This edition includes four illustrations in both color and black & white. Mulford’s first! The original version (not the Re-Edited “Rustler’s Round-up”) with the real Hopalong!! This isn’t the cleaned up “Hopalong” Boyd played in the movies. This Hopalong is the young, carefree cow-puncher whose life revolves around the Bar-20 Ranch, gambling, smoking, drinking, and cussing. This book is filled with action and humor! But be prepared for a rough cowboy who shoots to kill, and has no respect for our “neighbors south of the border”. The whole BAR-20 gang is here as they go from one adventure to the next, fighting the neighboring ranch, outlaws, and rustlers. Give it a try; you’ll be a Hopalong Cassidy Fan after you read this!!! The events of this book precede BAR-20 DAYS (1911).
This book has been carefully edited “line-by-line” to eliminate transcription errors and to match the original edition. It has not been “edited for content” and includes all original racial slurs, odd spellings, cussing, drinking and the like.

Written when there were real cowboys. A few words that were new to me but common in their time. It sure was not the Hoppy we knew from TV. I enjoyed the read.
This book was awesome, easy to read on the nook. I would highly reccommend it. I plan to buy the rest of the Hopalong Cassidy Series from this publisher.
