The Greatest Western Writers Of The 21st Century

They came by the thousands, pioneers from the east looking for a better life in the west. Led by veteran wagon master Jedadiah Fury and his son Jason, their journey would become the stuff of American legend.

Two of the Johnstones’ greatest novels—A Town Called Fury and the sequel, Hard Country—come together for the first time in this exciting saga of the frontier town called Fury, one that would symbolize the dreams of a nation.

Hell Hath No Fury

For Jason Fury, the frontier proved to be a hard country. Too hard. All he wanted was to get back East, where the hills were green and soft—free of Indians and outlaws on an endless deadly rampage. Fate, however, has other plans for him. When Jedadiah Fury is killed in a Comanche ambush, Jason is forced to lead this ragged band of frightened pioneers deeper into the lawless maw of the Arizona territory. Going up against more outlaws, Apaches, and relentless Mother Nature, the pilgrims find the strength to make a stand and build a town: Fury, Arizona. For Jason, there’s no leaving now. With a badge on his chest, a gun in his hand, he’s an unlikely hero bringing hope, pride, and courage to Fury—by fighting for a future in this hard and violent land.

About J.A. Johnstone:

Being the all around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.

Bill, as he preferred to be called, began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western History library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard—and learned.

“Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling and creating believable characters. ‘Keep the historical facts accurate,’ he would say. ‘Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.’”


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.
