Two Western novellas by the incomparable Lauran Paine, a titan of
the Western genre. "Tomahawk Meadow" tells the story of Ladd
Buckner, a stranger who arrives in a small town in Arizona
Territory. Buckner buys the local saddle and harness shop, but when
the townspeople recognize his stitch work, the town marshal decides
to investigate. Before he can reveal his findings, however, the
marshal is killed during the course of a daring bank robbery. A
letter is found in his pocket that states Ladd Buckner had been
released from prison after serving a term for bank robbery. To keep
his good name, Buckner will have to track down the men who robbed
the town and killed the sheriff, in this thrilling story about
honor, loyalty, and running from one's past. In "Promise of
Revenge," Tom Barker returns to the small cow town of Beatty,
where, fifteen years before, his mother had abandoned him and had
run off with another man. Tom's father, a freighter, abused the boy
while authorities looked the other way. Now he is grown, has
acquired a good deal of wealth, and is back in Beatty, intent on
evening the score with the town that rejected him. Although handy
with a six-gun, he'll have to uses his wits and his wealth to
outsmart the rich locals who never thought Tom Barker would return
