    The day Jingo rode into Tower Creek, the town was busy celebrating its twentieth anniversary. The big event of the festival was a high-stakes poker game in Joe Slade’s saloon with Wally Rankin holding most of the chips. But it didn’t take long for Jingo to figure out why: Rankin was cheating. And it would only take a couple of well-placed bullets to reveal it to the others in the room.

    When Samuel Cross was growing up, he was rarely found without a book in his hands and that was the way his mother, a widow, wanted him raised. His uncle, Stephen Larkin, a frontiersman like Sam’s father, wanted him to be strong and able to fend for himself, so he would take him into the mountains every summer to teach him how to fight and use a weapon. He proved to be as adept at these subjects as he had been at book learning, but when he was eighteen and his mother died, he took a job working for Chandler, the trader at Fort Bostwick, for whom he was a well-paid clerk and, eventually, watchdog of the business. What he didn’t understand was that he looked forward to troublemakers coming into the shop so that he could confront and deal with them. It was during a visit from the district marshal that he learned of Chandler’s crooked ways and of his own notoriety and reputation as a safety killer, one who never fights unless he knows that the law is sure to protect him. When the marshal tells him to leave the fort and learn how to live right, Cross decides to head East. His strength and skill with a gun make Cross both friends and enemies on the boat he is taking down the Mississippi. He is saved one night from a fatal stabbing by Charles Granville, a well-to-do Southerner, who recognizes a startling resemblance between himself and Cross. He proposes that Cross repay him by taking part in a daring deceit. Feeling indebted to Granville, Cross agrees and heads to New Orleans. But can Cross actually pull off the masquerade and fool Granville’s parents, friends, and especially his beautiful sister, Nancy. And what is behind Granville’s desire to have Cross take on the role of himself?

    The summer warpath began in late spring 1876 and was one laid out under the command of General George Crook, perhaps the most experienced Indian fighter in the United States Army at that time. Among other officers under Crook’s command was the daring and resourceful Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer and the 7th Cavalry. The purpose of the campaign was to round up the wild tribes of the Cheyennes and Sioux and place them on reservations. Walt Staley is a drifter, a man who works only long enough so he can get enough money to be traveling again. He rides for Fort Laramie, where he successfully enlists as an Army scout under General Crook. Before Staley arrives at the fort, he is forced by roving Indians to stop at an Army hay camp, where he meets Dave Allison. The two become friends, especially after Allison is transferred to active service under General Crook. Finally, there is Patrick O’Hara, who considers himself the ace reporter at the Chicago Herald. He wants most of all to be attached to Custer’s regiment, believing that Custer alone will be able to subdue the wild Indian tribes. He is disappointed when his editor instead sends him to be attached to General Crook’s expeditionary force. The events that follow will change the lives of these three men forever.

    The time is 1902, the setting eastern Oregon. Magic Child, a fifteen-year-old Native American girl, wanders into the wrong whorehouse looking for the right men. She finds Cameron and Greer, two gunmen taking a timeout from the game after an aborted job in Hawaii. Their violent past doesn’t concern Magic Child. She wants them to kill a monster for her, one she says lives in the ice caves under the basement of Miss Hawkline’s yellow house, and one she says has killed before. But the more she tells them about the monster, the more her story unravels until it isn’t clear if the monster is even real, or if anything else is. Richard Brautigan’s classic surrealist novel has inspired readers for decades with its wild, witty, and bizarre encounters with western-themed psychedelia.

    A new novel from Ron Hansen, the award-winning author of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, about an iconic American criminal of the old West: legendary outlaw, Billy the Kid. Born Henry McCarty, Billy the Kid was a diminutive, charming, blond-haired young man who, growing up in New York, Kansas, and later New Mexico, demonstrated a precocious dexterity at firing six-shooters with either hand—a skill that turned him into an American legend of the old West. He was smart, well-spoken, attractive to both white and Mexican women, a good dancer, and a man with a nose for money, horses, and trouble. His spree of crimes and murders has been immortalized in dime westerns, novels, and movies. But the whole story of his short, epically violent life has never been told as it has been here. In The Kid, Ron Hansen showcases his masterful research and inimitable style as he breathes life into history, bringing listeners back into the late 1800s and into Billy’s boyhood as a ranch hand just trying to wrest a fortune from an unforgiving landscape. We are with Billy in every gunfight and horse theft, and we get to know him in full before his grand death in a hail of bullets in 1881 at the age of twenty-one. Original, powerful, and swiftly told, The Kid is an unforgettable listen about a uniquely American antihero.

