James Fenimore Cooper - The Last of the Mohicans
It is 1757. Across north-eastern America the armies of Britain and France struggle for ascendancy. Their conflict, however, overlays older struggles between nations of native Americans for possession of the same lands and between the native peoples and white colonisers. Through these layers of conflict Cooper threads a thrilling narrative, in which Cora and Alice Munro, daughters of a British commander on the front line of the colonial war, attempt to join their father. Thwarted by Magua, the sinister 'Indian runner', they find help in the person of Hawkeye, the white woodsman, and his companions, the Mohican Chingachgook and Uncas, his son, the last of his tribe. Cooper's novel is full of vivid incident- pursuits through wild terrain, skirmishes, treachery and brutality- but reflects also on the interaction between the colonists and the native peoples. Through the character of Hawkeye, Cooper raises lasting questions about the practises of the American frontier and the eclipse of the indigenous cultures.
Max Brand - Ki lesz a hetedik?
- Joan, azonnal velem jössz! - Nem megyek! - Joan! A gyermek nem felelt. A szeme sárgán villogott. Kate csaknem összerogyottt. Dan Barry... valamikor ő is békésen élt. Vidám, kedves fiú volt addig a szörnyű napig, amikor egyszer a kocsmában leütötte őt Jim Silent, a banditavezér. Kate tisztán emlékezett rá, ahogy a földön feküdt véresen, s aztán a szemében is félelmetes sárga fény villant fel. És most Joan is! A gyermekhez szaladt, és a karjaiba kapta. Joan hirtelen élesen füttyentett. Az anya a gyermek szájára szorította a kezét, hogy elfojtsa a segélykérő füttyszót, de akkor már ott állt a barlang bejáratánál Black-Bart, a hatalmas farkaskutya. - Dan hazajött... - suttogta Kate.

Stephen King - Wolves of the Calla
Roland Deschain and his ka-tet are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World, the almost timeless landscape that seems to stretch from the wreckage of civility that defined Roland's youth to the crimson chaos that seems the future's only promise. Readers of Stephen King's epic series know Roland well, or as well as this enigmatic hero can be known. They also know the companions who have been drawn to his quest for the DarkTower: Eddie Dean and his wife, Susannah; Jake Chambers, the boy who has come twice through the doorway of death into Roland's world; and Oy, the Billy-Bumbler. In this long-awaited fifth novel in the saga, their path takes them to the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis, a tranquil valley community of farmers and ranchers on Mid-World's borderlands. Beyond the town, the rocky ground rises toward the hulking darkness of Thunderclap, the source of a terrible affliction that is slowly stealing the community's soul. One of the town's residents is Pere Callahan, a ruined priest who, like Susannah, Eddie, and Jake, passed through one of the portals that lead both into and out of Roland's world. As Father Callahan tells the ka-tet the astonishing story of what happened following his shamed departure from Maine in 1977, his connection to the Dark Tower becomes clear, as does the danger facing a single red rose in a vacant lot off Second Avenue in midtown Manhattan. For Calla Bryn Sturgis, danger gathers in the east like a storm cloud. The Wolves of Thunderclap and their unspeakable depredation are coming. To resist them is to risk all, but these are odds the gunslingers are used to, and they can give the Calla-folken both courage and cunning. Their guns, however, will not be enough.

Abigail Roux - According To Hoyle
By the close of 1882, the inhabitants of the American West had earned their reputation as untamed and dangerous. The line between heroes and villains is narrow and indistinct. The concept that a man may only kill if backed into a corner is antiquated. Lives are worth less than horses. Treasures are worth killing for. And the law is written in the blood of those who came before. The only men staving off total chaos are the few who take the letter of the law at its word and risk their lives to uphold it. But in the West, the rules aren't always played according to Hoyle. US Marshals Eli Flynn and William Henry Washington are escorting two prisoners to New Orleans for trial when they discover there’s more to the infamous shootist Dusty Rose and the enigmatic man known only as Cage than merely being outlaws. When forces beyond the marshals’ control converge on the paddlewheeler they have hired to take them downriver, they must choose between two dangers: playing by the rules at any cost or trusting the very men they are meant to bring to justice.

