Death at Red Creek is a short novel taking place in the mid 1870’s. It is a work of fiction but historically correct based on those times and weapons available to them. This western is a rock and roll and sometimes violent where even a sweet young lady from back east can kick some butt. Someone is out to kill her for reasons no one can figure out. Good wins out over Evil….the bad guy gets his just rewards and lost love is found.
Seth was searching for his wife who was taken by renegade Comanche over two years earlier. In his searching he found some of the offenders who told him everything they knew about his wife then paid the price of taking a woman from her husband. In the west life is harsh and when a man kidnaps a woman justice is swift and final.
Seth looked toward the horses, and saw a big dark object rushing toward them. His blood ran cold as he recognized the maker of the big tracks he saw two days ago. The grizzly. His skin started to tingle as he sprinted to the horses. From the hip he fired a single shot from the rifle; the big bear instantly spun around two or three times and stopped. He turned, and at thirty yards came for Seth at a dead run. His first instinct was to run, but he knew he would not make it. A grizzly could outrun a horse for a short distance. No time to waste, he dropped the rifle, drew both pistols and started firing, backing up as he did so to try and buy some time. The price was too high. He put four slugs into the dark brown mass as it closed on him, then jumped to the left at the last second. The grizzly swiped out with a paw, ripping Seth's right leg open just above the knee. The blow knocked him to the ground, but he rolled into the trees and jumped to his feet. He knew he had been hurt but no time to look.
