Hi - I'm in the mood for a great, epic western.
I've read Cormac McCarthy - Blood Meridian and The Lonesome Dove series.
I would not mind some romance mixed in........
Please no self promo........
What would you recommend????

Centennial by James Michener - Great historically accurate record of Colorado.
Blood Brother by Elliott Arnold - Story of Cochise and Tom Jeffords
I'm a big Louis L'Amour fan, but, truth is, a lot of his work was repetitive.
These books of his however are excellent.
Last Stand At Papago Wells

I've just finished my fourth book of the Hopalong Cassidy series by Clarence E Mulford " The Orphan" Absolutely loved the book from start to end. Several of the series can be found for free on Project Guttenberg in Kindle(Mobi) format and other places on the web.

I highly recommend The Romantics by Peter Brandvold. I think it's got the traits you're looking for.

The Wilson Young series by Giles Tippette is my favorite. It's about the life of a like able outlaw.
