About

Overview

Ethan Wilder has been off in the mountains hunting for the last several months. He is the eldest son of Jacob Wilder‚ owner of the Bar Five Ranch. Jacob runs a few head of cattle to pay the bills and keep the family stocked in what can’t be raised‚ hunted‚ or traded for. Some of the newer citizens in this part of Montana Territory claim the only thing Jacob Wilder can raise with any success is hell and sons — he has three of them in addition to Ethan. Like father‚ like sons.

Five Star First Edition Westerns Standing Order Plan

Five Star Westerns are standard print, first editions from top Western writers. The majority are brand new manuscripts from the best contemporary writers; a few are serials from magazine publications of many years ago, and -- occasionally -- we find an unpublished manuscript from some of the classic Western writers of a bygone era. Five Star consistently brings you the best quality writing the genre has to offer. Five Star Western authors have won numerous awards including the National Cowboy Hall of Fame’s Western Heritage Award, Levi Strauss’ Golden Saddleman Award, the Spur Award from Western Writers of America and many regional awards as well. The Western genre is not dead! The Western story is the American story. There’s a morality and a certain nobility in Westerns, not consistently found in other genres. Westerns are much more than guns and horses. Strong characters and a strong sense of place and time characterize all our Five Star Western titles. Five Star publishes the best Westerns available today by the top writers of both the present and past. All are published in our durable library edition hardcover format. Actual covers may be different from those shown.

Reviews

"A man's single-minded quest for vengeance is a traditional western theme, but this one doesn't feel like a traditional western. It's darker, harder around the edges, a noir crime drama wearing western clothing. Ethan Wilder is a two-fisted 1940s antihero transported to the Wild West, and fans of both noir and westerns should give this book thumbs-up." -- Booklist Review, January 2011
