Tense, vivid, and surprising from the first page to the last, Here by the Bloods is an instant Western classic.
In the Shadow of Sangre de Cristo Mountains
It happens in a sudden flash of terror. A band of kill-crazy outlaws smash the bank in Caliche Bend, New Mexico. And by the fine white powder that covers everything--even the dead--everyone knows The Snowman has struck again: for this notorious bank robber uses bags of flour to stabilize the nitroglycerin used in his dynamite blasts.
The First Blood has Been Spilled
This time the Snowman has done more than rob a bank. He has made a blood enemy. Harlan Two-Trees loved the murdered sheriff like a father, and sets off to bring the Snowman to justice. Harlan cannot guess how many times he will be betrayed, how a beautiful woman will cross his path, and how violence will rain down all around him... But Harlan knows this: somewhere along the line he himself must become a killer--to stand a chance when he finally looks evil in the eye....
