"In this bittersweet visit to a simpler time in the American Southwest, Ralph Reynolds crafts a fictional story based on an old oral tradition about the time Butch Cassidy and his gang invaded a New Mexico village near his hideout and shot up its Mormon church. Butch carries the Bible in a saddlebag, the Book of Mormon in his left hand, and a sawed-off shotgun in the right. Sparks fly when Butch—the son of a Mormon bishop and a legend in these parts—and the local bishop-turned-lawman face off for control.
Matters get considerably more complicated when two rival outlaws vie for the heart of the beautiful Mormon maiden Deseret, pulling the gang apart from within. Then a cattle drive spins out of control, threatening the peace and safety of the area. Suddenly, two enemies are forced to work together to turn the herd.
Praise for other works by Ralph Reynolds
“I think The Killvein White is breathtaking. It has richness, tidy and neat discrimination about the different characters, and more suspense than even George Stewart could manage in his novels about weather disasters.”
—Glenn Leggett, author of The Prentice-Hall Handbook for Writers
“In Growing Up Cowboy, Reynolds draws the wild beauty of his surroundings without getting trapped in clichés. Every loving description of the countryside shows his visceral attachment to the land of his birth.”
—Davenport Times, Iowa"
