Lemhi County Sheriff Coal Savage has realized a little too late that while losing marine and army buddies in Vietnam was bad, it feels a lot worse when the victims are murdered in cold blood--and they are right in the home town where he is sheriff.
Now he is dealing not only with a rebellious fifteen-year-old daughter and a hard-edged but beautiful woman who seems to think he's the scum of the earth, but he is running a race against time to stop a killer who wants him dead.
Everyone believes the killer is Bigfoot Monahan, the largest man in the valley and an ex-con who swore to kill Coal Savage for his part in putting him in the pen. Coal believes it as well--to the point that he finally realizes he is going to have to kill this man first. Before he can kill another of his friends.
When the truth comes home, it hits like the kick of a mule.
Join Coal Savage in a race against time and a race against conscience--kill or be killed.
"The Log of a Cowboy" is an account of a five-month drive of 3,000 cattle from Brownsville, Texas, to Montana during 1882 along the Great Western Cattle Trail.
