)-- Author W.R. Benton has just released the ebook version of his second Western fiction title, "James McKay, U.S. Army Scout." This book takes place just after the Civil War and features James McKay, a former Confederate officer now turned U.S. Army Scout.
The tale involves gunrunners selling surplus Civil War repeating rifles to the marauding Sioux. By accident, McKay stumbles onto a more dangerous plot involving stolen Gatling guns and renegade tribes. The thrilling search is on for a slippery gunrunner by the name of Wild Bill. McKay is hot on his trail, joining forces with Ezekiel, an old but ornery mountain man with a score to settle. Saddle up, W.R. Benton gives us another fast-paced, and action-packed tale of the old west.
