Bounty Hunter Nate Landry Series!

Bounty Hunter Nate Landry: Major Issues by Mark L. Redmond.

Book 1: Bounty Hunter Nate Landry.

The stereotypical bounty hunter in tales of the old West is an unprincipled, dirty, back-shooter, who is only motivated by the reward money he collects. Nate Landry and his best friend Wolf are a different breed of bounty hunter. They witnessed too much killing during the Civil War; consequently, they try to subdue the outlaws they’re after by using their brains instead of their bullets. But when Anna Thomas asks Nate to rescue her kidnapped son and see that the kidnappers are punished, he and Wolf find themselves chasing an enemy from their past. This man is so evil that killing him may be their only option–if he doesn’t kill them first. If you like adventure, humor, and the old West, saddle up and get ready to ride!

5 Stars: The Language Of A Six-Shooter!

Author Mark L. Redmond is a western action-adventure writer, who takes his readers back to the old wild west in 1877, where campfire coffee is strong and everyone knows the language of a six-shooter.

Chapter One of Bounty Hunter Nate Landry: Major Issues opens in Florence, Arizona, when Bounty Hunter Nate Landry returns home to find Anna Thomas waiting in his cabin with her pistol aimed straight at him. Anna is a mother on a mission to recover her kidnapped son Daniel.

The adventure unfolds as Nate and his trusted companion Wolf, accompanied by Anna, begin their search for Daniel Thomas.

Here is a quote from Chapter Six, as Nate, Wolf, and Anna go in search of bad man Major Campbell.

…We rode in silence for nearly an hour, letting the horses run awhile in the coolness of the morning. I was praying and watching. One of the things that made Campbell so dangerous was the fact that he was unpredictable. He had often succeeded in defeating the rebs by making moves that no other officer would have considered. He had never cared about sacrificing the lives of his men. Most of the time, the insanity of his tactics had protected his soldiers. He had favored the element of surprise, and he had known how to make it work in his favor. I reckoned Campbell hadn’t changed.

…I considered the matter of what to tell Anna about Campbell and how we had met David. We had no idea of what she already knew about this devil who had murdered her husband and stolen her son. And then she told us. “We named him after you,” Anna said.

…I looked at her, but she stared straight ahead. “Daniel Nathan Thomas,” she said. “David wanted to name our son after you. He said you and Wolf had saved his life. He was wounded and came home a year before the war ended.

…He told me about what happened to the other men who were captured with him. He always believed that God had spared him so that he could take care of me—”

…Anna began to cry softly.

… “I’d like to kill Campbell very slowly,” Wolf said.

… “I reckon he’d do the same to us if he got the chance,” I said.

… “If and when he finds out who we are,” Wolf said, “he’ll come after us. We have the edge right now because we know who he is. All he knows about us is that we’re two riders escorting Mrs. Thomas.”

If you need a change of pace, miss the old, wholesome western stories, and appreciate mid-western Christian values, Bounty Hunter Nate Landry: Major Issues should be your next read. Author Mark L. Redmond has two western books for “grownups” and six westerns in his Adventures of Arty Anderson series, geared for middle grade readers.

Editorial Review (Book Marketing Global Network).

Review by Amazon Customer: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Fun easy reading. Reviewed in the United States on September 13, 2021.This book was funny, gave a good feel for what life was like for the men living on the trail, easy to read for a quiet afternoon. Good for adults and older teens. Can’t wait to share it with family and friends and to read the next book in the series. I would highly recommend that everyone read it.

Review by Jeff Benham: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Brothers from another mother. Reviewed in the United States on November 5, 2021. Verified Purchase. Nate and Wolf grew up together, went to war together and now are bounty hunters together. This time is a bit difference. A woman comes to them because her husband was murdered and son kidnapped. Nate’s name was the last thing her husband muttered before he died. It turns out he was in the army with them and the kidnapper was their commanding officer. Love the banter and comradery between these two.

Bounty Hunter Nate Landry: Family Fury by Mark L. Redmond.

Book 2: Bounty Hunter Nate Landry.

