SUGARFOOT by Clarence Budington Kelland


Email this review


Good workmanlike job of action and color, in a story of pioneer Arizona, after the Civil War. Jackson Redan, of gentle Southern blood, learns the hard way when he comes to Prescott. His mentors are a wise Jewish merchant, a far seeing saloon owner, an outspoken landlady, and his enemy, Stint, given to lawlessness and ruthlessness. Their quarrel comes to a head over Reva, singing in the saloon, but wanting a respectable life, which ""Sugarfoot"" can give her once he has beaten Stint and proved his right to be a big man in the community.
