Zane Grey - Ragyogó ​csillagok
A ​vadnyugat híres párductarka lova tovább száguld a végtelen prérin és a fenyvesekkel borított hegyek között. Újabb romantikus történettel nyergében, amely a klasszikus westernirodalom leghíresebb és legolvasottabb írójának tollából született. A helyszín New Mexikó vad sziklái és völgyei, ahol mexikóiak, marhapásztorok és banditák kerülnek egymással összetűzésbe. Féktelen gyűlöletek és életreszóló barátságok között bonyolódik a történet. Itt találja meg a boldogságát egy nagyvárosi élethez szokott lány úgy, hogy szívét nemcsak szerelmese, hanem a fenséges természet is rabul ejti... de nemcsak őt, hanem az olvasót is, aki egy rövid időre akaratlanul magába szívja a régi vadnyugat légkörét.

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.

Frank O'Rourke - Violent ​Country
For ​twenty years his neighbors had known him as Don Gus, a peaceable gringo storekeeper who didn't talk about his past. But when the lovely Porfira came of age, and Arroyo Hondo was ripped apart by anger and gunshots, Don Gus became Don Stedman once again. Once more, he was force to strap on the hated Colts to save -or destroy- the valley he loved...

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.

Barsi Ödön - Indiánok ​a Dunán
"A ​törzs tagjai közfelkiáltással Bélát választották meg törzsfőnöknek. Béla elérzékenyülten tette fejére a díszes tollbokrétát, aztán méltóságteljesen letelepedett az egyik láda tetejére. – Köszönöm a bizalmatokat, rézbőrű testvéreim… most pedig engedjétek meg, hogy néhány szóval ismertessem a tábori életet, ami ránk vár: ébresztő reggel hét órakor, utána mosdás, majd reggeli, bevásárlás és főzés, aztán ebéd. Ebéd után mindenki kedvére pihenhet, fürödhet, halászhat és vadászhat, a vacsora után tábortűz a totemoszlopnál és csöndes tervezgetés… Valahogy így képzelem az indián-életet. Vállaljátok mindazt, amit elmondtam? – Vállaljuk! – mondták a fiúk kórusban. – Köszönöm, rézbőrű testvéreim – nézett körül a főnök lelkes pillantással. – Akkor közölhetem azt is, hogy egy nagylelkű pártfogót találtam, aki hajlandó minket élelmezni. Egyébként a szigetet is ő bocsátotta a rendelkezésünkre…"

John Williams - Butcher's ​Crossing
A ​Stoner és az Augustus szerzőjétől Amerika, 1873 Will Andrews nem a könyvek barátja. Vadságra, szabadságra, reményre, lendületre vágyik. Otthagyja a Harvardot, és nekivág a vadnyugatnak, hogy új életet kezdjen. Butcher’s Crossingban megismerkedik egy vadásszal, aki mesél neki a legendás bölénycsordáról, mely egy eldugott magaslati völgyben rejtőzik, és csak bátor, az őrültségig vakmerő férfiak lelhetnek rá. Will úgy dönt, ő is e férfiak egyike lesz, de a coloradói hegyekbe vezető hosszú út, az öldöklés, a közelítő tél, a sorozatos balszerencsék testben és lélekben egyaránt próbára teszik.

Joe Abercrombie - Vérvörös ​vidék
Felgyújtották ​az otthonát. Elrabolták a testvéreit. De bosszú nem maradhat el. Déli Szende azt tervezte, hogy mosolyogva hagyja maga mögött véres múltját, most mégis kénytelen a régi módszerekhez nyúlni, hogy visszaszerezze a testvéreit. Két ökör és bátortalan mostohaapja, Bárány társaságában veszi üldözőbe a gyerekrablókat. A kietlen pusztaságon át vezető útjuk során ellenségeskedésből, párbajokból és mészárlásból is kijut, mire megérkeznek az aranylázban égő határvidékre, és a feltérképezetlen hegyek között megküzdenek a dzsinnekkel. És ami még rosszabb, kénytelenek szövetséget kötni Nicomo Coscával, a hírhedt zsoldosvezérrel és mihaszna jogászával, Templomossal, két olyan emberrel, akiben soha nem lenne szabad megbízniuk… "Ez nem apáink fantasyja! Abercrombie valami nagyon merésszel próbálkozott... És a tücsök rúgja meg, sikerül neki! A _Vérvörös vidék_ se nem vadnyugati történet, se nem egyszerű fantasy, hanem valami új, friss és izgalmas!" - David Barnett, The Independent

David Gemmell - Vérkő
Húsz ​év telt el azóta, hogy Jon Shannow, a legendás Jeruzsálemi résnyire nyitotta az idő kapuját, és a világába hozta a rejtélyes Diakónust és híveit.

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.

Zane Grey - Az ​elveszett folyó
"Ide ​Ben Elveszett Folyónak nevezte el ezt a kanyargó folyamot, mert olyan volt, mint az ő élete. Ben jó házból való volt és 16 éves koráig iskolába járt, de ekkor engedett szenvedélyének, mely a szabad élet és a vadló vadászat felé vonzotta és így került az "Elveszett folyó"-hoz, amely szintén elég jól indult a forrásánál, a szépen lekerített kopasz, zsályás helyek alatt északnyugati Kaliforniában és derekasan folyt néhány mérföldig, de akkor hirtelen "elveszett folyó" lett. Így hívták az indiánok is..."

Carol Lynne - Physical ​Therapy / Out of the Shadow

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

Everything inside of her is calling out to find him, to follow, to bring him home.

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."
