Fresh from a war with rival rancher Miguel Aguilar, and still licking family wounds, Martin Baron and his son, Anson, go their separate ways as Jory Sherman continues the epic saga of the Barons.

Martin heeds the call of the Texas Rangers, hoping to restore honor to his native Texas as the storm of war quickly approaches. News from the east speaks of a long and drawn out conflict between the Union and the Confederacy. Though Martin never believed in slavery and holds no loyalty to the Confederacy, the Rangers seem like his best bet to defend his home, and perhaps give him the opportunity to bring Aguilar to justice.

Unlike his father, whom he sees as abandoning the ranch in its time of greatest need, Anson stays behind to pick up the pieces after the war. He wishes to bring the Barons' ranch to new glory, but to do so, he'll need to capture the elusive white bull, El Blanco Diablo, to sire his herd. And of course there's Lorene Purvis, the beautiful woman who's pledged her love to Anson; she may be the key to a new start.

The trail soon grows rocky for the Baron men. When Aguilar escapes after a bloody ambush, he has nothing but revenge against the Baron family festering in his head. Meanwhile, Anson's vaqueros have abandoned the Baron ranch, and a band of Apache have set their sights on making it their own the only way they know how . . . by killing the man who runs it.
The Barons have always been respected, but as rough times roll in, they're forced to reevaluate where their friends' loyalties lie, while also questioning their own. One thing's for sure, they won't lay down without a fight, and they'll do anything to defend The Baron Honor.

“The truth is always made up of little particulars which sound ridiculous when repeated.” So says Jack Crabb, the 111-year-old narrator of Thomas Berger’s 1964 masterpiece of American fiction, Little Big Man. Berger claimed the Western as serious literature with this savage and epic account of one man’s extraordinary double life.

After surviving the massacre of his pioneer family, ten-year-old Jack is adopted by an Indian chief who nicknames him Little Big Man. As a Cheyenne, he feasts on dog, loves four wives, and sees his people butchered by horse soldiers commanded by General George Armstrong Custer. Later, living as a white man once more, he hunts the buffalo to near-extinction, tangles with Wyatt Earp, cheats Wild Bill Hickok, and fights in the Battle of Little Bighorn alongside Custer himself—a man he’d sworn to kill. Hailed by The Nation as “a seminal event,” Little Big Man is a singular literary achievement that, like its hero, only gets better with age.

Praise for Little Big Man
 
“An epic such as Mark Twain might have given us.”—Henry Miller
 
“The very best novel ever about the American West.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“Spellbinding . . . [Crabb] surely must be one of the most delightfully absurd fictional fossils ever unearthed.”—Time
 
“Superb . . . Berger’s success in capturing the points of view and emotional atmosphere of a vanished era is uncanny. His skill in characterization, his narrative power and his somewhat cynical humor are all outstanding.”—The New York Times
