"He thought that this was why he'd become a newsman. Yes. A paper's principle purpose was to report the news and earn a profit, but once in a while, a paper could become a beacon, a lantern, a bonfire for the good."--from the book It's 1877, and all over the West, frontier towns have sprung up, drawing those in search of new beginnings after the Civil War. The young community of Payday is a paradise of rolling meadows and balmy skies, with a quiet population of ranchers and merchants. Into this Eden comes young editor Sam Flint, whose fledgling newspaper, The Payday Pioneer, earns him friends within the town and trumpets Payday's glories throughout the West. Sure enough, The Payday Pioneer lures settlers to the town. But to Sam's dismay, they are settlers of the wrong kind. Soon Flint finds himself in the middle of an all-out war for control of the town. Perfect Payday is in danger. But Sam Flint will put his life on the line for what he believes in.

About the Author:

Patrick Cullen (a.k.a. John Lescault), a native of Massachusetts, is a graduate of the Catholic University of America. He lives in Washington, DC, where he works in theater.

From AudioFile:

In 1877 when Flint is invited to establish a newspaper in an idyllic town in the Southwest, he finds himself in the thick of conflicts over the direction of the town's future growth. Incompatible personal ambitions, criminal elements and still raw memories of the Civil War all thicken the mix. Patrick Cullen has a comfortable yarn-spinner's voice and moves the story along effortlessly. He differentiates characters very little and occasionally mispronounces Spanish terms, but these are not serious impediments to the unfolding of an engaging plot. J.N. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
