Will Parks: Road to Hangtown

They told Will Parks that the Oregon Trail would lead him to a promising new land where he could strike it rich at mining, or running a saloon, or whatever he wanted to do. They were mostly right.

They didn’t tell him about the Comanches, the outlaws, the vigilantes, or the dock gangs in the new boomtown in San Francisco. Will had to find out about all those things the hard way.

Luckily, Will is a force to be reckoned with. He knows what to do about this kind of thing.

Took up this book and from the first few pages I knew it was going to be my cup of tea and it was really loved the story line and the main hero, these type of westerns are great but they always get me in trouble with my wife I lose myself in the story and although I wear hearing aids she’ll swear that I really ignore her when trying to get my attention,good books always cause bother in our house.

“Mike Stone: Texas Ranger” was a fantastic and very enjoyable read. This story details Mike Stone who moves to Texas and gets the calling from the Texas Rangers. This was just a great, old-fashioned, fast-paced western that leaves you wanting more. Additionally, the author did a great job of developing the characters, and providing a great ending with a great sense of justice. …a great read that I highly recommend.
