Books by James L. Rickard

Grandpa Wore a Six-Gun - Book cover
This book is the beginning of the Charlie Hobbs story. Venture into the Old West as seen by Charlie in this coming of age Western and experience bordello life, train robberies, and living on the lam. Meet Ma and Pa, good guys, bad guys, fallen doves, and other characters of the Wild West during the life and times of Charlie Hobbs. I thought it is pretty evident this is a work of fiction, but people keep asking me about it.
