Summary
"Bandits, beasts, beauties, rustlers, ranchers, and more ride the trails in Elmer Kelton's superb stories of the West, each an example of the strength and power of Western spirit. They are marvelous characters--all, from a rodeo clown who seeks redemption via romance to an outlaw who comes to the aid of ranchers with no other recourse to justice. Powerful Western women feature as importantly as the menfolk here, including a cattle buyer's daughter who can hold her own with any man on the trail, a renowned lady outlaw who rules her gang with her gun, and a judge's daughter who is determined to end local mob rule, as 'the day of the gun is almost over.' You will meet characters whose devotions and decisions enthrall you long after you put the book down. Imbued with an adventurous spirit and with many heartfelt glimpses into the authentic experience of the American West, these stories encompass an enormous array of scenes from the early days of the Wild West well into the twentieth century. Readers of all ages can enjoy these tales, each filled with a passion for life that's as vast as the Texas prairie." -- Dust jacket
