The oldest maiden lady in New Mexico : and other stories by Clay Fisher( Book )
2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 192 libraries worldwide
Lively, vigorous, tension-packed, this is a brand new collection of short stories by a writer who really knows his western lore. The title story, which is also the longest, is about a timid preacher who turns into a David and defeats his bullying tormentor with the aid of a slingshot and his urgings of the oldest maiden lady in New Mexico - a ravishing schoolteacher, aged twenty-three. In "Isley's Stranger" a hard-luck cowboy meets up with a stranger who repairs the cattle-sheep feud and then disappears when peace is restored. "The Trap" is a swiftly paced narrative tale concerning a bank robber and a wild mustang trying to escape a posse in a box canyon. In "Mighty Big Bandit" an outlaw risks his life to save a small girl. A philosophical drifter, mistaken for a murderer, turns on the real killer in "Sundown Smith." An aging bounty hunter pays off an old debt by attacking four armed outlaws in "The redeeming of Fate Rachel." And there's a flashback to what once was in "The Ghost Town." Within these pages, the reader will find rich variety of plot and tone - openhearted humor, gustiness, and a persistent combination of the sweet and the tart, the caustic and the tender. Every story (there's an even dozen of them) reveals the unmistakable talents and unflagging energy of this born storyteller -- Book jacket
