In the 1930's and 1940's "pulp" magazines were all the rage. L. Ron Hubbard was one of the most prolific and popular writers of that era. The genres in his books included science fiction, fantasy, western, mystery, thriller, horror with a little romance thrown in. In "Six-Gun Caballero," Hubbard tells the story of a fight over land situated on the United States and Mexican border. He writes on the first page: "After all, the United States government will certainly recognize the old Spanish grants." This sets the stage for unfolding the tale. What actually happens is the owner of a 100,00 acre ranch willed to him by his father is threatened when a renegade band makes false claims on his ranch. A devious strategy ensues to outwit the imposters to regain the land and his birthright. Hubbard has a knack for telling a good story by creating plots that twist and turn and this western yarn exemplifies his unique ability.

This is a real western story, like Louis LAmour westerns I enjoy so much. Patrick Obanon is a couragoues hero for sure and outsmarts the bad guys. I love stories like this one. The story really has you wanting to find out what happened and keeps you glued to the pages!
