It's time for a bit of a sprucing-up, so I've put a new cover on the novel:
Here's what the novel is about.
Carl Owen doesn’t intend to lose anything—not his land, not his cattle, and certainly not his girl—ever again!
The young cavalryman returns from the Civil War to find the family farm destroyed, his favorite brother dead, food scarce, and his father determined to leave the Shenandoah Valley to build a cattle empire in Colorado Territory. Crossing the continent, Carl falls in love with his brother’s fiancée while set to wed another girl, but he might lose everything if the murderous thug Berto Acosta has his way. Carl battles a band of outlaws, a prairie fire, blizzards, a trackless waterless desert, and his own brother—all for the hand of feisty Ellen Bates.
The new cover is on the e-book right now at the major online retailers, and will appear on the print book soon. Here's where you can buy it, if you don't have it in your digital library yet.
