Summary
Collected from the pages of Lariat magazine, these 22 classic tales feature all the beloved subjects and icons--stagecoaches, gold rush towns, and whiskey bars--that represent the romance and excitement of America's frontier. Authors such as Zane Grey ("The Great Slave"), Max Brand ("Lawman's Heart"), Luke Short ("Brand of Justice"), and Will Henry ("The Streets of Laredo") vividly depict the gunslingers, compadres, sheriffs, Indians, and riders of the purple sage that populate this always fascinating world.
