Six-Guns and Slay Bells, Story 2

Angel of the Badlands

This is my story, so it's hardly fair that I review it. So I'll just give you enough of what's going on to whet your appetite.

On a lonely trail in the New Mexico badlands, Jonah Stark takes a bullet in the back. Men rob him and leave him for dead. But Jonah's not one to give up. The robbers have kicked him down the hill to die, but he refuses. Though delirious and bleeding, he refuses to give up.

A rider comes, looks him over, but doesn't help. Still, he won't give up. Delirium takes over, and he dreams of Katherine, his long dead sweetheart and wife.

Jonah Stark is back-shot, sunburnt, dried out like a prune, but still alive. For all that can mean. I'll leave it to you to find out if this tough man can survive.
