about Nueces Blood
Nueces Blood: Texans Prepare for War, the fourth of the Tumbleweed Sagas, continues the epic adventures of protagonist Texas Ranger Captain Luke Dunn. Dunn’s life becomes forever entwined with the rough and tumble prairies of the Nueces Strip of 1860. As immigrant-turned-lawman, Dunn continues his quest to deliver justice, as murderers, swindlers, whores, robbers, and savages are wrapped into this exciting tale set on the Texas frontier stretching from Corpus Christi west to Laredo and south to Brownsville. Nueces Blood absorbs us in the events and accompanying dynamics sweeping southern Texas during the time leading up to the War Between the States. Danger lurks at every turn. Prairie fires, blizzards, floods, stampedes, desperate killers, rustlers, and savages are part and parcel to Luke’s life. Just about anywhere he rides, death could be reaching for his reins. Comanche call Dunn Ghost-Who-Rides, Luke’s and young Elisa’s passions set the prairie ablaze, paid killers seek to rid the Strip of Dunn’s justice, savages fight back against their certain demise, new threats to justice emerge, and everything converges at little Nuecestown, Texas.
