That's what they told Mary Breydon when she came to manage a rundown stagecoach station on the Cherokee Trail.  But Mary had no choice.  Her fine Virginia home burned to ashes in the Civil War and her husband was brutally shot down on the way to Colorado.  She needed to make a new beginning for herself and her young daughter on the raw frontier.  Isolated in an untamed land, their life at the station was achingly hard and they faced the constant danger of attacks by outlaws and marauding Indians.  Yet with the support of a spirited Irish woman, a fearless orphan boy and most of all, the mysterious gunman Temple Boone, Mary found the courage to shape her station into a vital stop on America's westward journey.  Until the vicious murderer whose bloody rampages had stained her past suddenly stalked Mary Breydon to Cherokee Station.

THEY CAME TO THE COMSTOCK...

It was just a godforsaken mountainside but no place on earth was richer in silver. For a bustling, enterprising America, this was the great bonanza. The dreamers, the restless, the builders, the vultures—they were lured by the glittering promise of instant riches and survived the brutal hardships of a mining camp to raise a legendary boom town. But some sought more than wealth. Val Trevallion, a loner haunted by a violent past. Grita Redaway, a radiantly beautiful actress driven by an unfulfilled need. Two fiercely independent spirits, together they rose above the chal-lenges of the Comstock to stake a bold claim on the future. Louis L'Amour is the bestselling storyteller of the Ameri-can past with over 160 million copies of his books in print. Now, bringing to life all the sweep and excitement of the world's greatest silver strike, Louis L'Amour has written his biggest novel of the West.

LOUIS L'AMOUR
AMERICA'S STORYTELLER


Dear Reader,

I've derived a lot of pleasure in the past decade in personally preparing collections of my short stories for my publisher, Bantam Books, to issue in paperback.

Now, without my permission, a publisher I do not approve of is trying to publish some of my stories that appear in this collection in a book bearing this same title.  I am outraged by their completely unauthorized edition of my stories, and I have put together this collection so my fans will not be shortchanged.

The only authorized edition of Dutchman's Flat is this one, published by Bantam.  There are more of my personally selected and edited stories in this authorized edition than in any unauthorized version.  And, as I've done for Bowdrie's Law, Buckskin Run, and my other books of short stories, I've also added new introductory notes of interest and written a special forward that puts these stories in an historical and personal context.

BANTAM BOOKS IS THE ONLY PUBLISHER AUTHORIZED TO ISSUE MY SHORT STORIES IN BOOK FORM.  ONLY ACCEPT MY SHORT STORY COLLECTIONS PUBLISHED BY BANTAM.

I am confident that my loyal fans will want to read only the authorized Bantam editions of my stories.

Sincerely,

Louis L'Amour

Holed up in a cabin in the Idaho hills, the mysterious man who called himself Trent wasn't looking: for trouble.  It came looking for him.  A trigger-happy kid named Cub Hale emptied his gun into an unarmed man.  Then he came swaggering after Trent.  The girl who ran the gambling hall tried to get him to hightail it.  But Trent wasn't buying.  Even in that forsaken back country, he knew when a man had to speak with his shooting iron.

IT WAS ALMOST
TOO MUCH FOR EVEN A
SACKETT TO HANDLE!


He could outride and outshoot any five men, but he was a fool for a lady in distress.  The posse was hot on his trail for murder when he took time out to rescue Sylvie from a gang of desperados.  It wasn't till she'd bushwhacked him with a shotgun, and tried to poison him that he realized she was up to no good.  And no sooner had he shot his way out of her clutches than he met Penelope.  After he'd heard her sad story, he should have cut and run, but somehow a Sackett never seems to learn the easy way.

A BROTHER'S VENGEANCE

When Owen Chantry returned to his brother's ranch for a visit, he found his brother had been savagely murdered and two dirt farmers - Ether and son - were now building a life on his land.  Chantry didn't mind the squatters much, but Mac Mowatt's gang was another matter.  Mowatt believed a fortune was buried somewhere on the Chantry place.  One man had died for it already, and Mowatt told Chantry and the squatters they'd he next.  That forced Chantry to make the only decision a brother could: to make the cold-blooded killers pay... or die trying.

