by Dee Brown

A western adventure of love, money, and determined pursuit Captain Westcott receives the news that a wagon train has been raided. Two officers have been wounded and four civilians killed-among the dead is the woman who was traveling to the western frontier to become his wife. Authorities believe that the prize was six thousand dollars, and that the local Arapaho Indians are responsible-a curious assumption given that the greenbacks in this area are the preserve of soldiers, not the tribes. But it soon becomes apparent that there's more to this raid than money. Having no time to lose, Westcott promptly sets out to hunt the band of raiders, on a mission that will contain more surprises than he could ever have expected. Alive with suspense, The Girl from Fort Wicked is a riveting portrayal of America's rugged frontier landscape, its language, and its unusual characters. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dee Brown including rare photos from the author's personal collection.… (more)
