The Shadow of Silver Tip

( 1 )

Overview

Tom Converse was the kind of man to pull a Colt from his back pocket faster than the seasoned gunslingers could draw from a hip holster. It seemed to come easy to him - like breathing in and out. But was he also the kind of man to make a whole town trigger-happy with fear? Did he hide behind a dark mask and come back for vengeance?

Was he The Shadow? Sylvia didn't think so. "I'm the only one who knows the face of the real Shadow," she said. A dappled chestnut with black points ...

Overview

Tom Converse was the kind of man to pull a Colt from his back pocket faster than the seasoned gunslingers could draw from a hip holster. It seemed to come easy to him - like breathing in and out. But was he also the kind of man to make a whole town trigger-happy with fear? Did he hide behind a dark mask and come back for vengeance?

Was he The Shadow? Sylvia didn't think so. "I'm the only one who knows the face of the real Shadow," she said. A dappled chestnut with black points is the only cue to the identity of a town's secret horror. It could be a case of mistaken identity, but yet, again . . .

This early Max Brand classic features the mysterious and ambiguous figure of The Shadow, a masked and lonely gunslinger who foreshadows great Western legends like Zorro and the Lone Ranger.

When the Shadow, a notorious outlaw-in-hiding, takes all of his money in a poker game, Tom Converse is sent on a chase that will eventually lead to the discovery of the outlaw's true identity. 3 cassettes.

    ONE OF MAX BRAND'S BEST

    Before Zorro and the Lone Ranger there was The Shadow created by Max Brand. For many, Max Brand is the quintessential teller of Western tales. What some may not know is that Max Brand was just one of the pen names chosen by Frederick Faust, a prolific writer who sometimes turned out 12,000 words in a weekend. Further while we remember him as Max Brand he also created the character of Destry and Dr. Kildare (which made him enormously wealthy).

    Faust was intrigued by myths and that may be one reason for his development of The Shadow, a mysterious figure who could out draw anyone and made other men tremble. There is only one clue to his identify and that is his horse - he rides a chestnut horse with black points.

    There are, I believe 10 books in the Silvertip series with THE SHADOW OF SILVER TIP being the last. In this tale The Shadow proves himself to be quite a poker player when he wins all of Tom Converse's money. Obviously, that's nothing to be taken lately so Converse embarks on a chase that will eventually reveal the true identify of The Shadow.

    Buck Schirner, a popular character actor, has narrated many of Brand's books (Blackie and Red, etc). His voice is the one quite often associated with this author's stories and rightly so because he brings an authenticity and expert's nuance to his characterization.

    If you're a Western fan, here's one for you - enjoy!
