If I was to be an outlaw, I told myself, I’d be a hard one, and I’d be a good one. I’d be the god damnest outlaw that ever come down the pike...

Scrawny, young Melvin Parmlee lit out of Texas wearing a pair of old overalls and riding a swayback horse. His crime: killing a man with an axe handle for shooting his dog. Out ahead lay a land of prairie, mountains, boomtowns, whores, gold, and outlaws. And behind him was a long, twisted trail that was getting more crowded with enemies every day.

Fugitive's Trail continues Robert Conley's Texas Outlaw series with the saga of Melvin Parmlee. It is a rollicking tale, an authentic portrait of the American West, and the gripping drama of a boy becoming a man--amongst the wildest men of all.

Praise for Fugitive's Trail

“Kid Parmlee ain’t much shucks with the King’s English but he’s loud and clear when he talks with his six-shooter. Robert Conley spins a fast-action tall tale salted with Western humor.”—Elmer Kelton
