No one captures the glory, adventure, and drama of the courageous men and women who tamed the American West like award-winning, bestselling author Terry C. Johnston. His Plainsmen series brims with colorful characters, fierce battles, and compelling historical lore.

For in the in the fury of defeated warriors, the seeds are sown for a new—aand even bloodier—chapter in the Indian Wars.
