From our Purveyor of Books:
Author Jim Christina takes us on a ride into familiar territory, yet changes things up with new places and characters. If you've been following the Hunter Tales, this new Western adventure has Hunter passing on his trade to a perfect, willing student from Waco, Texas...Jeff Stryker. As is Christina's style, the language is salty, the action hot and fast, the characters memorable, and the scenic West it's perfect setting. This is the fourth book from Jim Christina's pen, and we hope, more will follow!
From the Author's Foreword:
While writing the Hunter novel, The Rights of Men, an itch started in me to change up a little. Slowly a realization hit me that the perfect character for his own story was that of young Jeff Styker of the Circle-J ranch and a staunch supporter of both the Hunter and Jolly Goodman.
From Waco, Texas came two young hands Jeff Stryker and Bobby Malloy. In a horrible twist of fate the jovial and always upbeat Bobby is killed when marauders attach the South Pond on the Circle-J.
The Hunter, for the first time, is feeling his mortality and wants to pass o his trade, teach his craft...and Stryker is a perfect student. Willing to learn, a quick study and eventually, at an early age, he too becomes a hunter of men.
The locations are the same southeastern Arizona Territory as the Hunter novels and some of the characters are the same but the story is decidedly different. Stryker learns that whereas he has learned his trade there is always something else he can learn. As his friend, Bobby Malloy, once told him, "If'n you cain't learn somethin everyday then you're brain's doin something wrong." And so Jeff Stryker continues his education in the mountains and deserts of the Arizona Territory.
In this story he is forced to take up the hunt on his own after the Hunter is seriously injured by a fall in the mountains. The hunt for el Fantasma (the Ghost) leads him into Mexico hunting the worst killer in Arizona history. He is thrust into a scenerio he never dreamed he would have to be a part of, yet the hunt is too magnetic for him to break it off.
But Stryker has a secret, one that he has never shared with anyone but his friend Bobby Malloy. It is this secret that makes Jeff Stryker unique and deadly.
I hope you enjoy the story of Jeff Stryker as much as you enjoyed the Hunter stories and as much as I did while writing it because it's not so much the story of a young man as it is the story of a young man learning his potential and coming of age in hard times and in a hard way.

From the Publisher:
When Historic Cookery first appeared in 1931 it may have been the earliest cookbook of New Mexican foods to be published, with heirloom recipes from the author's own family and others collected from villagers in northern New Mexico. Fabiola Cabeza de Baca Gilbert's cookbook has been credited with the popularization of cooking with chile that led directly to America's love of native New Mexican foods.
In traditional recipes there were no set rules for the preparation of food. The cook was expected to learn the recipes from her relatives. One of the great contributions of Historic Cookery is that for the first time the non-native cook was given exact amounts and measures for the preparation of New Mexican food.
The author gives complete recipes for chile sauces, corn dishes, meats, cheese, eggs, and vegetables as well as salads, soups, breads, desserts, and beverages.
Fabiola Cabeza de Baca Gilbert was born near Las Vegas, New Mexico in 1894. She was a noted educatior, writer, and home economist.
