The Greatest Inventor in the West tells the story of one Joseph Malone, who possessed just the kind of ingenuity necessary for such a feat and whose creations, though they might succeed later, often failed spectacularly the first time they were tried.
When the handsome young inventor falls in love with the beautiful, mute Mary Burke, whose wealthy banker father is financing Malone's new invention, he is forced to put all his talents to use-with rather surprising results.
Based on local legends of the Walla Walla area of Washington, this lively, humorous tale will appeal to anyone with an interest in the history of the Pacific Northwest. Adept at reshaping tall tales, Bill Gulick has given us such stories as Hallelujah Trail, which was adapted into the award-winning film critics call "the funniest Western ever made."