    Enjoy twelve half-hour episodes of the Western adventures of the Cisco Kid and his sidekick Pancho from the popular radio series of the 1940s and ’50s. The Cisco Kid was a popular film, radio, television, and comic-book series based on the fictional Western character created by O. Henry in his short story, “The Caballero’s Way,” published in 1907 in the collection Heart of the West. Films and television depicted the Cisco Kid as a heroic Mexican caballero, a more honorable character than in O. Henry’s original story. The Cisco Kid came to radio October 2, 1942, with Jackson Beck in the title role and Louis Sorin as Pancho. It was followed by another Mutual series in 1946, starring Jack Mather and Harry Lang, who continued to head the cast in the syndicated radio series of more than 600 episodes. The radio episodes ended with one or the other of them making a corny joke about the adventure they had just completed. They would laugh, saying, “Oh, Pancho!” “Oh, Cisco!” before galloping off, while laughing. The twelve episodes included in this collection are “Morbid Jones and the Web of Death” (09/26/1957), “Wheel of Chance” (10/01/1957), “The Vengeance of Laughing Lou” (10/03/1957), “Pancho and the Princess” (10/08/1957), “Flood at Humbug City” (12/31/1957), “Salmon River Rustlers” (01/02/1958), “Stampede in Texas” (01/14/1958), “Jingle Bob’s Last Stand” (01/16/1958), “The Fighting Deputies” (01/21/1958), “The Old Shell Game” (01/23/1958), “The Law’s a Fool” (01/28/1958), and “The Son of Rawhide Cargan” (01/30/58).

    Here are twelve episodes of the adventures of an English journalist in the American West of the 1870s in this show from the golden age of radio. Frontier Gentleman was a radio western series aimed at adults that aired on CBS radio for one season in 1958. It starred radio veteran John Dehner as J. B. Kendall, a reporter for the London Times. The series followed the adventures of the freelance journalist as he roamed the western United States in search of stories for his newspaper.

And to survive in those turbulent times, he became as proficient with a gun as he was with a pen. The announcer opened each show with the following: “Herewith, an Englishman’s account of life and death in the West. As a reporter for the London Times, he writes his colorful and unusual accounts. But as a man with a gun, he lives and becomes a part of the violent years in the new territories. Now, starring John Dehner, this is the story of J. B. Kendall, frontier gentleman.” Frontier Gentleman was written, produced, and directed by Anthony Ellis. The supporting cast included Harry Bartell, Lawrence Dobkin, Virginia Gregg, Joseph Kearns, Jack Moyles and Vic Perrin. Music was by Wilbur Hatch and Jerry Goldsmith. This collection includes the following episodes: “A Meeting with Sitting Bull” (9 Feb 58), “The Claim Jumpers” (9 Mar 58), “The Actress” (23 Mar 58), “Aces and Eights” (20 Apr 58), “Duel for a School Marm” (1 Jun 58), “Sheriff Belljoy’s Prisoner” (8 Jun 58), “The Well” (15 Jun 58), “A Wagon Full of Cats” (10 Aug 58), “The Fastest Gun That Never Was” (17 Aug 58), “A Horse for Kendall” (14 Sep 58), “The Preacher” (19 Oct 58), and “The Rainmaker” (26 Oct 58).

    Sheriff Doyle Bannion tries to keep the peace in Perdition Wells, Texas, when a shooting claims the life of an innocent bystander. When a shooting takes place at the Union Eagle Saloon, Dale McAfee, foreman of John Rockland’s mighty Texas Star Ranch, kills a range rider working for Clell Durham, a free-graze cowman. It’s a fair fight, but it’s marked by a tragic accident: the bullet that killed Durham’s rider went through his body and also killed an aged swamper. Several eyewitnesses tell Sheriff Doyle Bannion that the old man had ignored warning calls and continued sweeping, so Bannion rules the involuntary shooting death by misadventure. But the King brothers see things differently—and they’re bent on avenging their father’s death.

