KIRKUS REVIEW

Nine short stories of the west, its peace officers and the military, picture pioneer justice and bravery. Sheriffs getting (or forgiving) their prey, wanderers throwing in their lot with the underdog, falling out among the wanted men, a colonel's daughter picking the right man, a message getting through in spite of Indians and death, the quick but light hand of the men with the star, renegades and man hunts- nothing new but with the distinction of tense tale spinning and flesh and blood characters. Satisfying.
