Will Rogers wrote, "Charlie Russell is the only author a true cowboy can't find fault with." Rogers also considered Charlie America's best story teller, cowboy humorist, and sagebrush philosopher. Though Charlie was under-schooled and semi-literate, his salty Rawhide Rawlins yarns still delight readers almost nine decades after he "crossed the big divide." Richard Baker has long striven to bring Russell's wit, humor, cynicism, and horse sense back to life. In this collection of Western yarns, Mr. Baker utilizes Charlie Russell as his narrator, depicting Charlie telling yarns in his personal style, utilizing ample dry humor expressed in colorful cowboy lingo. These yarns cover many facets of late-nineteenth-century cowboy life, the good times and the hardships, the joys and sorrows, and above all, the humor and good nature of the western folk icon, the American cowboy. This book is a must for fans of cowboy humor, salty western metaphors, and sagebrush philosophy.

In A CLASH OF HONOR (Book #4 in the Sorcerer's Ring), Thor has returned from The Hundred as a hardened warrior, and now he must learn what it means to battle for his homeland, to battle for life and death. The McClouds have raided deep into MacGil territory—deeper than ever before in the history of the Ring—and as Thor rides into an ambush, it will fall on his head to fend off the attack and save King’s Court. Godfrey has been poisoned by his brother by a very rare and potent poison, and his fate lies in Gwendolyn’s hands, as she does whatever she can to save her brother from death. Gareth has fallen deeper into a state of paranoia and discontent, hiring his own tribe of savages as a personal fighting force and giving them Silver Hall—ousting The Silver and causing a rift in King’s Court that threatens to blow up into a civil war. He also schemes to have the fierce Nevaruns take Gwendolyn away, selling her off in marriage without her consent. Thor’s friendships deepen, as they journey to new places, face unexpected monsters and fight side by side in unimaginable battle. Thor journeys to his hometown and, in an epic confrontation with his father, he learns a great secret of his past, of who he is, who his mother is—and of his destiny. With the most advanced training he’s ever received from Argon, he begins to tap powers he didn’t know he had, becoming more powerful each day. As his relationship with Gwen deepens, he returns to King’s Court in the hopes of proposing to her—but it may already be too late. Andronicus, armed with an informer, leads his million-man Empire army to once again attempt to breach the Canyon and crush the Ring. And just as things seem like they can’t get any worse at King’s Court, the story ends with a shocking twist. Will Godfrey survive? Will Gareth be ousted? Will King’s Court split in two? Will the Empire invade? Will Gwendolyn end up with Thor? And will Thor finally learn the secret of his destiny? With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A CLASH OF HONOR is an epic tale of friends and lovers, of rivals and suitors, of knights and dragons, of intrigues and political machinations, of coming of age, of broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal.

After being bushwhacked and nearly killed by two paid shooters, each with a $20 gold piece, the mysterious rider known only as Mr. Smith learns that a fancy Dude from the East, Owner of the Silver Spur Saloon in the town of Apache Trail, has put a price on his head. Not knowing why, and wanting to find out, Mr. Smith sets out for Apache Trail to find the Eastern Dandy, and squeeze him for answers. But Apache Trail - that once dusty hole of a town in the middle of nowhere - has its own secrets. Now that the Railroad is nearby, and mining and lumber have made the town boom again, there are forces in motion that involve millions of acres of land, including Indian lands, and the Legendary Devil's Canyon which supposedly leads through Spirit Mountain to the long-lost Apache gold. Meanwhile, the Eastern Money Syndicate is mounting its own forces to take over the railroad, and the town, and the land, the mining, the lumber - and Spirit Mountain. These are two growing forces heading for each other. And Mr. Smith is smack in the middle of it. But why is Mr. Smith so important? Why would someone want him dead? Intertwined within this story is the tale of a young man, some 30 years later, his mysterious past and reappearance at the mouth of Devil's Canyon, and the equally mysterious Old Indian who befriends him. Now, some years later, the Young Man returns, and he and the Old Indian embark on a trek to Spirit Mountain, and through Devil's Canyon. Each has his own secrets, and reasons – and each of them is directly tied to, and with, the events that happened to Mr. Smith. Seeking answers, all roads lead into Devil's Canyon, through Apache gold, and into Spirit Mountain. That sacred place, guarded – so the story goes – by the ghostly Riders on the Wind.
