rode by Thomas Fox Averill
Averill's novel captures the spriit of the ballad "Tennessee Stud" while telling the story of Robert Johnson, a man who holds love in his heart though adventure rules his time. Pursued by a bounty hunter, Indians, and his conscience, Johnson and his horse are tested, strengthened, and made resolute.

RUINS by Margaret Randall
