Third generation Texas Ranger Tyler Steele is the last of a dying breed-- a modern day cowboy hero living in a world that doesn't quite understand his powerful sense of right and wrong and instinct to defend those who can't defend themselves. Despite his strong moral compass, Ty has trouble seeing his greatest weakness. His hard outer shell, the one essential to his work, made him incapable of forging the emotional connection his wife Andie so desperately needed. Now retired, rasing their son Brodie on his own, and at risk of losing his ranch, Ty does not know how to rebuild from the rubble of his life. The answer comes in the form of Samantha and her daughter Hope, on the run from a seemingly inescapable situation. They are in danger, desperate, and alone. Though they are strangers, Ty knows he can help-- protecting the innocent is what he does best. As his relationship with Sam and Hope unfolds, Ty realizes he must confront his true weaknesses if he wants to become the man he needs to be.
The created beings called angels, as outlined in the King James Version of the Holy Bible, have amazing abilities. Not being bound to time or space, they are well qualified for the missions assigned them. The angels, such as Angel 942, with their specific history and talents, often combine actions to rescue the Boss’ young humans. A tragedy that splits a family apart was not Plan A, but there had been the minus angels to contend with. No matter. The Boss’ angels knew what would happen and that it could be incorporated into successful Plan B. Young Leticia Morgan went one way and her brothers another, but that was not the end of the story within this historical fiction account. There was the event with horses, a locomotive and the unsafe trestle, and... well, a lot happens before and after this incident, but it’s all in the book. There are numerous accounts of humans being moved in a direction that was not necessarily in their plans. Some are in the Holy Bible, and others go un-noticed, but some happen like the one in this book... all with angelic help and direction that is not necessarily recognized.

Auto shows have become a big hobby here in the middle western United States. I personally know of over seven hundred annual auto shows within three hundred miles of Kansas City. I believe the sport is growing throughout the United States at a rapid pace. My wife and I have competed in enough auto shows that we have seen what will and will not work. It is always a big disappointment when we attend an auto show that makes major mistakes. We never repeat a show that makes major blunders. We feel it is obvious they don't know what they are doing. Most people feel that way. Once a show makes major errors, the word circulates and the show's future is doomed. I am constantly contacted by people who want to produce an auto show but don't know how to do it. People are always wanting me to give them some pointers on some aspect. I decided to write this book and include the knowledge I have gained in over thirty years of showing automobiles. I believe it will be of help to those who know little of the subject and to those others who want to fine tune some areas of their show. Producers that follow the guidelines contained in this book will have the best chance for a perpetually successful auto show.

For a brave band of Texas pioneers, new enemies awaited on the thundering trail. But old enemies were the deadliest of all. The only riches Texans had left after the Civil War were five million maverick longhorns and the brains, brawn and boldness to drive them north to where the money was. Now, Ralph Compton brings this violent and magnificent time to life in an extraordinary epic series based on the history-making trail drives. The Dodge City Trail Dodge City was a businessman's dream. And a cattle drive north-with thousands of unbranded longhorns and a remuda of stolen Mexican horses-was a dream of Texans like Dan Ember, who'd come home from the war to find a rich man's hired guns living on his land. Now Dan and his neighbors would risk everything on a drive across the Llano. Along the way, two bands of killers would fight over them, the gunslinger Clay Allison would join up with them, and Quanah Parker's Comanches would try to thwart them-in a bold adventure fueled by the courage to face death, the pride to keep going, and the knowledge that now, there was no turning back.
