A USA TODAY and Amazon bestseller, author Gordon L. Rottman has finally given fans of his adult Westerns THE HARDEST RIDE and RIDE HARDER the story of Marta, the heroic mute heroine of his classic Western tales. He has also, and in a way, given Marta her own voice, in this stand-alone recounting of the harrowing events of The Hardest Ride seen through her eyes.
The Texas-Mexico border, the winter of 1886—The Great Die Up. A raw rift separates Mexicans and Anglos. Marta, a sixteen-year-old mute Mexican girl, and loner cowpoke fight man and nature to reunite.
