Print Oliver gave his blood and his soul for the Confederacy. Then he came home to find his family ranch under siege from Union carpetbaggers and his neighbors turned against him. For the Texan there was no choice but to blaze a trail toward power, rounding up wild longhorns and driving them toward markets from Galveston to Abilene. But as Print forged an empire, his family paid a heavy toll. Now he had to make a bitter choice-- between the blood of his own kin and the land he'd claimed with a dream.

MATT BRAUN was a fourth generation Westerner, steeped in the tradition and lore of the frontier era. His books reflect a heritage rich with the truths of that bygone time. Raised among the Cherokee and Osage tribes, Braun learned their traditions and culture, and their philosophy became the foundation of his own beliefs. Like his ancestors, he spent most of his life wandering the mountains and plains of the West. His heritage and his contribution to Western literature resulted in his appointment by the Governor of Oklahoma as a Territorial Marshal.
Braun was the author of forty-seven novels and four nonfiction works, including Black Fox, which was made into a CBS miniseries. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Spur Award for his novels Dakota and The Kincaids and the 2004 Wister Award for Lifetime Achievement in Western Literature. Braun passed away in 2016.Review:
“Matt Braun has a genius for taking real characters out of the Old West and giving them flesh and blood immediacy.” ―Dee Brown, author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee
“Braun is one of the best!” ―Don Coldsmith, bestselling author of the Spanish Bit saga
