The Last Stand

Matt Braun

St. Martin's Paperbacks

It is the land of Five Civilized Tribes, stolen from its people by a Federal government determined to make Oklahoma the 46th state. Chitto Starr, a full-blood Cherokee, will not go gently into the night. Instead, Chitto ignites an armed rebellion-and brings an honest , determined lawman onto his trail. For Deputy U.S. Marshal Owen McLain, hunting down Starr and his rebels is the last job he wants-and the one he has to do right, or die. Now, the two men are locked in a duel of cunning and violence on a tragic, history-scarred land. And before one of them dies, they must each make a harrowing journey of honor, courage, and war.

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 thirty-eight novels and four nonfiction works, including Black Fox, which was made into a CBS miniseries. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Spur Award for his novel The Kincaids.
