Epic Western Saga

Higher Ground book cover

Higher Ground is the final installment of McKendree Long’s historical fiction trilogy featuring ex-Confederate soldiers “Dobey” Walls and Jimmy “Boss” Melton. A dogged search for evil wrongdoers takes them across the West, where they happen across the likes of Bat Masterson and “Wild Bill” Hickok. The gem of this story is the reportage of the 1876 Little Big Horn battle which is well detailed, and told from the view of the Indian camps and the soldiers, giving the readers a “you are there” feel. Long’s entertaining dialogue doesn’t disappoint, albeit it’s from many (maybe too many) characters.

Monty McCord, author of Mundy’s Law
