Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

BLACK SUN

Grueling winter gives way to bloody spring as Seamus Donegan and his fellow Army scouts ride west with the Kansas Pacific Railway. Led by the legendary “Buffalo” Bill Cody, they withstand blazing hit-and-run raids by Cheyenne Dog Soldiers…while being trailed by a skulking enemy from Donegans past. Then, in midsummer, the fleeing Cheyennes camp—and the 5th Cavalry mounts the brutal surprise attack that would give rise to a fierce new warrior-leader named White Horse: the Battle of Summit Springs, 1869.

“Rich and fascinating…There is a genuine flavor of the period and of the men who made it what it was.”—Washington Post Book World
