Synopsis

True Grit, Texas-Style

From the great-grandson of famed U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn comes an exciting new legend of the Old West—the epic story of a hero, a family, and a sprawling frontier just waiting to be tamed…

Before the Civil War, Argyle Dollarhyde had everything a man could ever want: a beautiful wife, three strong sons, and a prosperous stake in the booming cotton industry. But now, Union troops have left the South in ruins—and Dollarhyde’s life is in shambles. Refusing to fall prey to carpetbaggers, Dollarhyde gathers up his family and sets out for the one place a man can still live free: Texas. Where the natives are as dangerous as the land itself. Where wagon trails are forged in blood, cattle drives are defended by bullets, and oil fields are ripe for the taking. Here, with only a tiny dugout cabin and small herd of longhorns, Dollarhyde and his sons will carve out their future on the American frontier. This is their story. A grueling test of Lone Star grit. A defiant legacy of Lone Star pride. A life-or-death struggle for Lone Star freedom…and, finally, justice for all.

Brett Cogburn is a Spur Award-winning author and the great-grandson of the man who inspired True Grit, Rooster Cogburn. He was reared in Texas and the mountains of Southeastern Oklahoma, where his grandfather taught him to ride a bucking horse and his father taught him to hunt. For many years he made his living from the back of a horse. Somewhere during his knockabout years cowboying and working in oil fields, he earned a BA in English with a minor in History. He lives with his family on a little ranch in Oklahoma, where the West is still teaching him how to write.
