On his way out West to find land of his own, Ben Tower finds and rescues beautiful Mattie Sullivan, the lone survivor of a doomed wagon train. Ben and Mattie soon fall in love and plan to travel West to start a new life together.
But the trail westwards is never easy, and wild animals, greedy ranchers, flash floods are just a handful of the hazards they encounter, not to mention Ben’s past catching up with him. Will they ever fulfill their dream of establishing their own little empire in the West?
Born in the Midwest, Will Starr has lived in his beloved Arizona so long that he’s considered a native. Since retiring from the construction trade, he has devoted his time to writing and has won numerous awards. His first love is the Western and “Empire” will be his first Black Horse Western novel, but certainly not his last. When not writing, Will Starr can be found panning for gold in the vast Sonoran Desert.
