    Tom Holloway and his Southern friends are excited about their prospects in joining the war effort, but the only thing they know of battle is what they've read about in newspapers. They envision the whole thing as an adventure, something to prove their manhood, to make them into men, and a diversion from their sometimes boring school regimen. Ultimately, they anticipate becoming heroes on a winning team.

    Words from a grizzled war veteran makes Tom wonder whether his ideas of war are more romantic than realistic. As he marches off with his friends to battle with the Yankees, he remembers the harsh illumination he'd been given from a soldier with experience. Watching friends and comrades die in a volley of gun- and cannon-fire on blood-soaked ground teaches the foursome the truth of war. Will hell, hunger, cold, fatigue, fear and resignation be the only comrades they have left?

    Sending Josh Holt and his friends home to Daddy tied backward on their horses might seem a cruel thing to do, but fast-thinking Deputy U.S. Marshal Stan Hankins figures it's better than sending them home dead. 

    Hankins and his partner Chico Wrath find and arrest outlaws who've fled to Indian Territory in the 1870s to escape the law. Sure-as-shooting it's a dangerous job that doesn't pay very well. Still, at the end of the day, it beats farming!

    The road from Louisiana to the L Bar Ranch on the Bosque River, Texas is a long and dangerous one, but for Earl Lamar, recently discharged sergeant from the First Texas Confederate Cavalry, it's the only way home.


    After surviving the war, discharged Confederate soldier Earl Lamar learns his parents didn't...and the responsibility of the L Bar Ranch falls to him. 

    After selling enough cattle to care for the original cowboys and new families, the Esperanzas and the Roses along with cook Henry Spooner, Earl has his work cut out for him keeping the ranch going with rustlers, conmen, false imprisonment and Comanche raids all presenting tough challenges to be overcome. When Earl falls in love and he and Gloria find themselves expecting their first child, he begins to hope that maybe, just maybe, a new life awaits him on the Bosque.


    "Trouble on the Bosque" is an absorbing story of a Civil War veteran returning to his Texas ranch and rebuilding his life. I was hooked from the first paragraph and never wanted to put it down.

    The road from Louisiana to the L Bar Ranch on the Bosque River, Texas is a long and dangerous one, but for Earl Lamar, recently discharged sergeant from the First Texas Confederate Cavalry, it's the only way home.

     

    In June 1866, Texas struggles to recover from the conclusion of the War between the States. Though cattle aren't worth much in Texas, other places clamor for beef, and the Goodnight-Loving trail opens that summer to sell cattle to the U.S. government looking to feed reservation Indians. Earl Lamar, owner of the L Bar Ranch, decides to add two hundred head from his own cattle herd to Charles Goodnight's first drive to the Pecos River.

    With gold in his pocket, Earl sets his sights on returning home to meet his new son Ralph, but trouble is brewing in Texas, and Meridian and Bosque County won't be left out. Rustlers, bushwhackers and carpetbaggers threaten the stability and future of Earl's ranch. A ruthless banker and his gang put Earl and his cowboys out of commission, then kidnap their women and children. Little do they realize Earl and his men are indeed alive, if not well, and have every intention of rescuing their families.

    The road from Louisiana to the L Bar Ranch on the Bosque River, Texas is a long and dangerous one, but for Earl Lamar, recently discharged sergeant from the First Texas Confederate Cavalry, it's the only way home.

     

    Earl Lamar, former Confederate soldier and Bosque County Texas rancher has made two successful cattle drives, selling cattle to keep the L Bar Ranch in business. While driving his herd safely across the Red River and Indian Territory will bring in enough gold to keep his ranch afloat for a long time to come, the danger in taking the trail to Kansas can't be overlooked with treacherous rivers to cross, Indians to avoid or fight, bad weather, and ruthless cattle thieves always lying in wait. 

    Earl manages to return home in one piece just in time to meet his new daughter. But a carpetbagger Texas governor seems intent on playing rough with former rebelling states by making things as miserable as possible for native Texans. To make matters worse, the KKK raids Earl's ranch and Texas no longer seems to have a hope or prayer of ever returning to normal.
