I've always loved "Hopalong (Bill) Cassidy" since I was a child (1950) strictly through the movies. Watched everything collected all audio and videos of.
Now for the first time I decided to go back to his roots and the written word of "Clarence E. Mulford". This was the greatest discovery in my lifetime joy of Hoppy!
Mulford had the true gift of spinning a western tale and giving us the Bar-20 and all those wonderful colorful characters. This is his first and it was awesome! Clarence wrote 28 Hop
Total disregard for life, women, reality; if that's what you like this is your book. Mind you, I am a fantasy fan, but this book has nothing to do with the genre - it's just baloney. I'm also a fan of historical fiction, and generally any kind of good writing, including colloquial speech where appropriate. Can't say I found any of that going on ... although there was was lots of "yu this" and "fer th' that". Read a bit if it interests you; this is a loosely organized batch of stories where most ...more

Listend to this one on my Kindle. I'm sorry it took me this long to get to it. There's lots of hilarious dialogue and situations. Note that this isn't really a novel per se. It's more a collection of individual incidents, althoguh some of them are marginally related. The characters are fascinating, larger than life. It's much in the tradition of the Texas Tall Tale. At times you almost expect Pecos Bill to show up.
Lots of fancy dude words so the three stars are for language. But it was a shock to apprehend that we were glorifying what today would probably be defined as lawless, racist, sexist, destructive gang behavior. No need to read any more for me, thanks. Clearly written, I believe (and could be way, way wrong) from the comfort of a seat by the fire somewhere in New England? :-)

A very interesting read, rather indicative of early western lit. A real shoot-'em-up of a book, with lots of us-vs-them situations, More of a collection short stories than a full-fledged novel. I'm glad I read it, but it satisfied my itching for a Hopalong Cassidy book.

This early Hop-along Cassidy book is for fans only, and I mean fans of author Clarence Mulford, not the Cassidy films which have little in common with this book. It is very badly written. Very.
