From the Publisher

William W. Johnstone's breathtaking Mountain Man series set the standard for Western adventure. Now a new saga begins as the adopted son of Smoke Jensen takes his place on the unforgiving and violent American frontier. . .

BORN TO BE BRAVE

Matt Cavanaugh was nine years old when a band of outlaws slaughtered his family. . .Now Matt is 18, honed by hardship, steeped in survival and carrying the last name of the man who raised him: Smoke Jensen. With Smoke's wisdom, his own courage and just enough money to start a life, Matt Jensen begins a relentless hunt for the outlaws, led by the deadly Winston Pugh, who murdered his family in cold blood. Pugh won't be hard to find; his scarred face gives him away. But Matt soon discovers there's a lot more to vengeance than hunting down a man—and that in a clash of guns and guile, true justice is waiting just beyond a town called Perdition. . .

The Republic Repeals Itself

WE ARE WITNESSING the power of a massive populist movement that has now upended the two most stable democracies in the world—and thrown both countries into a completely unknown future. In Britain, where the polls did not pick up the latent support for withdrawal from the European Union, a new prime minister is now navigating a new social contract with the indigenous middle and working classes forged by fear of immigration and globalization. In the U.S., the movement—built on anti-political politics, economic disruption, and anti-immigration fears—had something else, far more lethal, in its bag

The Hard Truths of Globalization

IT’S EASY TO FEEL that globalization—one of the most vital business trends of the past half-century—is in retreat.

Fortune’s Global 500 list, which spotlights the public companies with the most revenues on the planet, could be read as confirming an erosion in globalization’s success. The tota
