Dodge City is the second of three historical novels depicting the life of fictional plains adventurer, Lane Collier. This time Collier is a professional bison hunter during the great Southern herd slaughter of the early 1870s. He has formed a successful partnership with Abraham Marmaduke McKnight, a wildly notorious thumper, gambler, and whoremonger. In spite of his lack of civility, McKnight is also a loyal, honest, and dedicated friend. The men set off on one last hunt south of the Dead Line into hostile Indian country to pursue the last remnants of the great herd. Although the legendary frontier settlement of Dodge City is most closely associated with Texas cattle drives of the 1880s, its founding was as a center of the buffalo hide trade. Dodge City takes the reader on a historically accurate professional hide hunt describing the trade and dangers associated with chasing spikes. The book also presents the romance and mystery of the open plains before white settlement. Collier again takes up his legendary Remington Rolling Block rifle as he ventures into the Llano Estacado region of West Texas. Not only does he encounter the buffalo, but also an old antagonist attempting to drive him from the last remainder of the Indian Southern hunting grounds. He is also embroiled in the discovery of Spanish Canyon, the renowned site of CoronadoOCOs hidden treasure. Plenty of action, adventure, and history await in Dodge City. Join the second of a series that enjoys national serialization in SHOOT! magazine, a chronicle for Old West and living history enthusiasts. Boson Books offers several westerns by Randy D. Smith.

Scott City is the third of three historical novels depicting the life of fictional plains adventurer, Lane Collier. Collier returns to Kansas to help his step-daughter and son-in-law preserve their ranch against the ruthless aggression of Texas cattleman, Dusty Hollingsworth. Hollingsworth is the last of the old-time free-range cattle barons who cannot accept the encroachment of homesteaders and the enclosure of small ranches by barbed wire. Using hired gunmen and crooked politicians he maintains his dominance through force of will, intimidation, violence and murder. Collier, equally a man out of his time, uses his skills as an old-time lawman and professional bison hunter to counter HollingsworthOCOs aggression. He finds himself caught in the middle of a struggle of legal authority against moral integrity. The Ladder Creek country becomes clouded with gunsmoke as these two titans of the Old West face each other in a struggle of good against evil. Old friends and adversaries from earlier Collier novels return to fill the pages with new exploits in a rapidly fading frontier. Scott City is a classic old-time shoot-em-up filled with intrigue, mystery and romantic escapades. Join the third of a popular series that enjoys national serialization in SHOOT! magazine, a chronicle for Old West and living history enthusiasts. Boson Books offers several novels about the Old West by Randy D. Smith. We also offer the nonfiction books Heroes of the Santa Fe Trail: 1821-1900 and Hunting Modern South Africa with Powder and Ball by Randy Smith.
