When Texas cowboy, Jesse Pruitt, purchases land in Florida he quickly discovers ranching in Florida is uniquely different from ranching in Texas. When Jesse’s life intersects with Harriet Painter, a survivor of abuse at the hands of her uncle Buford, Malachai McQueen, the son of an El Paso working woman and others with names like Moccasin Bob and Pelo Berryhill, what results is a case of murder, stolen identity, a runaway girl in peril and a love story. Cracker Justice explores the true history of the Sara Sota Vigilance Committee, a group of prominent ranchers and business men who resorted to violent tactics to evict squatters and farmers from the open range. It is a novel of Florida’s outlaw history that blends historical fact with engaging fictional characters who revolve around the classic cowboy hero – Jesse Pruitt. Cracker Justice combines all the essential parts of a classic Cracker Western.