    Recalling his early life as a young cowboy, sixty-two-year-old Madison Carter remembers his first love: her name was Estrella O’Sullivan, and he met her the summer he turned sixteen back in 1873. The summer of 1873 marked Madison’s last drive up what is now called the Chisholm Trail. It was the first time he tasted oysters and the only time he pinned on a badge. It was the summer of longhorns, miserable heat, friendship and betrayal, and murder. In the end it was the summer the whole world came crumbling down on the United States, and Madison’s world crashed too. The summer of 1873 was the year Madison watched a bunch of men die. One of them was a man he killed, an encounter one never forgets.

    Fort Laramie was an adult-oriented Western radio series that aired Sunday afternoons on the CBS radio network in 1956. Produced and directed by Gunsmoke’s Norman Macdonnell, this realistic Western drama depicted life at Fort Laramie, an important stop on the Oregon, California, and Mormon Trails, as well as a staging point for various military excursions during the nineteenth century. In 1849 the fort was taken over by the United States Army to protect the many wagon trains of migrant travelers on the trail. The fort was located across the North Platte River from the town of Laramie, at the mouth of the Laramie River, in Wyoming Territory. The radio series starred Raymond Burr as Lee Quince, captain of the cavalry. Regulars included Vic Perrin, Harry Bartell, Jack Moyles, Howard McNear, Sam Edwards, John Dehner, John McIntire, Virginia Gregg, James Nusser, Parley Baer, and Barney Phillips. Most of the scripts were written by John Meston, Kathleen Hite, Les Crutchfield, and John Dunkel. Amerigo Marino supplied the music. These twelve exciting episodes aired in February and April 1956 and include: “Squaw Man”“The Woman at Horse Creek”“Boredom”“The Captain’s Widow”“The Shavetail”“Hattie Pelfrey”“The Beasley Girls”“The Coward”“The Lost Child”“Stage Coach Stop”“The New Recruit”“Capture”

    The winter around Cheyenne, Wyoming, is devastating, killing both people and livestock. John Henry Cole lives three miles out of town on his small ranch, where he waits out the storm that is quickly killing his cattle and horses. Everything he owns is dying before his eyes, and there isn’t anything he can do about it. His dreams of a settled life are as dead as everything else. He knows it’s time to move on, and move on he does—but not in the direction he expected. Teddy Green, a Texas ranger, arrives in Cheyenne and seeks Cole’s help in locating Ella Mims, a woman who once lived in Cheyenne and with whom Cole had once been intimate. Green wants to question Mims concerning her involvement in a Denver City murder … but he’s not the only one searching for her.

    Have Gun—Will Travel follows the adventures of Paladin, a soldier of fortune turned hired gunfighter, played by John Dehner. Paladin prefers to settle problems without violence, yet when forced to fight, he excels. It’s 1875, and Paladin lives at the swanky Carlton Hotel in San Francisco, where he dresses in formal wear, eats gourmet food, attends the opera, has a Chinese valet named Hey Boy, and enjoys the company of beautiful women. When working as a gun-for-hire, he dresses entirely in black, uses calling cards, and wears a holster decorated with a chess knight emblem—a symbol that refers both to his name and to his occupation as a champion-for-hire. One of radio’s best-loved Westerns, Have Gun—Will Travel ran from 1958 until 1960 and was a successful offshoot of the highly rated television show. The twelve suspenseful episodes in this collection aired in 1959 and are “The Return of Doctor Thackeray,” “Winchester Quarantine,” “The Monster of Moon Ridge,” “Death of a Young Gunfighter,” “The Five Books of Owen Deaver,” “Maggie O’Banion,” “The Gunsmith,” “The Colonel and the Lady,” “Gun-Shy,” “In an Evil Time,” “Blind Courage,” and “Roped.”