PICK UP A GUN, AND STAY


"I'm just passin' through," the rider said when they asked him his name.  And from then on, in the high country around Parrott City, he was called just that: Mr. Passin' Through, a man who rode a blue roan with a skull and crossbones brand and didn't know how to keep to himself.  And he wouldn't keep to himself.  Because something about a parched and dusty ranch appealed to him, and something about a woman's hair made him think of not being alone, and something about a scheme to grab the land away from its rightful owner made him want to stay and fight.  And so he stayed and fought.  Because liars, killers, and cheaters were coming after Passin' Through with murder in their eyes, and a gun had a way of making him feel at home.

A WORD FROM
LOUIS L'AMOUR


"Almost four decades ago, when my fiction was being published exclusively in 'pulp' western magazines, I wrote a number of novel-length stories, known back then as 'magazine novels.'  In creating them, I lived with my characters so closely that their lives were still as much a part of me as I was of them long after the issues in which they appeared went out of print.  Proud as I was of how I presented the characters and their adventures in the pages of the magazines, I wanted to tell the reader more about my people and why they did what they did.  So, over the years, I revised and expanded these magazine works into novels that I published as full-length paperbacks under different titles.

"These particular early magazine versions of my books have long been a source of considerable speculation and curiosity among many of my readers, so much so of late, that now I've decided to bring four of my 'magazine novels' back into print in this latest volume of my short fiction."

"I hope you enjoy them."

THE RIDER OF THE RUBY HILLS CONTAINS
• "Showdown Trail," the original version of the novel
THE TALL STRANGER
• "A Man Called Trent," the first telling of

LOUIS L'AMOUR
AMERICA'S STORYTELLER


Dear Reader,

I've taken great pride over the years in personally selecting and editing collections of my short stories for my publisher, Bantam Books, to issue in paperback.  Now, without my permission, a publisher, with whom I am in no way associated, is attempting to sell a book with this same title containing some of my stories that appear in this collection.  I am outraged by their completely unauthorized edition of my stories, and I have put together this collection so my fans will not be shortchanged.

The only authorized edition of Riding for the Brand is this one, published by Bantam.  Not only are there more of my personally chosen stories in this authorized edition than in any unauthorized version with this title, but, as with Bowdrie's Law, Buckskin Run, and my six other Bantam books of short stories, I've also added new introductory notes of interest and written a special foreword that puts this work in personal and historical perspective.

BANTAM BOOKS IS THE ONLY PUBLISHER AUTHORIZED TO ISSUE MY SHORT STORIES IN BOOK FORM.  ONLY ACCEPT MY SHORT STORY COLLECTIONS PUBLISHED BY BANTAM.

I am confident that my loyal fans will want to read only the authorized Bantam editions of my stories.

Sincerely,

Louis L'Amour

HOPALONG CASSIDY RIDES AGAIN!


In this first of four classic frontier novels, Louis L'Amour adds his own special brand to the life and adventures of one of America's favorite fictional cowboys, Hopalong Cassidy.  In The Rustlers of West Fork, the quick-thinking, fast-shooting cowpuncher heads west to deliver a fortune in bank notes to his old friend, Dick Jordan.  When he arrives at the Circle J, he discovers that the rancher and his daughter, Pam, are being held prisoner by a desperate band of outlaws led by the ruthless Avery Sparr and his partner Arnold Soper.

Even if Hopalong Cassidy can free Jordan and Pam, he will have to lead them across rough and untamed Apache country, stalked by the outlaws who have vowed to gun him down.  But Hopalong is no stranger to trouble, and before his guns - or his temper - cool, he's determined to round up Span and his gang and bring the outlaws to justice... dead or alive!  This classic tale of pursuit and survival is vintage L'Amour and adds new life and luster to the legend of Hopalong Cassidy.

LOUIS L'AMOUR, America's favorite storyteller, has thrilled a nation by bringing to life the brave men and women who settled the American frontier. There are now more than 225 million of his books in print around the world.
