Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Johnson perhaps is the best-known female Western writer. This volume collects the title story with "A Man Called Horse," "The Hanging Tree," and "Lost Sister." Besides being the basis for popular Western films, they were voted by the Western Writers of America as four of the five best Western stories ever written, with "Liberty Valance" number one. If you stock only one of Johnson's books, this is the one to have. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
