Summary

An anthology of traditional and contemporary western short stories where the characters are lain bare.

 
Feel the pain of a young Japanese girl who comes home from an internment camp after World War II and learns it’s easier to go with the flow than to fight the current.



 
Struggle with an expectant mother on the cold winter prairie while she waits for her husband to come home from a hunting trip.



 
Journey with a young woman to the Four Corners as she tries to connect with her Navajo ancestors.



 
Try not to believe in the superstition of the blue moon—if one dies, three more will follow.



 
Know that one way or another, life will change inalterably that day.



 
Walk in the footsteps of an old cowpoke who thought he made the deal of a lifetime.



 
Suffer the torments of a young lady who wants desperately to marry but seems destined never to wed.



 
Walk the wild western paths and run from unimaginable dangers.



 
Choose between an unhappy life of luxury or a happy life of simplicity.



 
Nine female authors pen western tales that you’ll want to retell around a campfire. These aren’t your granddaddy’s westerns. They’re the next generation’s, and they’re darn good.

    What are you hiding behind your smile? If those empty bottles that line the walls of your room could speak, what tales would they spill? So much of your truth is buried beneath the lies you tell yourself. There’s a need to scream to the moon; there’s this urge to go out into the darkness of the night to purge. There are so many stories living inside your soul, you just want the opportunity to tell them. And when you can’t find the will to express what lives within your heart, these words will give you peace. These words will set you free.
