Open Rangeby Lauran Paine
Boss Spearman knows the end is near for open range men like him, cattlemen who drive their herds through the country to graze and then move on. Local stockmen are staking claims to grazing areas throughout the West. Spearman has no quarrel with that, but he isn't about to let anyone intimidate him or attack the woman he loves without putting up a fight. So when Denton Baxter's threats turn to murder, Spearman knows he has to get justice -- any way he can.

I am not much of a western genre reader but I must recommend this book. Excellent story well told. Mr. Paine knows very well of what he writes and can spin a great yarn.
Open Range, originally titled 'The Open Range Men' is by far the best western I've read in the last quarter century. Very spellbinding, I couldn't put it down. I knew Lauren Paine, in fact her was a mentor of mine. There's a touch of Lauren in every writer he ever helped. See the movie, for sure, but read the book first!
