Digger Cartwright’s award-winning western novel, The Maynwarings: A Game of Chance, mixes politics, scandal, gold, and the biggest cattle ranch in the Old West as the Maynwarings battle to keep what is theirs, preserve a way of life, and protect the future. The Maynwarings: A Game of Chance centers around the Maynwaring family–Barron, a United States Senator for the State of Nevada, his wife Eleanor and their children, Mary Catherine, Breckenridge, Houston, and Stokes. In addition to their massive ranch, The Greenbrier, they have business interests in timber, mining, hotels, mills, and banking.
Barron Maynwaring returns to the Greenbrier ranch only to be embroiled in a political smear, cattle rustling, the murder of their neighbor, and the lynching of their long-time friend. Clearly, the once peaceful place the Maynwarings call home has changed. The arrival of a suspicious businessman in Carson City leads to a dark and cunning plan, and as the Maynwarings venture forth, they soon find themselves forced into a sinister game of chance, which will ultimately determine the fate of The Greenbrier and the future of Carson City.
