Overview


Lance Gordon’s running out of room and time. Back in the Sierras he killed the man who murdered his father. Unfortunately that man turned out to be a Deputy Marshal, and now Lance has a price on his head. Like Alan Ladd as Shane, Lance wants only to live in peace, but he’ll have to go through hell to get there.

Running from the law and the cavalry, Lance heads for the one place no sheriff or soldier will go—into the territory ruled by The Baron of Coyote River. The Baron is the king of the cattle rustlers—as feared and hated as he is powerful. No one dares take him on . . . until now.

Lance is sick of running, and taking on the Baron is his last chance for a second chance. Before the battle is over, Coyote River will run red with blood, as Lance has vowed to redeem himself . . . or die trying.

Hubbard often reminisced about his rough and tumble childhood in Montana. “At the age of three-and-a-half I could ride quite well. . . . They never let me ride any blooded stock; they always insisted that I only ride range broncs and mustangs. It did not matter how often I was thrown when a mustang exploded under me, it was I who was always scolded and cautioned not to be mean to the horses.” Memories such as this remind us that Hubbard himself inhabited the world of The Baron of Coyote River.

Also includes the Western adventure, Reign of the Gila Monster, in which a stranger rides into the roughest, toughest town in the West—and sets out to show the town who’s boss.

"Take a hard ride into a lawless corner of the Arizona territory, as the audio version of The Baron of Coyote River brings a stampede of action to life.
“It delivers plenty of action.”

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In this title originally published in All Western Magazine (Sept. 1936), a mystery man entreats Lance Gordon, on the run from the law since avenging his father’s death, to hunt down a notorious cattle rustler. R.F. Daley, Michael Yurchak, Jim Meskimen, Fred Tatasciore, and Josh Thompson voice this tale, whose heart-racing plot charges at the speed of thrumming horses’ hooves. For listeners keen on fast-paced adventures, who will literally feel the dust kicking up around them." —Library Journal

"...is pure entertainment from first page to last with that L. Ron Hubbard touch giving this tale an enduring reading engagement from beginning to end." —Midwest Book Review

    Why I like westerns

    I thought I was done with Western books after reading through all the Louis L'Amour. But then I discovered a great western writer in L. Ron Hubbard. I especially enjoyed "The Baron of Coyote River" not just because of the western setting and western jargon but because of the bigger-than-life personas of the stories protagonists. Plus I really appreciate his sense of humor as portrayed by the main characters. A real enjoyable read.
