Follow Chick Bowdrie's adventure in these classic westerns by America's favorite storyteller, Louis L'Amour.

Chick Bowdrie could have been an outlaw, but he rode a different trail. The Texas Rangers recruited Bowdrie to help pursue the most wanted men in the Southwest. And Bowdrie knew the terrain all too well: the dusty trails, bitter cattle feuds, the desperate killers, and the weather-beaten towns that could explode into chaos at the wrong word. The Rangers were called in to handle the tough cases, and Bowdrie was the toughest and smartest. He had vowed to seek out justice, but there were times when justice required fists and guns...

McNelly Knows a Ranger
From the day Chick Bowdrie rode up to Noah Whipple's ranch gravely wounded, Whipple had treated him with kindness – almost like a son.

But Chick Bowdrie does not realize just how vicious they are . . . or how ruthless they can be.

With the dead man's horse in tow, Bowdrie ambles into the middle of a dispute between the H&H ranch and the Darcy spread. Seems some H&H hired guns are giving Jack Darcy a hard time . . . and leading the troublemakers is ranch owner Rack Herman, strangely in the middle of many a run-in.

Outlaws of Poplar Creek
Set in a tiny hollow, surrounded by the steep cliffs of Lee's Canyon, Fosdick's Store is essential to the people of Poplar Creek. But lately, it's getting to be more than Moby Fosdick can do to run the place, raise his kids, and stay on the right side of the Tucker gang who hide out in the hills above the canyon.

Few travelers happen by Lee's Canyon. But when Texas Ranger Chick Bowdrie suddenly appears at Fosdick's door looking for Shad Tucker, slowly brewing trouble begins boiling over fast. Before the sun sets, bullets are flying. And by the time it rises again, Bowdrie's badly outnumbered, 16-year-old Lily Fosdick is trapped in a cave with a cold-hearted killer, and it's high time for 19-year-old Jerry Fosdick to decide which side of the law he's on.
