Burroughs only wrote four Westerns, and this was the first, written in 1925. This edition was reprinted in 1979, with an introduction by Robert Morsberger.

This is a hardback edition, a withdrawn library copy, so kind of beat up (and stamped "Whatcom County Library" all over it) but still sound. Great picture of a cowboy with a REAL 10 gallon hat on the cover.

I've just gotten this one (thank you, kestralwing!), and look forward to reading it, since I'm a big fan of ERB's fantasy.

Because I enjoyed ERB's 'Mars' series so much, I was curious about his work in another genre. Unfortunately, I've picked this book up, and put it back down again, on many occasions, and have never cared enough to actually finish the book (though I did appreciate the opportunity to give it a try! As I don't usually read Westerns, perhaps I shouldn't be too surprised.). So I'm going to give this book a chance to find a reader who'll appreciate it more ...

I'm *finally* moving this book along! It stayed with me too long, and became far too attached to the friends it made in Mt. TBR ...

Now it's heading off as a RABCK to jennannej sometime in the week of 11/08/04. Enjoy!

This is another book I will be happy to read. I just picked up some martian tales written by Burroughs (an old beat up paperback I couldn't resist), so now I've got two of his different genres to explore. Thanks for the RABCK!

Journal Entry 7 by jennannej from Coronado, California USA on Tuesday, December 07, 2004
I really enjoyed this book. It was fun and kept me hooked. In a way, your typical western with cowboys, gunmen, Indians, Mexicans, a girl, a bandit, a crooked sheriff, a love triangle (or hexagon)...

I enjoyed the plot. As I said, I was hooked. The book kept me up late one night finishing it. A fun western if you can get into the characters' speech, a kind of written cowboy dialect that takes some work to discipher until you get used to reading it. "I was calc'latin' to go" "I reck'n I'd be goin'..." A WARNING: some of the characters use non-PC (derogatory) racial names.
