Aaron Turner is a tall redheaded fifty-three year old minister and Lieutenant Colonel in the Texas militia. Duty calls him to participate in both the Cherokee and Wichita Wars. He and his family struggle to survive the financial panic of 1837, Indian raids, a whooping cough epidemic and scorching drought. He responds with optimism, determination and innovation. When money is scarce, they gather and sell wild horses. When food is scarce, they travel to the dangerous Comancheria to hunt buffalo. As the Mexican-American War erupts, Aaron is commissioned Colonel of Scouts and leads a regiment that will play a significant role in the conflict in a faraway land. Will the time come when the old warrior will lay down his saber? Will he hang up his guns in peace at last? RIDE FOR THE LONE STAR, the fourth volume in the Western Quest Series, follows Aaron Turner, his family and friends, through the turbulent days of the Republic of Texas, culminating in the annexation of Texas by the United States and the Mexican-American War.

A graduate of Texas Tech School of Medicine, he has worked as a pediatrician in rural Plainview, Texas since 1984. He is married with two married children. His other time is spent on their panhandle ranch, raising horses and hunting.

ON THE WESTERN TRAIL, the seventh book in the Western Quest Series, follows the rough and tumble life of Aaron Lloyd Turner as the burgeoning cattle business reaches its zenith and gradual decline to something more like what we know today. Aaron and his friends hit their stride in the cattle business busting maverick cattle out of the wild lands along the far reaches of the Colorado River at the very edge of frontier Texas and driving the wild hardy longhorns up the newly opened Western Trail to Dodge City, Kansas, the Babylon of the Plains. They battled Indians and nature itself to get there. But change was already in the wind. Windmills and water wells expanded the vast areas of previously unusable prairie to grazing. Barbed wire established boundaries of ownership and made gathering far-flung herds a thing of the past. It also gave the cattlemen the opportunity to fence good English bulls with their longhorns resulting in much better and earlier maturing animals. But the final nail in the coffin of the wild and wooly days of the cattle drive was the arrival of the railroad across Texas. Cattle drives that had taken three or four months could be made in a one to a few days. New towns, such as Abilene, Texas, replaced Dodge City. The ever adaptable Aaron was a leader in implementing these changes and establishing for generations yet unborn a new type of sustainable ranching in Texas. Aaron also comes into his own as a man. He discovers his inner strength and values and his natural leadership shines through, even as he wrestles with inner demons. He meets and marries, Ella, the love of his life. Finding a foundation that will sustain him through his long life, he rediscovers a relationship with God as a grown man, replacing the war shattered doubts of his youth. STEPHEN L. TURNER is a fifth generation Texan, sixth generation Arkansan and eighth generation American. He is a graduate of Texas Tech School of Medicine, and has worked as a pediatrician in rural Plainview, Texas since 1984. He is married with two married children. Injuries have forced his retirement from ranching and training horses. He is a member of Sons of the Confederacy, Hood’s Texas Brigade Association, the Texas Genealogical Society, and the Western Writers of America. He is also the author of OUT OF THE WILDERNESS, ON THE CAMINO REAL, UNDER TROUBLED SKIES, RIDE FOR THE LONE STAR, ON THE ROAD TO GLORY, and UP FROM THE ASHES, all from Sunstone Press.

The lifeless bodies of Texas Rangers lay scattered on the floor of Bryant’s Gap. One man, wounded and left for the buzzards, comes back to consciousness and vows to bring the killers to justice. Now known only as the Lone Ranger, this man, his steadfast horse, Silver, and trusted friend, Tonto, set out to bring justice to the men who ambushed him and his fellow rangers. With a ‘Hi-Yo Silver, Away-y-y-y,’ the Lone Ranger embodies classic American ideals of the champions of the Wild West. The Lone Ranger first found success as a 1933 radio show, then expanded into books, television, comics, and motion pictures. This iconic character has been portrayed George Seaton, Clayton Moore, and by Armie Hammer in the 2013 movie release The Lone Ranger (with Johnny Depp as Tonto).

In Gone to Texas, historian Randolph Campbell ranges from the first arrival of humans in the Panhandle some 10,000 years ago to the dawn of the twenty-first century, offering an interpretive account of the land, the successive waves of people who have gone to Texas, and the conflicts that have made Texas as much a metaphor as a place. Campbell presents the epic tales of Texas history in a new light, offering revisionist history in the best sense--broadening and deepening the traditional story, without ignoring the heroes of the past. The scope of the book is impressive. It ranges from the archeological record of early Native Americans to the rise of the oil industry and ultimately the modernization of Texas. Campbell provides swift-moving accounts of the Mexican revolution against Spain, the arrival of settlers from the United States, and the lasting Spanish legacy (from place names to cattle ranching to civil law). The author also paints a rich portrait of the Anglo-Texan revolution, with its larger-than-life leaders and epic battles, the fascinating decade of the Republic of Texas, and annexation by the United States. In his account of the Civil War and Reconstruction, he examines developments both in local politics and society and in the nation at large (from the debate over secession to the role of Texas troops in the Confederate army to the impact of postwar civil rights laws). Late nineteenth-century Texas is presented as part of both the Old West and the New South. The story continues with an analysis of the impact of the Populist and Progressive movements and then looks at the prosperity decade of the 1920s and the economic disaster of the Great Depression. Campbell's last chapters show how World War II brought economic recovery and touched off spectacular growth that, with only a few downturns, continues until today. Lucid, engaging, deftly written, Gone to Texas offers a fresh understanding of why Texas continues to be seen as a state unlike any other, a place that distills the essence of what it means to be an American.
