Bandits, outlaws, romance, and adventure abound in
Hard Ride, the second-ever collection of tales of the
American West from renowned, seven-time Spur Award-winning
author Elmer Kelton
Each of Elmer Kelton’s superb stories of the West showcase
the strength and power western spirit. They are filled with
marvelous characters—from a rodeo clown who seeks redemption
via romance, to an outlaw who comes to the aid of ranchers
with no other recourse to justice. Powerful Western women
feature as importantly as the menfolk here, including a
cattle buyer’s daughter who can hold her own with any man on
the trail, a renowned lady outlaw who rules her gang with
her gun, and a judge’s daughter who is determined to end
local mob rule, as “the day of the gun is almost over.” You
will meet characters whose devotions and decisions enthrall
you long after you put the book down.
Imbued with an adventurous spirit, Hard Ride is
filled with many heartfelt glimpses into the authentic
experience of the American West. These stories encompass an
enormous array of scenes from the early days of the Wild
West into the twentieth century. Readers of all ages can
enjoy these tales, each one filled with a passion for life
that’s as vast as the Texas prairie.
