"Once again John Christian Hopkins masterfully weaves a tale of history with heart as he shares this tale of a gunfighter seeking redemption. Hopkins lures readers into putting down their electronic devices in order to delve into life in the Old West." - Stephanie Henningsen, journalist. "John Christian Hopkins' latest effort gets 'two guns' up! This book is a sure shot!" - Darrell Perry, avid reader "John Christian Hopkins has a gift for taking historical facts and presenting them in a fictional setting that makes the characters come alive. In Two Guns he continues the tradition...he writes with blazing accuracy about a place that had a lively past, to say the least. Hopkins reminds us of that with his own unique story telling style." - Bruce MacDonald, journalist Two Guns is an Arizona ghost town located near Flagstaff at the mouth of Canyon Diablo. The boom town sprung up when plans to build a railroad stalled, leaving dozens of men with time on their hands. John Carrier Steele, 45, the man known as “The Widowmaker” has lasted longer than most of the legendary gunfighters; now as the ravages of his age and a harsh life are catching up with him, he must face his greatest challenge—to tame one of the last and wildest of the Old West boom towns, Two Guns. But a man with a reputation has to constantly be on-guard for troublehunters and shootists who want to earn a name for themselves. Some of the townspeople hope to build a town with a future in the Arizona desert, while others just want to get rich and get out. That’s Seth Gratton’s plan and a wide-open lawless town suits his plans. No gunman himself, Gratton needs to find someone to eliminate Steele ... Young Wally Dalton likes to strut about town wearing two guns; growing more eager with each passing day to prove that he’s a fast gun. Wally’s half in awe of Steele and wants what the lawman has: a reputation. As if he didn’t face enough trouble already, someone has been robbing the Flagstaff stage. The stage driver is an old friend and when he is killed during a robbery, Steele vows to avenge his friend. Clara Beauregard: A hardened madam who grew up among the soiled doves. She has no illusions about life and still pines for a never-forgotten love—Steele. Maybe there can be happiness in her future?

About the Author:
John Christian Hopkins is a member of the Narragansett Indian Tribe, a descendant of King Ninigret, patriarch of the tribe’s last hereditary royal family. Hopkins is a career journalist who has worked at newspapers across New England, in New York, Florida, most recently in Arizona. He was a former nationally syndicated newspaper columnist for Gannett News Service. As a child Hopkins slept clutching books to his chest and dreamed of becoming an author. “I’ve never wanted to do anything else but write,” Hopkins said. Though proud of his native heritage—among his ancestors was Quadrequina, brother to Massasoit and the one that introduced popped corn to the Pilgrims at the First Thanksgiving—Hopkins is determined not to be pigeon-holed as a native author, but as an author who happens to be Native American. He and his wife Sararesa live on her Navajo reservation in Fort Defiance, Arizona.
