Abstract:

This collection of original stories from members of the Western Writers of America heralds a rebirth for the western short story. A hero-worshiping young boy gets a history lesson; a tough rancher gets a lesson in helplessness and humanity; a Cheyenne woman uses the powerful medicine of a story to keep her aging husband alife; three losers find treasures that will change their lives. Rich in history, humor and honest emotion, these twenty-three stories offer the best in modern western fiction.
