A Western TrioLarge 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.This trio of short novels takes its title from the continuing adventures of Brand's popular character Reata, who is on the run with three pack horses loaded with stolen gold -- pursued by a sheriff's posse and the thieves. Lawman Babe Rourke has been called out by Angus Cairn to challenge his skill with fists and firearms. While waiting for Cairn, Rourke is led by a dog to an injured woman who he takes to The Cabin in the Pines. In Joe White's Brand, White and his gang of bank robbers are being pursued by a mysterious solitary rider. The tension mounts as, one by one, each member of the gang meets his end . . .
