Rebel Spurs is a novel that begins in the aftermath of the Civil War. In 1866, only men uprooted by war had reason to ride into Tubacca, Arizona -- a nondescript town as shattered and anonymous as the veterans drifting through it. So when Drew Rennie, newly discharged from Forrest's Confederate scouts, arrivesleading everything he owned behind him -- his thoroughbred stud Shiloh, a mare about to foal, and a mule -- he knows his business will not be questioned. To anyone in Tubacca there could be only one extraordinary thing about Drew, and that he could not reveal: his name, Rennie.
Drew had come west from Kentucky to find a father he had thought dead until the year before. Kinship with a man like Hunt Rennie, however -- the legendary Don Cazar, owner of a matchless range and prize stallions -- was not a claim to be made quickly or lightly. Posing as Drew Kirby the young veteran contrived to get himself and his friend Anse hired as corral hands at Rennie's Range, but he was hardly prepared for the suspicion and danger which stood between him and his father.
