Arkansas Smith: The Tumbleweed Trail
For Jake Preston the offer of a position with his brother’s cattle
operation in Kansas City couldn’t have come at a better time. At home in
Wyoming things were not too good, the farm was failing and Jake and his
family were facing an uncertain and scary future. And so Jake, his wife
and three children packed up all their belongings worth taking and left
in a small wagon, traveling overland, wanting to see the remaining
wilderness before civilization gobbled it all up.
They took The
Tumbleweed Trail, hoping to gain protection from the fabled spirit said
to protect those who traveled the trail. And they needed protection too
when a gang of merciless outlaws descend on them but that protection
would not come from any paranormal entity but from a flesh and blood man
– a man called Arkansas Smith.
Why straight to Kindle? Well the book's been sitting on my hard-drive for more than a year. I was going to publish conventionally but as soon as I heard there would be an eBook version of Arkansas Smith I thought this would be a good opportunity to put out the sequel on the back of the original novel. This way new readers who enjoyed Arkansas would be able to jump straight into Arkansas Smith II.
