Coyote Cortés and the Silverman's Daughter

I have a fun, action-adventure story in mind for our western themed, Yarns 2. I'm still thinking about the overall feel with some faint ideas on art direction, so more to come. For now, here's the summary:

Silver tycoon, Thurston Goodchild and his beautiful, Harvard educated daughter Eloise make their way to San Francisco to oversee a new business venture. But, their trip hits a major road bump as the notorious Buckshot Bronson and his gang board their train and kidnap Eloise for ransom. Helpless, Thurston has no choice but to concede to Buckshot’s demands.

Thurston stops at the next town to obtain the ransom and proceed to the drop off point that Buckshot articulated, when a mysterious man who overheard his predicament offers another view point. Bounty hunter and local eccentric, Coyote Cortés knows that Buckshot’s not to be trusted and offers his services to get Eloise back. It takes some convincing, but when Coyote reveals Buckshot’s hostage survival history, Thurston decides to hire Coyote on. With the help of his trusty steed, Poncho and his spirit guide, Thistle, (whom Coyote can be often heard talking to, but never seen by anybody else,) Coyote set’s off in search of Buckshot’s gang.


  1. Sounds intriguing! Look forward to seeing how it develops.

  2. I like the spirit guide already!
