Claiming of the Deerfoot
A Western DuoLarge Print - 2001
Selected with the classic Western fan in mind, this series draws from the work of the acknowledged masters of Western fiction and some contemporary authors writing in the traditional Western style. Also included are anthologies and collections of short works by favorite authors. Here are two of the finest short novels of one of the genre's classic writers. The title story finds Ed Thorn, ostracized from stage driving, arriving in the mining community of Ledge, where the Deerfoot Stage Line has become the target of a gang of outlaws. In desperation, Tom Hunter accepts Ed's offer to drive for the line. In "Barbed Wire", Jim Lance occupies a homestead he won in a poker game. But Ed Nugent, a big rancher and chairman of the County Commissioners, has no intention of letting him stay. If Nugent can't burn out Lance and the other small ranchers, he'll ruin them with a new barbed wire law.
