DON WRIGHT's Gone to Texas is the saga of Peyton Lewis and Fletcher Rucker, two rebel boys whose innocence was destroyed in the bloody wreckage that was the Civil War. Young, desperate men, they fall in with a scheme to rob a bank but are unprepared for the violence that ensues. Sickened by the ravages of war and the wanton cruelty that is the legacy of this bloody conflict, they take their cut and join those who look to the wilderness of the Texas frontier for a fresh start. Along the way they will meet rogues, killers, and two exceptional women, and together they will weather the travails of the new frontier and carve out a new life.
"His characters are right out of Hollywood casting, while his plot inescapably calls to mind films such as John Wayne’s Stagecoach and Clint Eastwood’s The Outlaw Josey Wales…."
"Don Wright has the knack for writing stories based on real people that present a gritty, accurate and inspiring portrait of those who endure and triumph—a testimony to the human spirit."
