Wildcard Westerns have hand-picked twelve outstanding short stories of the Old Frontier for this edition of western classics. Owen Wister, Bret Hart, Ed Garron and Andy Adams are among the contributors, all masters of western adventure. The stories take you behind the guns of a Civil War howitzer battery, into the Rocky Mountains in search of outlaws, and across the wild country of old Arizona in the midst of the Indian Wars. Not to mention an encounter between feuding landowners, and a wolf-hunt in southern Texas. Full of action and historical detail, these are great examples of the best of western fiction.
Ed Garron, born 1959, is a Western Fiction and Childrens' Books writer from a British-American family now working in the U.K. He has worked as a gun salesman, livestock farmer, hunting guide, History teacher, and college lecturer. He believes in freedom, democracy and the right of every citizen to smash pumpkins with a pump action shotgun.
