Deal in Wheat, and other Stories of the New and Old West 3.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

Some OCR errors, but still fairly easy to read. One of the stories, 'The Ship That Saw a Ghost', is truly creepy. Several are more humorous than not. And two or three are dramatic, with some deeper philosophical ruminating. Worth a read; nice and short (only 122 pages total).
