On the American frontier, every gun tells a story. From the greatest western writers of the 21st century, the story of the Winchester 1887. It’s a repeater. It’s a shotgun. A boy with a borrowed badge. An Indian lawman with a new kind of firearm. And an outlaw gang that wants these pilgrims dead.
With over 35 million books in print, William W. Johnstone is among of the bestselling western writers in the world. In November 2015, America’s most popular bestselling western writers present Winchester 1887, the second in a new series starring the historical and iconic Winchester guns.
Following February 2015’s release of Winchester 1886, every novel in this series follows the trail of a different gun, each with its own story to tell.

In Winchester 1887, young James Mann came from Texas to find his missing uncle in the lawless Indian Territory. Then the boy’s father came after him. Now they’ve earned the wrath of the vicious McCoy-Maxwell gang, who are about to pull off their most savage attack. But the Manns of Texas have a secret weapon: Deputy Marshal Jackson Sixpersons. While repeating rifles are spreading across the frontier, Sixpersons carries an oddity: a 12-gauge, lever-action Winchester shotgun.