Míg fel nem tűnik egy magányos lovas, akit csak az vezet, hogy bosszút álljon a halottakért. Shannow sebesülten, töredékes emlékezettel száll szembe a gonosszal és az igazságtalansággal, az egyetlen módon, amit ismer – szemtől-szemben, füstölgő pisztolycsővel. De elég lesz ennyi ahhoz, hogy megállítsa a Diakónust és eszelős keresztes hadjáratát? Még ha Shannow sikerrel jár is, akkor is ott várnak rá a Pokolszülöttek sátáni hordái, és vérszomjas uruk, Sarento, a Vérkő néven ismert hatalomkő élő megtestesülése.

Larry McMurtry - Gyilkos hold - Fakó Keselyű
A mókának vége. Csakhogy, kicsit másképp, mint hőseink, a két rangerkapitány, Gus és Call, a legyőzhetetlen, de nem elpusztíthatatlan Púpos Bölény vagy fia, a félvér Fakó Keselyű remélték. A házasélet nyugalma, a méltóságteljes öregség békéje vagy a hősi halál dicsősége csupa olyan ígéret, melynek beváltásával a sors barátnak és ellenségnek, kapitánynak és közlegénynek, indiánnak, félvérnek, mexikóinak és fehérnek egyaránt adósa marad a préri ólomszürke ege alatt. Amiben viszont a Texas rongyos lovagjai ötödik részében sincs hiány: az izgalom és a kiszámíthatatlan fordulatok sora. A legfőbb kérdés pedig nem az, hogy ki kit győz le, hanem az, hogy vajon a győztes megőrzi-e tisztességét, a vesztes pedig megőrzi-e méltóságát?
Larry McMurtry - Gyilkos hold - Ahumado
Larry McMurtry sikeresen bizonyította, hogy a legjobb western regények kétségtelenül részei a szépirodalomnak.” Historic Traveler A legendás komancs főnök, Púpos Bölény pusztító hadjáratával párhuzamosan Scull kapitány vakmerő kalandja miatt is izgulhatunk. A félelmet nem ismerő rangerparancsnok Mexikóba megy ellopott lova után, a félelmetes Ahumado birodalmába. Az öldöklő mexikói nemcsak kínozza foglyait, de meztelenül kalitkába zárva tartja őket egy magas sziklafalról lelógatva, és így élvezi szenvedéseiket. Ez a sors jut a rettenthetetlen Scull kapitánynak is, aki mindössze abban reménykedhet, hogy Gus és Call, a két ifjú, de már egyáltalán nem tapasztalatlan ranger eljön érte, és kiszabadítja. "Hatalmas teljesítmény, amelyhez hasonló kevés található napjaink irodalmában." Library Journal

Cormac McCarthy - Blood Meridian
"The fulfilled renown of Moby-Dick and of As I Lay Dying is augmented by Blood Meridian, since Cormac McCarthy is the worthy disciple both of Melville and Faulkner," writes esteemed literary scholar Harold Bloom in his Introduction to the Modern Library edition. "I venture that no other living American novelist, not even Pynchon, has given us a book as strong and memorable." Cormac McCarthy's masterwork, Blood Meridian, chronicles the brutal world of the Texas-Mexico borderlands in the mid-nineteenth century. Its wounded hero, the teenage Kid, must confront the extraordinary violence of the Glanton gang, a murderous cadre on an official mission to scalp Indians and sell those scalps. Loosely based on fact, the novel represents a genius vision of the historical West, one so fiercely realized that since its initial publication in 1985 the canon of American literature has welcomed Blood Meridian to its shelf. "A classic American novel of regeneration through violence," declares Michael Herr. "McCarthy can only be compared to our greatest writers."
