Christopher Reynolds has called rural North Carolina home since his birth in 1993. He graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor degree in Business Management from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. A lifelong fan of western films and literature, Reynolds cites Louis L’Amour as his favorite author. Blood on the Range is his debut novel.
Blood on the Range is a tale of greed with cattle ranches at its core. When a wealthy cattle baron who has connections all over town decides that what he has isn’t enough to satisfy him, he’ll stop at nothing to obtain what others have as well. As livestock disappears and tempers flare, bloodshed is a forgone conclusion. Backed by the power that comes along with his position, the baron throws his weight around and appears to be unstoppable. With their backs against the wall, the ranchers who have been the target of the baron’s barrage must find a way to turn the tide. Family ties and old friends thicken the plot as a war for supremacy and survival wages on.
When he finds himself waiting to hang for murder, Carson Calvert’s only chance for freedom is to exchange the life of an old friend for his own.
