About the Author
Being the all-around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.
He began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western history library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard—and learned.
“Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. ‘Keep the historical facts accurate,’ he would say. ‘Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.’”

he had hid the gold. Well Perley, located the ten sacks of gold dust. Now Perley has to get back to Texas with the gold and this is a DANGEROUS trip. Perley encounters a person named Tuttle who had met Perley while he was camping during the night, Perley being a cautiously soul invited him in to share his fire and so offered food and coffee. While partaking Perley's offering a couple of nere-do wells cowboys approach the camp site demanding the return the sack of gold that the three had ambushed a miner for. Now Tuttle of course denied that he had the gold. Perley killed the two ambushers and told Tuttle he needs to move on down the trail. So Tuttle does, but he's wondering what's really in those sacks of corn, what's is Perley really carrying...gold maybe. Because they were coming out of the Black Hills were anyone who had a shovel and a sieve could pan for gold. Tuttle follows Perley hoping to see what's in those sacks corn, which leads to Tuttle's death. He tried to get Perley by ambushing him at his campsite by shooting Perley in his bedroll, but Perley knew not to sleep so open, he had slept in a different spot, so Tuttle ended up shoot by Perley, and that was the end of Tuttle trailing Perley. Perley knew Tuttle wasn't any good so he became fodder for the desert and sky creatures.
A good reading, lots of soul, characters are scary...you know the kind you cross street so there's no problems, and you can see where he's going. Who can't love the name "Perley Gates"
