True Grit, Texas-Style From the great-grandson of famed U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn comes an exciting new legend of the Old West-the epic story of a hero, a family, and a sprawling frontier just waiting to be tamed. Before the Civil War, Argyle Dollarhyde had everything a man could ever want: a beautiful wife, three strong sons, and a prosperous stake in the booming cotton industry. But now, Union troops have left the South in ruins-and Dollarhyde's life is in shambles. Refusing to fall prey to carpetbaggers, Dollarhyde gathers up his family and sets out for the one place a man can still live free: Texas. Where the natives are as dangerous as the land itself. Where wagon trails are forged in blood, cattle drives are defended by bullets, and oil fields are ripe for the taking. Here, with only a tiny dugout cabin and small herd of longhorns, Dollarhyde and his sons will carve out their future on the American frontier. This is their story. A grueling test of Lone Star grit. A defiant legacy of Lone Star pride. A life-or-death struggle for Lone Star freedom.and, finally, justice for all. Praise for Spur Award winner Brett Cogburn: "Fans of frontier arcana will revel in Cogburn's readable prose and lively characters." -Publishers Weekly on Rooster "Cogburn amazes and astounds." -Booklist

Author Bio: Brett Cogburn

Author Bio: Brett Cogburn

Brett Cogburn was reared in Texas and the mountains of southeastern Oklahoma. He was fortunate enough for many years to make his living from the back of a horse, where on cold mornings cowboys still straddled frisky broncs and dragged calves to the branding fire on the end of a rope from their saddle horns. Some folks are just born to tell tall tales. Growing up around ranches, livestock auctions, and backwoods hunting camps filled his head with stories, and he never forgot a one. In his own words: “My grandfather taught me to ride a bucking horse, my mother gave me a love of reading, and my father taught me how to hunt my own meat and shoot straight. Cowboys are just as wild as they ever were, and I’ve been damn lucky to have known more than a few.” The West is still teaching him how to write.
