Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"When the young Englishman Baron Jerome Manchester Paget arrives in 1878 Fort Griffin with a satchel full of money to start a buffalo ranch and find a bride, a horde of colorful swindlers from throughout Texas arrive to help him. With a passel of oddball characters and more twists and turns than a stagecoach trail, "The Fleecing of Fort Griffin" pits the baron against crooked gamblers, a one-eyed gunfighter, a savvy marshal, conniving females and a worldly stump preacher. To stay rich, the baron must stay alive Written by Spur Award-winning author Preston Lewis, a master of western plot twists and humor, "The Fleecing of Fort Griffin" takes readers on an unconventional and uproarious journey through the Old West"-- Provided by publisher.
