This audiobook contains two of legendary Western author Max Brand’s short novels for your listening pleasure.

The Valley of Jewels

Doc Willis, despite the nickname, is just an unemployed cowboy in Daggett Valley, a place that holds many secrets from the past—including a now-deserted mining camp. When Buck Logan lures Willis to the camp with the promise of great riches, Doc doesn’t even suspect he is about to play a part in a most subtle feat of deception. William Daggett, the man who first discovered gold in the valley, is now a half-witted old man whom they will con into believing that he is reliving his past—for Buck Logan believes this man can lead them to a hidden cache of jewels worth a fortune.

Rodeo Ranch

Rodeo Ranch has earned its name from the rodeo that the wealthy, aged Ramon Alvarez sponsors there. An attempt has been made on Alvarez’s life, and Alvarez believes his would-be killer is a member of a secret league bent on his destruction. He approaches Duds Kobbe, winner of the rodeo’s shooting competition, and offers him a job as a personal bodyguard, promising a fabulous reward for doing the job. The only catch is that, while employed, Kobbe cannot leave the Alvarez estate. What Kobbe doesn’t realize is that he will be just as much a target as Alvarez.
