A novel by

 
 
Demetrius and his gang of vicious cutthroats had already attempted to steal Lu Lacy's herd. Then they attacked Lu herself ...
That's when Buchanan and his partner, the prizefighter Coco Bean, rode in.
Before long, Buchanan was acting as trail-boss, his job to push a mixed herd up the Western Trail to Dodge City. Trouble was, the odds were all stacked against him. There were Indians to contend with, there were hired gunnies, and there was drought. But he couldn't afford to fail. So Buchanan did the only thing he could - he strapped on his guns and took the fight to the enemy ...

William Robert Cox (1901-1988) was a writer for more than sixty years, and published more than seventy-five novels and perhaps one thousand short stories, as well as more than 150 TV shows and several movies on film. He was well into his career, flooding the market with sports, crime, and adventure stories, when he turned to the western novel. He served twice as president of the Western Writers of America, and was writing his fifth Cemetery Jones novel, Cemetery Jones and the Tombstone War, when he passed away. He wrote under at least six pen names, including Willard d'Arcy, Mike Frederic, John Parkhill, Joel Reeve, Roger G. Spellman and, of course, Jonas Ward. Under the Ward byline, he wrote sixteen adventures in the Buchanan series, all of which will be published in ebook by Piccadilly Publishing.
