Blood Spirit
by Mark Engebretson


Texas was at a pivotal point in 1871. Texans had long sought relief from the devastating raids of Kiowas and Comanches and suffered from cattle rustlers, killers and thieves. It would take the near death of Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman for the Army to answer the call for protection.

Buck Landers, a veteran of the Civil War, settled in Texas in 1865 and earned a reputation as a gunfighter. But he married and settled down to raise a family and make his fortune as a cattleman, hoping never more to use his gun. But the unsettled frontier and his sense of right would play a role in his future.

His sense of right and wrong, his desire for justice and the protection of those without shelter leads him down a trail of danger, one that could mean his death.

The story centers around the astonishing history of 1871 Texas, a time when those who dared faced great hardships. There were fortunes to be made, but the price for many was death.


Mark Engebretson is an award-winning journalist, photo­grapher, and newspaper editor, who was raised in the Palo Pinto Mountain country of North Central Texas, the “Cradle of the Cattle Industry.”

His work, including both fiction and non-fiction, has been published nationally and he has been a contributing writer and photographer for the Associated Press.

He is currently the managing editor of a weekly newspaper in North Central Texas. He has also published The Golden Amulet, and Spirit of the Snake, both engaging western novels with a twist.
