Windward West

Matt Braun

St. Martin's Paperbacks

The Brannock brothers couldn't be more different, but they have one thing in common: the drive to make their dreams come true in the wild and wide-open southwest territory. Virgil Brannock's got plans-big plans: From Washington D.C. to the most desolate reaches of the territory, he'll build a railroad empire with sheer guts, raw ambition, and hot lead... Clint Brannock is a solitary man by nature, but that doesn't stop him from joining up with the Cavalry in a violent charge that will darken the desert sands with blood... Earl Brannock lives by no law but his own-until he finds a new code of honor with the Comanches. But will his brotherhood with that fierce, proud tribe put him at odds with his blood kin?

Now, on a harsh frontier where weakness equals death, three brothers will cross paths once more-and three men's conflicts will come to a head as a new page in history is written amidst greed, gunfire, and the quest for glory...

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-seven 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 and the 2004 Wister Award for Lifetime Achievement in Western Literature
