Johnstone Country. Frontier Spirit Lives Here.

The masters of American frontier storytelling return with the saga of a bold, fearless western legend. When you’re a gun for hire, the difference between right and wrong is settled with a bullet . . .

Buckhorn

Crater City, New Mexico, is a bustling mining town brimming with the stench of men hungry to get rich the old fashioned way—killing the competition. Dennis Conroy is the owner of the biggest saloon in town, and he needs a few good sharpshooters to help protect surveyors laying out a route for a spur railine before his rival Hugh Thornton beats him to it. Joe Buckhorn’s handy with a gun so he takes the job. Against his best advice, he’ll also take a liking to the boss’s daughter, which doesn’t go over well with her father. Worse, Buckhorn starts wondering exactly what kind of man he’s working for. Before the sun goes down much blood will be spilled and a lot of men will be blasted into the middle of next week.

Joe Buckhorns aims to be sure he’s not one of them.

Live Free. Read Hard.

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.