Nate and Wolf didn’t have much trouble capturing Luke Womack and his two sidekicks. They turned the outlaws over to the town marshal at Wickenburg; and, since the town didn’t have a jail yet, he chained the trio to the jail tree. With their trap baited and set, all Nate and Wolf have to do is sit back and wait to capture Luke’s four brothers, all hardened criminals, when they come to rescue him.

The problem is, Nate and Wolf have no idea who will come when, or how many of the Womack brothers will show up at the same time. They do know Luke’s brothers will be coming angry and ready to kill. They also know if they’re going to survive the ordeal, they’d better be ready for whatever trouble the Womacks bring. It’s more than likely that someone’s going to die.

5 Stars: Angry Hornets or Five Womacks?

Author Mark L. Redmond uses his great sense of humor to open book two in his ‘Bounty Hunter Nate Landry’ series.

This is Wild West storytelling at its best, with high-action drama that will draw you back into 1877, where the Arizona Territory comes to life with three bank robberies. four stagecoach robberies, and a murder.

In ‘Bounty Hunter Nate Landry: Family Fury (Book Two); Nate and Wolf (his trusted companion) study and discuss a reward poster over coffee, after eating a hearty breakfast. The two men ponder the reward money offered for Luke Womack and his sidekicks. What they need is a plan.

Let me bring you into the story at Chapter 7:

…One of the things Wolf and I had learned while we were soldiers was the value of surprising the enemy. Often, we had defeated forces that were superior to ours in both number and skill because we had caught them off guard. Catching the Womacks off guard wouldn’t guarantee that Wolf and I could beat them, but we reckoned it would give us an edge.

…We were leaning against the hitching rail in front of the mercantile, enjoying the warmth of the mid-morning sun and smoking cigars. We were also making plans.

… “The Womacks will expect us to be waiting for them here in town,” I said.

… “Because they don’t know us?” Wolf asked.

… “Exactly,” I said.

… “They’ll also be looking for two men,” Wolf said. He tapped the ash from the end of his cigar. “So, we’re going to split up?”

… “And watch the trail from both sides of town,” I said. I exhaled smoke, smiled, and touched the brim of my hat as two ladies crossed from the other side of the street to enter the mercantile.

… “We’ll be close enough that whoever sees a Womack first should be able to signal the other,” Wolf said. He took a long draw on his cigar, leaned his head back, and blew the smoke into the air. “With one of us in sight and the other hidden, I reckon we’ll still have an edge.”

Putting the plan into action, they pack their supplies and saddle their horses with confidence. The plan sounds easy enough, but the adventure has just begun. This story takes place where the west is wild, outlaws terrorize small towns, and the brave bounty men ride in pursuit of justice.

The ‘Bounty Hunter Nate Landry’ series is comprised of stand-alone books, geared for YA and Adults. Author Mark L. Redmond has also produced a western adventure series for middle school readers, titled ‘The Adventures Of Arty Anderson’. Mark taught high school English for 28 years in South Bend, Indiana. He is a member of Western Writers of America, Western Fictioneers, SCBWI, ACFW, and the Single Action Shooting Society. He has been studying the West through reading and travel for most of his life (and he’s an old timer, born in 1953). Mark and his wife Susie live in Arizona, where Mark has turned his attention full-time to writing more old western tales. I am looking forward to book three in the ‘Bounty Hunter Nate Laundry’ series.

Review by Jim Walterhouse: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Enjoyable read! Reviewed in the United States on March 7, 2023. Verified Purchase. It was nice to read something that does no have sex scenes or cursing in it. I’m looking forward to the next one!

Review by Bob C: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. A family round up. Reviewed in the United States on November 6, 2021. Verified Purchase. Landry and Wolf aim to capture a thief and murderer. It turns out, as bad as the outlaw is, he may be the best of his four other brothers. Nate and Wolf decide to use him as bait to capture his brothers. Landry and Wolf are bounty hunters because the law is still sparse in the Arizona territory, and they’ve the experience and the sense of responsibility to do what they can to help capture dangerous outlaws. If you like Westerns, you’ll like the Nate Landry series. If you don’t like Westerns, you might after giving these books a try.

