A Western QuintetBook - 2014
"Murder Stalks the Fur Trails" opens this new quintet of short novels by Les Savage, Jr., set during the days of the fur trade in the Western wilderness in which Lee Brand, an independent trapper, decides that the time has come to break the monopoly Rocky Mountain Fur has on purchasing the furs he and his partner have harvested. In "Crow-Bait Caravan" Kaycee Garrett turns down a bribe not to transport hydraulic mining equipment deep into Montana Territory for Britten O'Hare and travels through an area devastated by cholera, haunted by hostile Sioux Indians, and rivaled by a well-financed freighting company bent on destroying all competition? Young Dobie Burton in "Wild Men of the Fur Frontier" runs away from home in Tennessee and heads into the wilderness to get his start as a fur trapper. For Painter Cole in "The Buckskin Army Heads South" the objective is to find where Esperanzado Panuela hid his cache of furs before he was tortured to death.
