"A boy with a borrowed badge. An Indian lawman with a new kind of firearm. And an outlaw gang that wants these pilgrims dead... William Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone tell the story of the frontier in a brilliant new series based on the guns of the West--and those who used them to survive. It's a repeater. It's a shotgun. In the wrong hands, it's one deadly weapon... Young James Mann came from Texas to find his missing uncle in the lawless Indian Territory. Then the boy's father came after him. Now they've earned the wrath of the vicious McCoy-Maxwell gang, who are about to pull off their most savage attack. But the Manns of Texas have a secret weapon- Deputy Marshal Jackson Sixpersons. While repeating rifles are spreading across the frontier, Sixpersons carries an oddity- a 12-gauge, lever-action Winchester shotgun. Soon Sixpersons will use his smoothbore to blow a hole in the outlaw gang. And when the gun smoke and blood clear, a boy must pick up the gun and use it like a kill."

display_description On the American frontier, every gun tells a story. A boy in Texas waits for a Christmas present he chose from a Montgomery Ward catalog. The present, a brand new, lever action Winchester 1886 and a box of its big .50-caliber slugs, never makes it there. Instead, the rifle is caught up in a train robbery and starts a long and violent journey of its own--from the hands of a notorious, kill-crazy outlaw to an Apache renegade to a hardscrabble rancher and beyond. But while the prized Winchester is wandering the West--aimed, fired, battered and bartered--Deputy U.S. Marshal Jimmy Mann is hunting for the outlaw who robbed the train in Texas.
