Bud Miles was a boy when he crossed the Mississippi.
But Bud buried his father after an Indian attack, and
as the wagon train pushed on through Sioux country, the
boy stood as tall as any man ... Tell Sackett killed cougars
at fourteen and fought a war at fifteen. Now Tell was
hauling dangerous freight--a soldier's wife and a fortune
in gold--knowing that someone wanted him dead ... Laurie
Bonnet was a mail-order bride who thought she was a failure
on the frontier. But when the chips were down, she was
the only one who could save her husband's life ... In
these marvelous stories of the West, Louis L'Amour tells
of travelers, gunfighters, homesteaders, and adventurers:
men and women making hard and sudden choices and fighting
battles that could cut a person's life short--or open
up a bold new future on the American frontier.
