Abstract:

Jim Gary is heading to work for Mart Ray, the foreman for the Double A Ranch, when he comes upon an outfit moving cattle marked with the Double A brand in "Man Riding West." Jim Sandifer knows he'll lose his job at the B Bar Ranch as well as the girl he's sweet on when he prevents a raid by some B Bar men on the Katrischen spread in "The Turkeyfeather Riders." In "Four Card Draw," Allen Ring wins a small ranch -- until the town marshal shows up and tells Allen he can't live there because a murder that had taken place there is still unsolved. In "Home in the Valley," Steve Mehan has driven a herd from Nevada to California in the dead of winter and has the money safely on deposit with Dake & Company. But upon his arrival in Sacramento, he learns that the bank has failed. These and two other stories in Glory Riders demonstrate why Louis L'Amour is one of the world's bestselling authors, whose books have been translated into 20 languages. Forty-five of his novels have been made into films.
