The Owl Hoot Trail Book One

Gold in the Red Desert

In Gold in the Red Desert, T. H. Bear introduces his readers to Reb Brown, a returning prisoner of war from the Federal Prison at Point Lookout, Maryland. Within months of his homecoming, the authorities falsely charge Reb with a capital crime and he must flee his home state of Georgia, just ahead of a lynch-man’s posse.

The Owl Hoot Trail leads him from a murder committed among the cypress and sweet gum trees of South Georgia to a murder among the sagebrush and prickly pear on the Red Desert of central Wyoming, at a time when the cry of “Gold!” was raging throughout the Sweetwater Region.

By witnessing the back shooting of Rob Scogins on a lonely night in the middle of nowhere, Reb is swept into a fury of dangers and adventures in which he never shucks a task. With his Colt and Yellowboy in hand, he meets challenge after challenge, face to face.

Indian fights, claim jumpers, bank robbers, stage hold-ups, and gunfights, are but a nuisance and interruptions to the romancing of the beautiful woman that crosses his path in his endeavor to right this wrong and see that the true offenders are made to pay for their crimes.

Adventures and interruptions you, too, will enjoy,
As you ride with Reb Brown on The Owl Hoot Trail.


T.H. Bear is an author of Historical Novels, Cowboy Action adventure tales, Murder Mystery thrillers and is just plain the damnedest story teller since Louis L'Amour or Zane Gray graced our hearts and minds through the window of our eyes.  

Come ride with us on a quest for knowledge as we investigate the soul that makes up this complex yet so common a man that if you shared with him a seat on a Boeing or Western Electric rail car, you would never suspect seated beside you was 'The Story Teller.'
