Abstract:

Set in the still untamed wilderness, on ranches, and in bordertowns, these tales contain the furious action and the wild adventures that have attracted a wide audience. The book opens with "Reata's Peril Trek," a rousing short novel about a drifter who fought with a rawhide lariat instead of a six-gun, an indomitable stranger facing the dangers on man and nature. "Crazy Rhythm" shows how deadly poker games can be, and reveals here what happened to one survivor. "Dust Storm" places a small-time rancher between two feuding cattle barons during a cattle stampede. "A Lucky Dog" is an off-trail wilderness adventure about a notorious thief, his pursuer, and a gutsy white bull terrier trapped by a blizzard. "The Third Bullet" is a novelette in which a desperate young rancher finds a fighting way to reclaim a life almost wrecked by his own bad luck. "The Sun Stood Still" describes a killing job well done, while "Half a Partner" is a dramatic tale of two fighting men. Each work in this strong and varied collection has a short introduction by William F. Nolan, a well known authority on the great Western writer. This is a book in which Max Brand rides again!.
