My dad loves Westerns and has read lots and lots of them. I'm looking for a newer copyright of one that he might not have read. Can anyone recomment a NEW one (hopefully even in a hardcover edition) that was a good read? Thanks

Check out Elmer Kelton's last book, OTHER PEOPLE'S HORSES. It just came out. He is of course, the best of all western writers.

I tried to find Other People's Horses by Elmer Kelton but only found a book by that name written by another author. It is actually "Other Men's Horses"...just thought I'd let you know!

I can't say for sure that someone who is interested in a "straight" western will like it or not, but I found Justin Allen's new book, _Year of the Horse_ to be extremely enjoyable. It's a sort of fantasy/western so if fantastic elements turn you off you might not like it. But, it's also quite a nice western story, too, so if you don't mind fantasy elements, or think you might not mind them, or especially if you like them, it's a great book. It's officially marketed as "young adult", and though I think it's acceptable for younger readers it has a lot of creative use of older stories and tales that will make it very fun for older readers, too. I highly recommend it.

The Dark Wind Howls Over Mary
I am the author of this western sold on amazon. It is paperback. The story is set in Sully Town, Montana and filled with colorful characters. The main character is Sheriff Stringbean Hooper who's job description of sheriff is relaxing with his feet on his desk while he watches the town from the office window. That all changes when the town doctor's wife disappears. Hooper finds himself in the middle of a feud between cattle baron Mac Strummer and the doctor. He is shot from ambush and has to hide out at the wash woman's house on the edge of Sully Town. The best informant he has is a white woman/ Indian shaman who felt the dark wind howl over Mary Strummer. Hooper's only backup is a part time deputy pig farmer and a gun toting woman rancher set on marrying the sheriff. Hooper finds himself fighting for his life and his bachelorhood while he solves the disappearance of Mary Strummer.
Give this book a try and if you like it, watch for a Stringbean Hooper Western book two to be out soon.

Just finished reading "Riders of the Purple Sage", the original manuscript version which included so much more than the publisher allowed. Rich descriptions, tension and cultural dimension that makes this a wonderful read.

Also, try Paradise Ridge, a 21st century novel about a young cowboy born of the myth of the Seventh Son. Leandro's existence causes a grave rift in his father's family and Leandro is given the opportunity to heal ancient wounds and bring new prosperity by his "accidental gifts." This story pulls from the buckaroo, Basque and Shoshone cultures to show the raw beauty that still lives as free as the wild horses that roam the Nevada ranges.

Hi everyone, I have spent the last two years writing a Western novel. I had a ball doing it. When I give it to people they say things like "they couldn't put it down" ect. Now the hard part. Getting it out there. I am on Amazon but realize that it is hard to be noticed. So I am giving the ebook version to any forum members that want it. Just contact my website and mention this forum. I will send you an attachment at no cost.
