Twelve new stories by a prominent Western writer of short stories, novellas, and novels. 


This is a collection of a dozen Western stories in which people ride into danger and draw upon their own fortitude to get out—men and women, guns and horses, wrongdoing and justice. It includes the award-winning story “Return to Laurel,” which was a finalist for the Western Writers of America Spur Award and for the Western Fictioneers Peacemaker Award in short fiction, and "Darlings of the Dust," which was featured in Contention and Other Frontier Stories.
