Content descriptions

General Note:
Includes excerpt from Rattlesnake Wells, Wyoming.
Summary, etc.:
"In his mountain-man days, Elwood 'Firestick' McQueen was practically a living legend. His hunting, tracking, and trapping skills were known far and wide. But it was his deadly accuracy with a rifle that earned him the Indian name 'Firestick.' His two best buddies are Malachi 'Beartooth' Skinner--whose knife was as fatal as a grizzly's chompers--and Jim 'Moosejaw' Hendricks, who once wielded the jawbone of a moose to crush his enemies in the heat of battle. Of course, things are different nowadays. The trio have finally settled down, running a horse ranch in West Texas--and spending quality time with their lady friends. But if you think these old boys are ready for lives of leisure, think again ... Firestick is the town marshal. Beartooth and Moosejaw are his deputies. And when a hired gunman shows up with bullets blazing, these three hard-cases are ready to prove they aren't getting older. They're getting deadlier..."--Page 4 of cover.

Being the all-around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.  
He began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western History library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard&;and learned.
&;Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. &;Keep the historical facts accurate,&; he would say. &;Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.&;&;
