Firstly, I don't think I've ever read a western before; you know Western as in cowboys and sheriffs and all that stuff but am I glad that I picked up MILES TO LITTLE RIDGE? You bet! Great story with interesting characters and a whole lot more for not a lot of money.

What intrigued me to begin with was that Heath Lowrance is writing about a character, US Marshall Gideon Miles, from the pen of Edward A. Grainger. To let someone else loose with your creation involves such a lot of trust and Grainger must be delighted with the tale that Lowrance came up with.

The characters and the setting are both expertly drawn, opening up with the Swede chopping wood, unaware that his partner, Christian, was becoming aroused by his hard body and the rhythm of the work. So this wasn't what I expected! Go read this yourself - it's not what you expect!

I always think it's a good sign that I'm disappointed when I get to the end of a story. No, I'm not crazy! What I mean is that I'm disappointed that there's not more, that I've already devoured such a tasty offering and Miles to Little Ridge is definitely one of those stories. I've got other Cash Laramie & Gideon Miles stories sitting waiting on my Kindle and they've now just moved rapidly up my TBR list and I'll also be checking out more of Mr. Lawrance's writing with Trestle Press. Oh heck...I think I'm in love again!

African-American U.S. Marshal Gideon Miles in this first-rate novella dashes the stereotypes of the Old West found in its popular literature. Miles has a firm code of justice as a sworn peace officer, but he wields it with compassion, even-temper, and intelligence as he hunts down a wanted bank robber. This yarn makes for an entertaining way to spend a couple hours reading.

It was just a strange twist of fate that bought U.S. Marshall Gideon Miles to Little Ridge. He is looking for Edward Gandy who is wanted for bank robbery in two states. According to the local Sheriff from what little Miles could get out of him, Gandy has been a farmer in the area for the past three years, has a daughter, and is a good guy. The idea that Gandy could have ever done bank robbery is unthinkable to the Sheriff.

Whether or not Gandy was ever a bank robber is not an issue for Miles. He has been told to bring him back and that is what he will do. The Sheriff is going to be useless with the arrest of Gandy and that might be just as well as considering his attitude about U.S. Marshals and African American ones in particular. He is also most likely going to be worthless regarding other potentially dangerous events involving Miles in Little Ridge.

Like others in this series Miles To Little Ridge is another solidly good western. Interesting characters, plenty of twists, and turns along with lots of action makes the series as well as this one good.

Gideon Miles rides into town on the trail of an outlaw but some other outlaws in the town recognize the U. S. Marshall and take exception to his presence. So while trying to mind his own business, the adventures begin. Pretty short but pretty okay.

I was intrigued from the beginning at how this experiment would turn out. Edward A. Grainger (David Cranmer) has created two wonderful characters in Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles. They're personalities have evolved over several stories and have become a couple of my favorites.

Now, he has turned the reins over to Heath Lowrance. I adore Heath's work, both his short stories and longer novel, The Bastard Hand. However, you certainly would not peg him as the next writer of westerns.

However, the collaboration was an unqualified success. Miles jumps off the page here. He's a mix of nobility, anger, an understandable chip on his shoulder and a savvy and capable lawman and fighter. Each of those traits makes its way to the reader through the interactions with the various characters that populate Little Ridge.

A bigoted sheriff, framed outlaws, foolish criminals with a relationship that hides its true nature. All these meet and confront Miles, allowing his character to shine through.

In the end, Miles if first and foremost the officer behind the badge. Capable and duty bound. Not without sympathy, but not willing to shed responsibility, or shy away from conflict. He is a US Marshall, and don't make the mistake of forgetting that.

Miles to Little Ridge stars Gideon Miles, a Western hero created by Edward Grainger (David Cranmer) in his Cash Laramie stories. Miles is different for the time, being an African American marshal on the prod in the old West.

Grainger is evidently intent on spreading his franchise creations because this novella is written by Heath Lowrance. The story reads like an episode from television, concentrating on the action rather than the characterization and history of the land and place.

Miles arrives at Little Ridge with the intention of arresting Edward Gandy, a man wanted for bank robbing. The local lawman isn't interested in helping Miles bring the man in, and it isn't long before Miles trips across a brace of hardcases that intend to leave him in a shallow grave.

Lowrance plays to the action crowd with this one, and it's all straight-ahead shoot-em-up stuff that most Western readers will enjoy. He's got a firm hand on this, and the story wraps nicely.

Miles is an interesting character and I'll be looking forward to seeing more adventures featuring him.
