THE GREATEST WESTERN WRITER OF THE 21ST CENTURY William W. Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone, the beloved, bestselling frontier writers, chronicle the true story of John Henry Sixkiller: born on a Cherokee reservation, known as the most cunning lawman in the West.
THINK LIKE A CRIMINAL. STRIKE LIKE THE LAW . . .
Sixkiller has come to Ringgold, Wyoming, on the trail of Bart Skillern, a vicious murderer he’s been carefully stalking for weeks. But before Sixkiller can strike, Skillern takes a job with the town’s duly elected mayor, a politician so corrupt that the only way to get near him is by being even more corrupt. So Sixkiller takes a job as a hired gun, and sets out to destroy the mayor’s gang from inside out. Sixkiller’s carefully masked plan is just about to work when he discovers that, except for one beautiful, crusading newspaper woman, there’s not a decent soul in Ringgold to take over from the power-crazed mayor. Now Sixkiller can’t leave Ringgold behind until he tears it apart—pitting one bad man against the other and praying that the Lord and a Colt will somehow sort them out . . .

Being the all-around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.
He began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western History library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard—and learned.
“Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. ‘Keep the historical facts accurate,’ he would say. ‘Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.”
