"The Far West takes the place of Mr. Bedford-Jones' beloved Far East in this full-of-action novelette and most effectively demonstrates the power and versatility of its noted author."



H. Bedford-Jones

Here's a real thriller for you—a double-action, big-caliber novelette of adventure in the West, by a writing man who knows his business, the distinguished author of "Sixteen Miles," "Brome's Luck," "Shadows of Saffron" and other noted stories.
