This is an original collection of three short novels by Max Brand never published before in book form. In "The Red Bandanna", happy-go-lucky cowhand, Clancy Morgan, didn't believe in tales of murderers, traitors, and gunmen. He had never seen a killing and was no good with a gun. But when his best friend was accused of murder, and the murdered man's brother vowed vengeance, Clancy changed his mind in a hurry. He had to learn how to shoot and shoot straight to keep his own neck out of the hangman's noose. Also in this trio are "His Name His Fortune" and "Soft Metal".
