Douglas Hirt Books Overview
A spellbinding new series begins with the intertwining stories of the passengers and crew aboard the pre Civil War Mississippi steamboat Tempest Queen, including a charming gambler, a beautiful chambermaid, and a captured escaped slave.
Book 2 in The Riverboat Series In the golden age of the Mississippi, the river was a path that led to freedom, opportunity, and danger. Captain William Hamilton’s Tempest Queen was his life, and he would let no one take that from him. On board were the beautiful Miss Cora Mills, the kind of lady men fought over; Lt. Sherman Dempsey, delivering gold to Fort Leavenworth; and ‘Reverend’ Saunders a scheming river pirate.
Kit Carson is in for the ride of his life when he finds himself trapped on a flimsy raft hurtling down the roaring Green River, straight into a mysterious canyon surrounded by impossible sheer rock walls. Kit’s first worry is finding a way out until he comes face to face with a primitive tribe of Indians.
Inspired by thoughts of wealth and a brighter future, a varied group of men and women, many recent immigrants, seeks their fortunes in the dangerous gold mines of Colorado.’
Perhaps Nathaniel Jones was naive. Or perhaps he underestimated the savagery of the frontier, a land very few had set eyes on, let alone survived. But as a newspaper reporter, he had a job to do. Little did Jones know, however, that as a special correspondent to General George Custer’s military expedition, he would not only witness the conquest of the West, but would also find adventure beyond his wildest dreams.
They are not wanted where they come from. They are not welcome anywhere. They are outcasts, rootless and friendless, until luck or destiny throw them together. A former Apache scout shunned by his tribe, an ex-Union Army major, a former Confederate captain, and two army deserters, all forced to band together to stay alive Can they bury their anger and work together long enough to do what they have to do? Can they make it to Mexico to rescue a band of friendly Apaches who have been captured and sold into slavery? It is no easy task, because even if they manage not to kill each other, there are plenty of others eager to do it for them.
LAW OF THE NOOSE They were a rootless bunch, friendless and unwanted, shunned by everyone except each other. They were the Outcasts, a ragged group of men who made their own way through an unforgiving West, and who knew what it was to be hated. And who recognized injustice when they saw it. So when they saw an innocent black wrangler framed for a murder he didnt commit, it stuck in their craws. Some of the townspeople called the sham trial Black Justice. To the Outcasts it was just a legal excuse for a lynching. Either way, an innocent man had an appointment with the hangman find the real murderer in time.

A dark power is at work, intent on gaining complete control of the Cradleland, the birthplace of the still young world.

And yet it’s from that faith that a prophecy threatens all plans of world dominion. A promise, spoken from the heart of Eden, warning of a human son yet to come. A man who would strike back with a crushing blow. The darkness is determined to stop that from happening.

Footsteps froze and eyes went wide while birds exploded from treetops and filled the sky in frenzied flight. But ‘he’ knew. And he understood.
