Overview

A rarely reprinted pulp magazine novel from bestselling western novelist Louis L'Amour. Showdown on the Hogback was first published in Giant Western magazine August 1950 under the pseudonym Jim Mayo. Years later, as was Louis L'Amour's habit, it was rewritten as Showdown at Yellow Butte. Was any gunfighter ever in a worse predicament? Tom Kedrick found himself caught between two sides - and he was both those sides! Hired by a big land syndicate to drive out what he is told are dangerous squatters and outlaw gangs from a useless swamp, Kedrick soon finds he has been lied to and betrayed. What he finds is fertile is ranch land already claimed by the farmers and ranchers who have been living there peacefully, but are prepared to fight to the death to keep their homes. When Kedrick confronts the syndicate, he finds himself marked for death both by the syndicate's killers and the suspicious farmers. The cover for this ebook edition is reworked from the original magazine cover by George Rozen for Showdown on the Hogback (Rosen also provided covers for The Shadow and Doc Savage magazines during his long career) and was scanned from the publisher's copy of that issue of Giant Western. Also includes a filmography of stars, directors and screenplay writers for all the theatrical films made from the author's westerns.

Not LL's best, but not bad. BUT, the editing of this edition is atrocious! Tons of typos and mistakes. Seems like they just scanned and uploaded and never corrected mistakes. Publisher owes us more than that as readers.
