Synopsis: Ride the Jawbone weaves a compelling story of a gruesome murder and of a young lawyer who is called upon to defend the loathsome vagrant accused of the killing a young woman and throwing her body from the train. When no established attorney will defend the alleged murderer, the judge all but orders young T. C. Bruce, newly licensed to practice law, to undertake the task. While tracking the efforts of the young attorney to save his client from the hangman, the reader is transported back in time to central Montana, its ranching communities, and the famous Jawbone Railroad, as they existed at the turn of the twentieth century. Ride the Jawbone is a history lesson wrapped in a gripping mystery. Richard A. Harlow, without adequate financing is said to have jawboned the first railroad in central Montana into existence, a creation thereafter known only as the Jawbone. T. C. Bruce is the son of a rancher with a large spread near the newly created town of Two Dot. He loves ranching and is torn between his pleasing his father who wishes for him to take over the ranch and his mother who wants him to put his education to use. Two young women, different in every aspect, lend spice to the story. Lessons in the history and culture of place are most enjoyable when encountered in a story with rich characters and a challenging plot. Ride the Jawbone, a 225 page paperback original fills this bill effectively. Readers will learn much about the way of life of ranchers and other citizens of that place and time. The rich, eye-catching cover is crafted from a 1904 painting by R. E. DeCamp, which shows the Jawbone Railroad as it traveled through Sixteen Mile Canyon. A comprehensive discussion guide is included in the back of the book.
From the Inside Flap: T. C. Bruce, newly graduated from law school, rides the Jawbone Railroad from the family ranch in Two Dot to White Sulphur Springs in hope of meeting a certain young lady. The train is abuzz with the latest gossip: A woman has been murdered and her mutilated body thrown from the train. Loco, a surly, odious loner has been arrested, and everyone wants him hanged. The judge asks the young lawyer to defend the man. Can he—should he—save Loco from the hangman?
