Not again. It’s taken Andy Maxwell two years—1908-1910—to recover from the vendetta that nearly killed his mother, burned their Sierra Nevada ranch house, and exhumed some family secrets—including that his father was black.
At last Andy thinks he can return to the University of California to finish his PhD. Not so.
First, the PhD. program doesn’t want a miscegenated mongrel like him. Eminent San Francisco journalist, Ambrose Bierce agrees to help with that problem, but Michael Yellow Squirrel, who started all the trouble, is back and still wants eliminate every Maxwell on earth. No time for school now.
Oh, and there’s the election. Gubernatorial candidate Hiram Johnson wants Andy to run for the legislature to help foil the railroad barons.
Last, but far from least, there are the women—the debutant beauty and the Arapaho princess.
Readers looking for adventure, suspense, and romance (and which readers aren’t?) will find their search is over in The Second Vendetta.

Carl Brush has been writing since he could write, which is quite a long time now. He grew up and lives in Northern California, close to the roots of the people and action of his historical novels. The Maxwell Vendetta, The Second Vendetta, and the soon-to-be released Swindle in Sawtooth Valley which comprise a trilogy of the saga of the Maxwell family of Sawtooth Valley, high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. Bonita and its sequel, You Can’t Keep Her, are a coming-of-age story of a young girl before and after the gold rush. Finally, there’s The Yellow Rose, co-authored with the late Bob Stewart and set during the 1836 revolution that gave birth to the Republic of Texas.
