Description

These stories are classic western tales with the hero of slightly flawed but righteous character overcoming the greedy unscrupulous town or land bully, with cunning guile, sharp fists and fast guns. In a familiar L'Amour trope, a young widow realizes that she has the fight of her life coming when bad men in town gang together to take her ranch from her.

But the son of that neighbor (whose father was Forrester's good friend before he died) feels there's not enough grass for his cattle as well.Never like short stories but rarely do I not like anything written by Louis L Amour and this was not an exception. Dan remembers latest bandit description "very big man wearin' two guns" p263, as does town boss Harvey Kinsella. Yet what starts as a simple act of petty revenge quickly spirals into a cycle of violence that no one can control. He gathers thousands worth in sacks over days, retreats barely in the nick of time and "did not look back again" p358.

Named for acclaimed comics creator the Will Eisner, the awards are celebrating their 26th year of highlighting the best publications and creators in comics and graphic novels. A person‘s character matters as much as a persons skill in travel, riding horses, branding cattle, and negotiating with neighbors and enemies. Weir certainly performs (some would say embodies) New Minglewood Blues perfectly - a s if it were his own. Along with evocative descriptions of the desert landscape of North Africa and its wildlife, there is a very touching passage about a wounded tern that Pleydell and the rest of the men try to nurse back to health.At the opening of this engaging tale, a lone rider shoots down two men at a ranch house, then flees into the desert.
