Troy D. Smith

Author Troy D. Smithabout this book: This book has a special place in my heart- it's the first western I ever wrote, in a new edition by Western trail Blazer. Legends never die, they say... but stories do end. In this elegiac novel, celebrated lawman Luke Temple comes out of retirement to face down a violent gang of killers, and ultimately revisit the site of a youthful confrontation with an old enemy half a century before. He rounds up a posse comprised of his best friends from those years, and saddles up one more time. If it's his last ride, he aims to make it count.

Along the way they encounter many challenges -not the least of which is time, which seems to be passing them by. The world has changed since Luke's youth as a Texas Ranger under the tutelage of Bigfoot Wallace. The new generation of outlaws and lawmen have either never heard of Luke Temple, or they idolize him -but none of them understands him.

Luke Temple has also appeared in several of my BLACKWELL short stories, and will continue to do so from time to time.
