Don M. Russell explores American Southwest in novel

Don M. Russell returns to the publishing scene with the release of "Arizona Star" (published by Trafford Publishing in July 2017), a Western novel charting the adventures of one man who takes up the role of a liberator of a crime-ridden town.

Circa 1889, a young freight and stagecoach company was being brutalized by outlaws, in and around Tucson, Arizona, territory. Matt Cantlin, general manager of the company, called on his brother to track down outlaw leaders and remedy the chaos. Jake meets the challenges through various altercations, his life on the line and the future of the town dependent on the six-gun at his side.

"'Arizona Star' is a fast-moving, continuous story that creates and involves charismatic characters and incorporates perpetual action which interweaves throughout the chapters of the book," Russell shares.

"I want readers to relate to the personal involvement of the story's characters, the simple, but harshness of the times in the late 1800s in the great Southwest."