Reviewed in the United States on November 5, 2021.In the second book in the series Nate and Wolf track down ruthless outlaw Luke Womack. The problem is, he has brothers as mean as he is. Capturing them too, will be a pretty good trick. I sure hope there are more of these planned.

Bounty Hunter Nate Landry: Dust Devil by Mark L. Redmond.

Book 3: Bounty Hunter Nate Landry.

Book three in the series finds Nate and Wolf pursuing a gang of outlaws who helped themselves to $20,000 from the bank in Florence, Arizona Territory, and then disappeared.

The chase leads them from Florence to Tucson, then to Goose Flats. Each time Nate and Wolf get close, the outlaws disappear like a dust devil. Although they’re facing one of the most challenging adversaries they’ve encountered so far, neither of the bounty hunters will even consider giving up. Adventure abounds as the reader rides into the old West.

Stand-Alone Western (Below) For Adult Readers!

Five For The Trail by Mark L. Redmond.

For nearly twenty years, Mark L. Redmond had been telling stories about the old West to young readers. Finally, he’s turning his attention to “big kids” Here’s a collection of some of his best stories, including three that were unpublished until now. Redmond’s stories are not typical tales of shootouts and quick draws. In his unique way, he has created some delightful characters who choose to outsmart their opponents instead of out-shooting them.

Redmond is the author of the six-book middle grade series, The Adventures of Arty Anderson (Sword of the Lord Publishers, Murfreesboro, Tennessee). His story “The Spittoon” was a finalist in the 2010 Moonlight Mesa competition; “The Switch” appeared in a storyteller’s edition of Grit magazine; and “The Reward” was published in Elbow Creek. Mark and his wife Susie are workcampers. They live in a motor home and work in camp resort parks from Indiana to Arizona. Together they have six children and nine grandchildren.

Review by Bob C: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. A quick but satisfying read. Reviewed in the United States on November 6, 2021. Verified Purchase. The old west comes alive through the eyes of six different men, each with a story to tell in this collection. A quick but satisfying read.

I have already read the whole series to my older son who is 10, but now we are reading them again to my younger son who is seven. Last night my 13-year-old daughter was in her room, and I had no idea she was listening.

Westerns For Young Readers!

The Box M Gang by Mark Redmond.

Children’s 1800s US Historical Fiction.

The year is 1875. The Arizona Territory is a wild, sparsely settled place. The Martin family’s Box M Ranch is ten miles from their nearest neighbor and twenty miles from Tucson. Ma has been gone for two years, and Pa hasn’t been the same since she passed. Something inside him broke when he lost her. Fifteen-year-old Ruth, fourteen-year-old Thad, twelve-year-old Sarah, ten-year-old Bart, and eight-year-old Billy have been doing most of the work to keep the Box M running. Consequently, when Pa passes away, the Martin siblings face little change in their daily routine as far as their chores go.

They do, however, face an ominous threat. Ruth, Thad, and Sarah know they can continue to run the Box M without Pa. They also know if folks discover Pa has passed away, the local lawman will load the Martin siblings into a buckboard and haul them off to the orphanage near Tucson. Ruth is confident she, Thad, and Sarah can protect their secret from the occasional travelers who visit the Box M, but she’s concerned about Bart and Billy. They need to practice their conversations with each other to prepare for talking with strangers. They need to pray for God’s help as they tackle a nearly impossible task. They need to work together. They need to become the Box M Gang.

During the next few months, visitors to the Box M include the sheriff, a bounty hunter, cattle rustlers, and a family with five small children. Some of the visitors stay long enough to rest and water their livestock. Some spend the night and move on the next day. Others overstay their welcome. All of them pose a threat to the Martins.

Can they keep their secret and remain on the Box M? Saddle up, and let’s find out!

Review by G: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Fantastic read! Reviewed in the United States on June 16, 2022. Verified Purchase. In The Box M Gang, newly orphaned Ruth Martin and her brother Thad, along with their younger siblings, tackle the challenges of running their ranch themselves rather than hazarding their future to the local orphanage. They must work together, be brave, and keep their secret quiet! Author Mark Redmond delights his audience once again with his knowledge of the old west, strong characters (both male and female!), charming storytelling, and clever dialog. His writing will enchant young readers and also entertain any older readers invited along on this adventure. All five stars are shining over this great read.

