The first 'Western' novel in the series featuring Larry 'Hunch' Hoyden.
Here is a rich, blood-stirring tale, with the sun-scorched Prairies and the sombre depths of Canyons as its background.|
In the thunder of the horses hooves, in the bitter tang of hot dust
and burned cordite the story races on. The sharp-shooting Larry "Hunch" Hoyden
and his pardners Gabby and Pins join the Crazy "T" Ranch, and from then on they
fight with blazing guns to discover the secret which lurks deep in the mysterious
reaches of Red Canyon. What is it down there that forces sherrif's deputies to turn
crooked and outlaws to murder without provocation ?
With all the traditional colour and romance of the West, this book fires the
imagination and cannot be laid aside. It is an adventurous, action-packed picture,
and like such epic stories as 'Boom Town' and 'Dodge City' it
bears the authentic touch which makes it come alive.
