Reviews: 

"If you love westerns or just good stories, don’t miss Billy Moore’s Professor Hayes.  Andrew Jackson Hayes is a scholar, teacher, gunfighter, and horse trainer who is short in stature and slight of build and drags his left leg.  But make no mistake: he is a tough guy who can handle the bad guys and bullies and protect his friends.  Among his friends are strong, unconventional women, including “soiled doves,” as well as a French gunfighter, a Swedish sheriff who invents things, a coal black stone mason who also plays the fiddle and cooks, and brave Irish settlers. Moore’s adventure does not lack humor; the professor’s lovely, tall, nineteen-year-old bride tells him on their wedding night that she is new at this, but “I think you need to take off your boots.” This western leaves readers longing for a sequel from this entertaining storyteller who recreates the American Southwest so authentically." - Susan Blue, Professor Emerita, English, Gulf Coast State College
