Red Butte Showdown: Selected Unabridged Stories from May There Be a Road includes four unforgettable adventures - "Red Butte Showdown", "Friend of a Hero", "Wings Over Brazil", and "The Ghost Fighter" - all previously uncollected stories, now offered for the first time together. In the title story, the sudden arrival of a frightened, fatherless boy at Gunthorp's cabin turns into a struggle to keep a seemingly useless piece of land out of the hands of a crooked rancher and return it to its rightful heirs. "Friend of a Hero" is the story of a detective who is willing to believe a woman's unproven story about her brother's death in order to find the painful truth in the seamy underbelly of a small town. Ponga Jim Mayo has found trouble again in "Wings Over Brazil." When his ship, the Semiramis, is stolen, he stumbles onto the plot for a Nazi takeover of Brazil. In "The Ghost Fighter", a look-alike takes the champ's place in the ring, but when the scam is exposed, it's every man for himself, and the winner gets the world heavyweight title! Ranging from the coasts of Brazil to the very heartland of America, Red Butte Showdown: Selected Unabridged Stories from May There Be a Road exhibits the unbridled passion and the sheer genius of a true master working at the peak of his creative power. 1.

The author of the number-one New York Times best seller The Revenant - the basis for the award-winning motion picture starring Leonardo DiCaprio - tells the remarkable story of the worst hard-rock mining disaster in American history. The worst hard-rock mining disaster in American history began a half hour before midnight on June 8, 1917, when fire broke out in the North Butte Mining Company's Granite Mountain shaft. Sparked more than 2,000 feet below ground, the fire spewed flames, smoke, and poisonous gas through a labyrinth of underground tunnels. Within an hour more than 400 men would be locked in a battle to survive. Within three days 164 of them would be dead. Fire and Brimstone recounts the remarkable stories of both the men below ground and their families above, focusing on two groups of miners who made the incredible decision to entomb themselves to escape the gas. While the disaster is compelling in its own right, Fire and Brimstone also tells a far broader story striking in its contemporary relevance. Butte, Montana, on the eve of the North Butte disaster, was a volatile jumble of antiwar protest, an abusive corporate master, seething labor unrest, divisive ethnic tension, and radicalism both left and right. It was a powder keg lacking only a spark, and the mine fire would ignite strikes, murder, ethnic and political witch hunts, occupation by federal troops, and ultimately a battle over presidential power. 1.
