Short Story Collection
Set in 1880s Nebraska, Prosch’s stories in this collection tell of characters out where “settlements were still sparse as wild strawberries.” Prosch’s stories draw fiercely on that solitude. His knight errant on horseback, Coburn, takes trails that sometimes lead to the heart of darkness. Out here, where a villain is free to do whatever he can get away with, a man’s family may go missing and the town where they lived become a mysteriously burned and blackened ruin. –from the Introduction by Ron Scheer
Authentic western action about people who seem as real as your next-door neighbors. Richard Prosch brings the west to life in a way that few writers can.
–Bill Crider, author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes series
Dark, gritty, great characters, and vivid–everything a good western should be.
–Peter Brandvold, author of the Cuno Massey series
