Hell On Wheels--'Mean Pete' Style!
This one brings together the entire cast of main characters from the fictional frontier town of Clantick, Montana Territory, and puts them on a stage with Ben Stillman and a Judge who some crazy ex-Confederates are gunning for.
By the way, the town of Clantick is/was really the town of Havre up on Montana's Hi-Line--the region set along the Milk River and the Canadian border. This is where my ex-wife and I spent five good years living in an old hired-hand's shack on a working cattle ranch in the foothills of the Bear Paw Mountains. In the books, those mountains became the "Two-Bears." We were teaching English on the Rocky Boy Indian Reservation at the time, which I think was and probably still is the smallest and most remote Indian reservation west of the Mississippi.
I loved that area. My dog Old Shep and I hiked nearly every peak and coulee of that picturesque little "island" range. Skiied a good bit of it, too. I used that area in all the Stillman books and hope to continue using it again when I start the next Stillman original later this winter.
Here's Old Shep when he was young.
Here are the "Two-Bears", aka the Bear Paws:
