About this title


Davy Nelson rode into Crockett, Texas, exhausted but pleased. He figured he had just about completed the promise he had made to his dying partner on the battlefield near Seven Pines, Virginia, two years earlier.

But, when he climbed down off his bay in front of Roche's saloon, he landed in enough trouble to forever change his life. He hadn't counted on greedy Yankee carpetbaggers who were saddling local ranchers with usurious taxes to steal land for pennies on the dollar, especially since one of the ranches belonged to his dead partner's family. Knowing he had a battle on his hands, he hunkered down for the fight.

Outgunned ten to one, Davy Nelson fought back the way he learned in the Confederate Cavalry: hit and run, decimate the enemy, force them into fatal mistakes. And do it quick---before they hang you.

About the Author:

Kent Conwell grew up in the wide-open Texas Panhandle in the town of Wheeler, population 848. His love for the West came naturally for his grandfather had run away from his Tennessee home when he was 14, bullwhacking his way to the Panhandle where he met his future wife who had traveled from Illinois to Texas.

After moving to Fort Worth, Kent was more at home at the stockyards than school. Somehow, he managed to earn a B.S. and began teaching. Later, he moved to Port Neches where he acquired a M.Ed. and Ph.D. A successful educator, his love for writing about the West, a period in history unique to America, has never waned. He has won awards for short stories, screenplays, mysteries, and westerns.

Promise to a Dead Man is Kent's twenty-eighth western for AVALON.
