OVERRIDE

The Kincaids

Matt Braun

St. Martin's Paperbacks

The classic, Golden Spur Award-winning novel of a man, a family, and a nation.

He came off the frontier: a buffalo hunter, a gambler, a loner. In Abilene he won a saloon at cards, and earned the fear of a lawless town. From then on, Jake Kincaid would not be stopped. He began a rampage of ambition and deal-making that forever changed a land called Kansas and the Indian Territories. But along the way the deeds and misdeeds of Jake Kincaid affected more than the frontier-- they shaped the lives of his two sons. One who became a lawman. One who became an outlaw. Both destined to come face-to-face behind blazing guns...

From Wild Bill Hickok to the Dolan outlaw gang to Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders, The Kincaids tells the classic saga of America at its most adventurous-- through the eyes of three generations who made laws, broke laws, and became legends in their time.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

  • Matt Braun

  • Matt Braun is a fourth-generation Westerner, steeped in the tradition and lore of the frontier era. His books reflect a heritage rich with the truths of that bygone time. Raised among the Cherokee and Osage tribes, Braun learned their traditions and culture, and their philosophy became the foundation of his own beliefs. Like his ancestors, he has spent most of his life wandering the mountains and plains of the West. His heritage and his contribution to Western literature resulted in his appointment by the Governor of Oklahoma as a Territorial Marshal.

    Braun is the author of forty-one novels and four nonfiction works, including BLACK FOX, which was made into a CBS miniseries. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Golden Spur Award for THE KINCAIDS.
