‘The Notorious Black Bart 1883’ Will Have You Reaching for Your Stetson Once More [BOOK BLAST]

The Notorious Black Bart 1883 Book BlastThere’s something about the Old West that has captivated our imaginations for years. Perhaps it’s that the men were rugged and wild, and so was the terrain. Maybe it’s that the vast expanse of country which opened up after the Civil War promised freedom and adventure. Or quite possibly, it’s because wordsmiths like Louis L’Amour, Zane Grey and Max Brand chronicled the lives of the gunslingers, lawmen, gamblers, pioneers and others in the pages of their novels so deftly that they made us all want to be cowboys at some point in our lives. (After all, haven’t we all imagined ourselves perching stetsons high atop our heads, pinning stars to our vests and practicing drawing Colt revolvers out of holsters riding low on our hips?) Now there’s a new novelist in town. Meet A. E. Wasserman. She will fuel your imagination once again as she brings the West back to vivid life in her new book, The Notorious Black Bart 1883.

Archway

Englishman Lord Langsford is leaving California after an adventurous visit, but finds more excitement in a Dime Novel that he shares with his two fellow travelers on the train bound to New York: This is the embellished but true tale of Black Bart and Special Agent James B. Hume of Wells Fargo & Company.

It’s California gold country and the notorious Black Bart robs his twenty-eighth Wells Fargo Stagecoach. The stage driver shoves down the heavy cash box then whips his team into a gallop away from the gunslinger. When the outlaw dismounts his horse to gather up his loot, a rattler slinks onto the road and bites him through his boot. He shoots off its head, but his horse bolts, leaving him snake bit and on foot. The gold from the local mines is heavy. He must carry the bounty out of the Sierra Mountains or die trying.

Special Agent James B. Hume of Wells Fargo & Company, a friend of Lord Langsford, has been after Black Bart for eight years. Now for the first time, Hume has some of the outlaw’s possessions. He has to use his wits, but the gunslinger has nearly a week’s head start. Can Hume catch the outlaw once and for all? Or will Black Bart escape to terrorize again? Find out in A.E. Wasserman’s The Notorious Black Bart 1883!
