One for the Mojave Kid
Few men were as deadly, or
troublesome, with a gun as the Mohave Kid. Ab Kale, marshal of Hinkley, had
warned the Kid to stay away from his town. Even as he trained his own adopted
son, Riley, to handle a gun, he worried for both of them. He knew the Kid was
the bloodthirsty sort who would one day force a showdown. But he couldn’t know
when, or prepare Riley for the test of his young life.
Ruth Gurney arrived home to find
her late father’s cattle ranch in debt, and their trail-boss, Lonigan, missing.
As luck would have it, there is a conveniently available replacement: Hoey
Ives. The ranch hands are uneasy with Ives’s place on the drive, but the money
is desperately needed and there’s no time to wait for Lonigan. After days on
the trail with no sign of water, weak cattle, and restless men, Ruth can’t help
but have second thoughts about the seemingly trustworthy Ives. When he suddenly
proposes and asks for more than her hand in marriage, Ruth knows she has to
find out what he’s really up to, and fast.
Bud Miles was a boy when he crossed
the Mississippi. But Bud buried his father after an Indian attack, and as the
wagon train pushed on through Sioux country, the boy stood as tall as any man. Tell
Sackett killed cougars at fourteen and fought a war at fifteen. Now Tell was
hauling dangerous freight, a soldier’s wife and a fortune in gold, knowing that
someone wanted him dead. Laurie Bonnet was a mail-order bride who thought she
was a failure on the frontier. But when the chips were down, she was the only
one who could save her husband’s life. In these marvelous stories of the West, Louis
L’Amour tells of travelers, gunfighters, homesteaders, and adventurers: men and
women making hard and sudden choices and fighting battles that could cut a
person’s life short, or open up a bold new future on the American frontier. Download and start listening now!
