Black Thunder

by Max Brand

In "Lawman's Heart," Larry Traynor is driving a stage with his shotgun guard, Sam Whitney, the man who has been his mentor in life, when a hold-up occurs. Sam is shot dead. Traynor is determined to bring the thief to justice, but then fate intervenes. Although he does not recognize the symptoms, or what they mean, Traynor is suffering from heart failure. He is deputized to give pursuit even though, given his condition, it can only lead to his ruin.Joe Palmer in "White-Water Sam" had been a deck hand on the Thomas Drayton before the railroad came. Now the fine river boat is permanently moored in Lake Bennett, useless to her owner, because the only chance for a future is to get her downstream through the impossible rapids of Miles Canyon. Sam Bridgeman once tried to shoot those rapids with a river boat, the Denver Belle. He knew that the only way to do it was to ride the very center of the rapids, but the Denver Belle turned sideways and smashed against the rocks. The experience affected Sam's mind. Now Larry Decatur arrives with enough money to buy the Thomas Drayton, but he knows nothing about river boats and certainly cannot hope to run the rapids in Miles Canyon by himself.In "Black Thunder," Dan Harrigan and Angus MacTee are partners in a mining claim. What divides them in Kate Malone. They both love her, but she loves only one of them, and has gone into hiding. MacTee learns her whereabouts, and heads out, with Dan Harrigan in pursuit.

Brother of the Cheyennes

by Max Brand

Rusty Sabin was born to white parents but brought up by the Cheyenne Indians, who named the redheaded boy Red Hawk. His ability to heal the sick and to make strange magic is widely honored throughout the tribe. But in his twenties, Red Hawk sets out to take his place among white people. When Rusty and his stallion White Horse are nearly at the frontier post of Fort Marston, the river boat he's riding is grounded, and a man called Bill Tenney comes to his rescue.Rusty doesn't know much about the white man's ways--especially a white man like Bill Tenney, a thief and a fugitive. Tenney is only interested in one thing--Rusty's white stallion, considered sacred among the Cheyennes. Meanwhile Major Marston is determined to come between Rusty and his sweetheart, Maisry, and the Cheyennes do all they can to compel Rusty to return to his tribe.First serialized in 1934, Brothers of the Cheyennes--the second installment of the Rusty Sabin trilogy--cemented Max Brand's reputation as one of the most exciting and talented writers working in the Western genre. To this day, Rusty Sabin remains an indelible American character, caught between two worlds and simply trying to do the right thing.

by Max Brand

When Andrew Apperley visits his brother David in the East, he brings along an unexpected companion. Andrew's giant wolf dog, Comanche, is so wild that he has to be chained up for the safety of others. However, when the Apperley brothers come across a man drowning in the East River, Comanche breaks loose from his chains and swims to the man's rescue. In fact, this man, Single Jack Deems, is a convict who has just escaped from Blackwell's Island. Deems wants Comanche for himself, and trails the Apperley brothers as they journey back West. Meanwhile, Andrew has his own problems back home with dangerous outlaw and businessman Alex Shodress. Shodress has learned to steal with immunity from the law, and has imperiled everything Andrew owns. When Deems finally shows up at the Apperley ranch to buy Comanche, Andrew tells him that there is only one way he can win possession of the wolf dog, if he is willing to do it. Once again, beloved Western author Max Brand weaves a compelling story of the Old West, its systems of law and justice, and the people that lived in its time.

The Fighting Four

by Max Brand

His only companions were his stallion, Parade, and a wolf, Frosty, who obeyed nothing but the wild instincts of his breed and the soft commands of his master. Together they were part of the legend of the West. Silvertip was a man who hungered for action the way most men hungered for food. And he found plenty when bank robber Jim Lovell sought his protection. Because, unknown to Silvertip, Lovell was packing a half-million dollars in stolen cash along with his Winchester. And the men he'd double-crossed had shot their way out of jail and were riding hard on the trail of their desperate partner.

The Gauntlet

by Max Brand

FIRST TIME IN PAPERBACK! Max Brand's novels and stories-certainly among the greatest in Western fiction-are always peopled with true, realistic characters and marked by a sense of authenticity few other authors could match. Three of the best examples of this are the short novels found in this collection, each painstakingly restored to Brand's original version. The opening novel tells the tale of a legendary friendship between two men who could take on a whole saloon of tough frontiersmen, but who run into trouble with beautiful Kate Malone. "The King of Rats" features the man known as Reata, a master of the rawhide rope, a man caught between his sense of duty and his love for a gypsy girl. And in the title novel, Joseph Larrimee finally makes a gold strike that would prove his worth to his family . . . but he's willing to give it all up to rescue a mysterious woman from a gang of hardcases.

The Golden West (Book 3)

by Max Brand Zane Grey Louis L'Amour Jon Tuska

When it comes to Western adventure, no author comes close to the three giants included in this landmark volume. These are the men who created the Western, shaped it, and perfected it. Now, for the first time in paperback, The Golden West collects three of their finest short novels. Max Brand's powerful Jargan is carefully restored to its original, full-length glory, with material never before seen. Tappan's Burro has long been considered one of Zane Grey's masterpieces, but only a shorter, edited version has been in print. The version included here was taken directly from Grey's actual manuscript and now appears in paperback for the first time. Louis L'Amour's The Trail to Crazy Man was rewritten years later as Crossfire Trail, which became the basis for the movie of the same name. Presented here is L'Amour's original version. These authors are the stuff of Western legend, and at last you can read their finest work as they themselves intended.

Gunman's Reckoning

by Max Brand

A gunman agrees to do a rich man's dirty work in this classic Western from one of the genre's early mastersDonnegan is not proud of his past. But when words ran dry and matters could only be settled with a gun, he never hesitated to make things right. Now fate has led him to The Corner, a wide-open gold-mining town in the valley where two rivers join. An invalid by the name of Colonel Macon wants Donnegan to settle a long-standing land claim that's been taken over by outlaws. Charmed by the colonel's beautiful daughter, the gunman agrees. But nothing is as it seems in The Corner, where the line separating good from evil is so badly blurred it might not be there at all. A contemporary of Zane Grey and a major influence on Louis L'Amour, Max Brand was a true master of the Western. Gunman's Reckoning is a fine example of the moral complexity, fluid prose, and nonstop action that defines the best of his work. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Gunman's Reckoning

by Max Brand

"It was time then for action, and Lefty Joe prepared for the descent into the home of the enemy. Let it not be thought that he approached this moment with a fallen heart, and with a cringing, snaky feeling as a man might be expected to feel when he approached to murder a sleeping foeman. For that was not Lefty's emotion at all. Rather he was overcome by a tremendous happiness. He could have sung with joy at the thought that he was about to rid himself of this pest."
