather than borrow, so that I may share and read again as I want. I received a free electronic copy of this western historical novel from Netgalley, William W. Johnstone, and Pinnacle in exchange for an honest review. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me.
