The Greatest Western Writer Of The 21st Century

Before the legend of Preacher there was the man, and before the man there was the boy.

In 1812, a twelve-year-old boy is filled with wanderlust and raw courage. He runs away from home to begin a journey from Ohio westward. Along the way, he’ll run up against badlands and bad men. He’ll lose his freedom, gain his freedom, fight in the bloody Battle of New Orleans, and learn the first rule of the frontier: do whatever it takes to survive.

With ruthless enemies after him both white men and Indians Art will head for a place as brutal as it is beautiful the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. The trail he rides will transform the boy into one of the most feared and admired men of his time . . . a man called Preacher.

About William W. Johnstone:

Just to give you a brief rundown on who William W. Johnstone is, here are the basic facts. He was born in Southern Missouri, the youngest of four kids. His father was a minister and his mother was a schoolteacher.

He quit school when he was fifteen and joined a carnival after getting kicked out of the FFL (for being underage), but he went back and finished high school in 1957. After that he worked as a deputy sheriff, did a hitch in the army, came back and went into radio broadcasting, where he worked for sixteen years.

Johnstone started writing in 1970, but he didn't get published until late 1979. He has written almost a hundred books including the best-selling Ashes series and the Mountain Man series. He began writing full-time in the early 1980s and hasn't stopped since. His first published book was THE DEVIL'S KISS and his favorite, so far, is THE LAST OF THE DOG TEAM.
