TWO SISTERS REVENGE: TALES OF THE OLD WEST BOOK 86
Paul L. Thompson
Tom Stillison was gone from home in Arkansas for just over two years. He was looking for farm and ranch land for his family. He bought and paid cash for the Tapia Ranch in Peṅasco, New Mexico Territory. It entailed a beautiful home, barns and corrals, fifty-four hundred acres of ranch and farm land. Most of the farm was irrigated thanks to the Picuris Indians.
Mister Tapia had said, “The banker in Taos wants this land, wants to steal it. He offered only half what it is worth. Mister Stillison you have property that will feed your family. I am old, now I go to Albuquerque to live with my daughter.”
Tom returned to Arkansas to fetch his family only to find his wife Arlene, only thirty-two years old had died of consumption. But he still had two beautiful daughters, Helen fourteen and Maggie sixteen. They loaded two wagons with everything they owned and headed seven hundred long slow miles to Penasco, New Mexico.
TYLER PURDOM: SILVER EAGLE
In Silver Eagle, Tyler Purdom is a young man headed west with no destination in mind and no plans for what he was going to do when he got there. He had two Kentucky horses, a Winchester rifle, Sam Colt’s .45 and wasn’t thinking of anything else, until a chance encounter with an Indian attack on a wagon train with a beautiful young woman changed everything.
Ty grew up shooting, squirrels, turkeys, deer and of late, men. Grant’s Pass was headed for trouble, gun trouble and Ty couldn’t stand by and watch Big Ben and his men murder, rob and run rough shod over honest citizens. Pa always said, “If a man knows right from wrong, then he just needs to do what’s right.” That’s what he intended to do, it wasn’t going to be easy and it wasn’t going to be pretty.
