Facing budget cuts, the Texas Rangers agree to clean up Fairdale... More > in less than a year as a way of justifying their continued existence. Rangers Vaughn Steele and Marshal Sitter tackle the job, with Sitter going underground to ferret out the brains behind the criminal operations. This exciting yarn will be of special interest to Zane Grey fans. It is one of the few Grey novels written in the first person and is therefore much more character-driven than his usual work. Further, it is appearing here for the first time in its original form. As Grey's son notes in an introduction, significant changes were made when the story was first serialized, and subsequent publications either maintained the alterations or added new ones.

eBook (ePub): $1.99

More > Spanish land grants can only be compared to the European immigrant when for the last time he looks on the land of his birth before sailing. Of all this Las Palomas was typical. In the course of time several such grants had been absorbed into its baronial acres. But it had always been the policy of Uncle Lance never to disturb the Mexican population; rather he encouraged them to remain in his service. Thus had sprung up around Las Palomas ranch a little Mexican community numbering about a dozen families, who lived in jacals close to the main ranch buildings. They were simple people, and rendered their new master a feudal loyalty.< Less

Rebel Spurs: Classic American Western Novel By Andre Norton
eBook (ePub): $1.99
In 1866, only men uprooted by war had reason to ride into Tubacca, Arizona, a nondescript town as shattered and anonymous as the veterans drifting through it. So when Drew Rennie, newly discharged... More > from Forrest's Confederate scouts, arrived leading everything he owned behind him-his thoroughbred stud Shiloh, a mare about to foal, and a mule-he knew his business would not be questioned. To anyone in Tubacca there could be only one extraordinary thing about Drew, and that he could not reveal: his name, Rennie. Drew had come west from Kentucky to find a father he had thought dead until the year before. Kinship with a man like Hunt Rennie, however-the legendary Don Cazar, owner of a matchless range and prize stallions-was not a claim to be made quickly or lightly.

Starr, of the Desert: Classic American Western Novel By B.M. Bower
eBook (ePub): $1.99
A COMMONPLACE MAN WAS PETER Daffodils were selling at two bits a dozen in the flower stand beside the New Era Drug Store. Therefore Peter Stevenson knew that winter was over, and that the weather... More > would probably "settle." There would be the spring fogs, of course—and fog did not agree with Helen May since that last spell of grippe. Peter decided that he would stop and see thedoctor again, and ask him what he thought of a bungalow out against the hills behind Hollywood; something cheap, of course—and within the five-cent limit on the street cars; something with a sleeping porch that opened upon a pleasanter outlook than your neighbor's back yard. If Helen May would then form the habit of riding to and from town on the open end of the cars, that would help considerably; in fact, the longer the ride the better it would be for Helen May. The air was sweet and clean out there toward the hills. It would be better for Vic, too.< Less

eBook (ePub): $1.99
Rancher Bill Belllounds had brought up Columbine as though she were his daughter. Out of affection for her foster father, Columbine had agreed to marry Bill's son., Jack-a drunkard, gambler, coward,... More > and thief. But the man she really loved was cowboy Wilson Moore, and he was everything Belllound's son should have been. Then the strange, clairvoyant little man they called Hell-Bent Wade came to work at the ranch. "You can believe me when I say somethin' will happen," he declared prophetically. "Columbine isn't goin' to marry Jack Belllound's." I loved to read the dialogue, Zane Grey's books may be a little dated to the time period when he wrote them, but it's still a good book.< Less