Reviews by Kathryn: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Wholesome and entertaining for any age. Reviewed in the United States on August 6, 2022. Just seeing Mark L. Redmond’s name lets me know I’m in for some refreshing good reading and another book I can gift or recommend. “The Box M Gang” didn’t let me down. As usual, it’s a great family read-together, youngsters read-alone, and no upper-age limit on enjoying. Written in the manner so many of us grew up with, the story has adventure and a moral without sounding teachy or preachy. Appreciate Redmond’s not lowering his standards as so many writers have done, thinking it necessary to reach today’s youth. We who write have the responsibility to keep those standards high.

Review by MomTimes4: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Another fun book from Mark Redmond. Reviewed in the United States on June 12, 2022. I really enjoy getting Mark Redmond’s books for our kids….they are clean and well-written, without annoying proofing mistakes. I can trust them to my kids without previewing them and know there will be nothing objectionable in them. But we have also enjoyed reading his books WITH our kids over the years. They are even great for grandparents to read with their grands. His Arty Anderson was a favorite series for my dad and the grandkids to enjoy and discuss together.

In this new Box M Gang book, we are introduced to an entirely new cast of characters, some loveable, some that I’m still not sure about, and a few that absolutely made my blood pressure rise in frustration.

Redmond has the knack of character development! The story resolved well, but leaves you ready and waiting for the next in the series. We’ll be waiting for it…. 🙂

I read the first book in The Box M Gang series to my 10-year-old son and he would beg me to keep reading each night. We both enjoyed the humor and suspense. As a mom, I loved the family/ godly values presented and the way the siblings work together as a team. The chapter sizes were the perfect length for reading before bed and kept us excited for the next night we could read again. We can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out. In the meantime, we are starting the Arty Anderson series again. 😊 I highly recommend everything Mark Redmond writes. We’ve never been disappointed.

Review by Phil Truman. 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Growing Up Fast on the Arizona Frontier. Reviewed in the United States on June 15, 2022. Mark Redmond’s initial setup of his new western series about 5 orphaned siblings in the Arizona frontier, is a compelling read for teens. Packed with drama and captivating characters, the story weaves through the trials of fifteen-year-old Ruth and her brother Thad as they struggle to keep their young family together after their father’s death. On their small ranch, they bravely battle through threats from rustlers, squatters, outlaws, and the local sheriff. It is a gripping read striped with faith-based undertones. I highly recommend this opening novel in what promises to be a strength-of-character series. Phil Truman, author of Dire Wolf of the Quapaw and other Western novels.

Review by Amy: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Perfect book for readers! Reviewed in the United States on June 17, 2022. In a world full of books for kids that are shallow, full of terrible grammar, and iffy on subject matter this book is a welcome breath of fresh air. The author tells a captivating story while exemplifying great writing, good morals, and fantastic values. If your kid is going to read a good book this is worth their time. I, as an adult, thoroughly enjoyed it too as a quick read. You won’t regret spending time reading this book or any of the others by this author.

Review by Kindle Customer: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Not an author but an artist. Reviewed in the United States on June 15, 2022. As per the title, I consider Mark Redmond an artist. He vividly paints you a picture of the old west. Mark’s words jump from the page, making you feel you are not only a reader but are part of the story as it unfolds. I have read his other books and already knew this one was a must read. Isn’t it just so great when you find one of those books that completely drags you in, makes you fall in love with the characters, and demands that you sit on the edge of your seat.

Review by Mac Rollins: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Terrific Western Story for Young Readers! Reviewed in the United States on June 13, 2022. Author Mark L. Redmond has done it again. The Box M Gang is back with another Western Adventure. It is great to see a book, that any parent, would feel good about giving to their child. Full of action to draw you into the story with likable, believable main characters. No, you won’t find zombies or aliens. There’s nothing that will embarrass you or your young reader. The Box M Gang is a great way to hook a child on clean, adventure books with a sprinkling of Old West History & Lore.
