Published in 1966, this volume is comprised of a series of indelibly etched character studies of men and women living in the cattle raising parts of the west in the late 1800s.

I will lay low for a time, and then check it out again.

Jack Schaefer is a Western writer and is the author of the book Shane. My favorite story is still "Nate Bartlett's Store". I enjoy his humor.

I really liked most of these stories. Others I wouldn't recommend - or once was enough. He is a fantastic writer/story teller.
