Higher Ground by McKendree Long

Writing any historical takes skill and research, but Higher Ground is written by a combat veteran so his insight into battles is uncanny. The battle known as Custer's Last Stand is so vivid in this book that you can almost hear the battle cries and smell the gun smoke. This book has a cast of characters that will keep you compelled to turn the page.

Genre: Historical Fiction, Action & Adventure

No Good Like It Is by McKendree R. Long III

"No Good Like It Is" is a winding tale of violence, tolerance, and changing racial acceptance. In it, two hard-bitten Confederate cavalrymen barely survive the Civil War, riding with the famed Eighth Texas Cavalry. They then must struggle home to the Texas Panhandle, while accumulating enough misfits and strays to populate a small village. This rowdy historical fiction is filled with rich characters, both real and should-have-been. A sequel, "What Goes Round," is in the works.

Rough Country (Anthology)

There was a time when America was younger--when the West was as rugged as the souls of the men and women who set out to tame her. The good and the bad, the brave and the weak, the comical and the pitiful--some lived and died without so much as a tombstone or a whisper on the wind to mark their passing, and others...well, they became legends. Rough Country is fifteen stories that speak of that odyssey towards sundown and the kind of people who went west of the Mississippi, to the frontier and beyond, seeking. Original Old West Stores from: Brett Cogburn, D.B. Jackson, Richard Prosch, Amy Hale Auker, Rod Miller, Eddie A. Owens, Nancy Hartney, Tommy Johnson, Michael R. Ritt, Delois McGrew, Johnny D. Boggs, Louella Turner, T.M. Eaton, and Dusty Richards

Broken Promises (La Frontera Publishing Presents The American West Book 3) Anthology

The West was built on a handshake and a promise. But sometimes those promises were broken, and the consequences could be fearful. Whether it was the nation’s broken promises to tribal leaders, or a vow to revenge a wounded heart, the price would have to be paid in blood and tears. La Frontera Publishing presents “Broken Promises,” its latest collection of thirteen fictional short stories and one novella about the Wild West from America’s newest Western writers, authors who may become tomorrow’s legends of Western literature.

About The Author: McKendree R. (Mike) Long III is a former soldier whose awards and decorations include the Parachutist's Badge, the Combat Infantryman's Badge, the Silver Star, and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry (Gold and Silver Stars).

Retiring in 1980, he served the next 29 years as a Financial Advisor with Merrill Lynch and began to work on his first novel during his last years there. NO GOOD LIKE IT IS was published through Createspace upon his second retirement at the end of 2009. The sequel (DOG SOLDIER MOON) was released by Goldminds Publishing in December 2011. A third piece (working title: HIGHER GROUND) will include the battle of the Little Bighorn.

Mike is active in SERTOMA, SCV, and Western Writers of America (WWA), and is a Life Member of the NRA and VFW; he's also an avid collector and shooter of guns of the Old West, much to his wife's dismay.

Married since 1960, Mike and Mary enjoy traveling the West, but split most of their time between Blythewood and Seabrook Island, SC. They have two married daughters, four grandchildren, and one granddaughter-in-law.
