The Riders of High Rock by Louis L'Amour

Hopalong rode into cattle country just east of the California line looking for his old friend Red Connors. He found Red holed up in a mountain cave with a bullet in his side and a story to tell. The ranchers around Tascotal had been losing their stock, and when Red caught the rustlers in the act, they hunted him down, shot him, and left him for dead. Jack Bolt, a savage, ruthless killer, has brought in a tough band of hardcases to run his operation. And now he's sent them out to take care of the one man who stands in his way: Hopalong Cassidy. But Bolt's about to learn the hard way that if you shoot down a man like Cassidy, you better make sure he never gets up again.

Louis L'Amour writes great action stories and are always good reading, and Riders of High Rock is no exception. As all of his are, this is a good, clean read.

The best Hoppalong Cassidy stories was written by Clarence E Mulford. Mulford created Hoppalong Cassidy in the early 1900's. He wrote him as a real rough and tough cowboy. When they asked L'Amour to write HC, they told him to write Hoppy with less faults and more heroic. This made L'Amour's Hoppalong just a little less realistic... He still wrote a 5 star book, but it's just different from the original that Mulford wrote. Both are worth reading. Check out Clarence E. Mulford in the free e-book section and compare for yourself. Enjoy!

The only thing I don't like is that books don't sync well from the iphone to the ipad like kindle do.

Another great western by the master. I prefer this Cassidy to the TV "drug store" style I watched as a child.

Red Connors is being chased by Sim Aragon and his gang for barging in on him and his gang for stealing cattle,he wishes that Hopalong Cassidy would come and help Connors who is injured badly. The two chase the out laws all over the west and finally find where they are taking the cattle and catch the out laws. Excellent book for those who like western adventures from Louis L'Amour.
