William W. Johnstone’s Mountain Man series towers above the landscape of Western fiction, taking readers into the heart and soul of a man who once lived on the wrong side of the law—and now is willing to die for justice.

Smoke Jensen was once the fastest draw in the West. He was also tired of taking on every tinhorn upstart out to make a reputation. So Jensen hung up his .45s for good. Or so he thought…

When A War Never Dies, A Soldier Never Rests.


In the bush country of South Texas, Captain Richard King built a sprawling ranch called Santa Gertrudis. But at the end of the Civil War, while King was in Mexico, his ranch was raided by Union troops led by a sadistic killer who burned Santa Gertrudis to the ground—and slaughtered everyone on it. Thirty years later, King's land is about to run with blood once more. Former Union Captain Jack Brant has gotten out of prison and is raring to pick up his rampage where he left off. Called to Texas, mountain man Smoke Jensen is ready and willing to help King fight fire with fire. Brant isn’t worried about Smoke Jensen—after all, what can one man do?

He’s about to find out…

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.

descriptive death (Wednesday, January 11, 2006)
Reviewer: Warren Smith PhD English Lit

The story line is excellent, the characters are quite outstanding, the langauage should reflect the times, but there is a matter of two much description. The story reads like it was written right out of a zane grey paperback. Zane had the same problem. to much description of the surroundings. it slows down the reading and makes the story read slower than it should.
