A Collection of Western Short Stories
From the windswept plains and dusty streets of Dodge City, to the rocky arroyos of Arizona’s Verde Valley, to the early summer green of the Little Bighorn Valley, these small gems give the reader a taste of all that made up the West. Saddle up with the inimitable Dusty Richards as he spins his yarns of lawmen, cowboys, Indians, miners, and the women that loved them.
Ride along with his characters as they facedown a pack of hungry wolves. Cheer them on as they find love in a Dakota blizzard. Laugh uproariously as a stray tomcat nearly destroys a town. Mourn with the girl who loved notorious outlaw Billy the Kid. Bargain along with a trader as he gets more than he bargained for in a Crow village. Be very quiet as you follow a young cowboy in his hopeless attempt to rescue a white captive from the Apache.
Grip the pages until your knuckles are white with tension, weep for love lost and love found, and laugh until you cry. This volume also contains the previously unpublished novella, Out of a Job and Not Earning a Dime. Most of all, though, sit back and relax as Dusty Richards, the master storyteller, brings to life the West as it really was.
