No writer at work today captures the vanishing frontier like William W. Johnstone. His acclaimed Mountain Man novels have set a new standard for Western fiction, and have brought the history of that frontier to life as never before. Now he continues his masterful storytelling tradition with The Last Gunfighter—a boldly authentic series that weaves together powerful tales of warriors and outlaws, lawmen and adventurers, and the innocents caught in between.
Outlaws had smashed his life, left his wife dying, and carried off his son. Now all Frank Morgan wants is to hang up his guns and settle down in peace. But all that changes when he rides into the middle of a Montana range war, where a valley has been ripped apart by hatred and fear…and where his legend proves to be as dangerous as his gun.
The blood of innocent men, women and children has been shed. On one side is a small army of ranchers; on the other a stubborn band of farming families. With each side suspecting that the other brought in Frank Morgan, the gunman's reputation fans the flames of war. But a strange thing happens to a man who has been living a wanderer's life. In a battle that's not his, Frank must choose a side, make a stand, and be willing to die for a place some people will call home…
