From the Pages of Spurs & Six Shooters Comes A New Western Series By Howard Donovan

Stormgate Press is happy to welcome Howard Donovan. Howard wrote RUGGED #1 The Outcast, which is a continuation of the character "Bowen", that debuted in Spurs & Six Shooters Tales of the Old West, also written by Mr. Donovan.

With S&SS being well received by readers, this is a fantastic time to continue with the western genre and RUGGED #1 is a great time for readers of old west stories to come aboard. 

Here is the back cover blurb for the book:

From the pages of Spurs & Six Shooters: Tales of the Old West, comes Bowen. 

The Oregon Trail – riding scout for a wagon train has never been more treacherous. Crossing the plains of an untamed wilderness with dangers at every turn – haunting. 

Shadowed by a pack of renegade Cheyenne Dog Soldiers threatened by the expansion of the white man. They terrify the homesteaders by systematically attacking the wagon train whittling away their resolve. 

Bowen must risk everything and ride deep into Cheyenne territory in hopes of finding a way to stop the horrific attacks on those in his care and brokering a peace with the tribal leaders. 

Peace is threatened however, when the wagon train is savagely attacked killing several in the company and kidnapping two young children from their families. 

Can Bowen rescue the little girls and prevent the Oregon Trail from running red with blood.
