    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.

    Young Gincy Tate's father is murdered before he can fulfill a contract to supply the Army with remounts. In order to pay his debts and save the ranch, she must make the sale in his place. Afraid the lien-holder, whom she suspects of being the murderer, will foreclose before June 7, 1883, she tells no one Morris Tate is dead. Instead, she says he is here, there, or elsewhere. Gincy hires two cowboys to help trail the herd to Fort Spokane. One is on the murderer's payroll, but Sawyer Kennett hires on because he has decided Gincy is the woman for him. With an old Indian, who is her shirttail relative, the group battles storm, stampede and sabotage to win their way to the fort and sell the herd. Then Gincy must make it home in time to beat the foreclosure and confront her father's murderer-but only if Sawyer is the man she prays he is.

    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).

    The people of San Angela had no idea Mill Roth left his cattle empire to a woman by the name of Hattie Stamps, the widow of Beaver Stamps, who was Mill’s oldest and best friend. Until she showed up claiming the Roth Empire, everything was fine. Some of the citizens, other cattle operators, and people of high standing were filing section claims and branding cattle as fast as they could be caught. Plat Hargis and Floyd Sutter, both wealthy cattle and land owners, were claiming the largest chunks of the properties. Unbeknown to everyone, another group of men was working quietly to get it all. Lank Lankford, the new sheriff of the town, was caught in the middle. He had left New Mexico and his old friend Hawk Haynes to take the job. He soon realized he would need his old friend’s help. Hawk Haynes rounded up some of his men and left right away, knowing he had his own problems. A gunslinger by the name of Moody Rim was looking to make a reputation; killing the great Hawk Haynes would do that. His way of choice would be shooting Hawk in the back and telling it differently. When Hawk arrives in San Angela, the number of people wanting him and Sheriff Lankford dead increases rapidly. Too many people stood to lose fortunes if Hattie’s will was determined legal. Hattie was tough and unlike any woman anyone had ever met. She spoke her mind and was uninhibited. She had enough men to start a war of any size called for, but she wanted to do things the right way if possible. She decided to play along with Sheriff Lankford and Hawk Haynes. In the doing of it all, Hawk discovers something about himself. A man with a reputation carries a fear of being shot in the back; to his surprise, that isn’t his worse fear at all.

    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.

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.

    Night Winds is set in the late 1800s with plenty of action and humor. Blue Cantor was born in one of the worst brothels along the Texas border. His mother gave him the unusual name of Blue, not because of love or affection, but because blue was the color of his eyes. His last memories of her was when he was a child and the day she died in the fire that scarred his face. Blue and Micah became friends when trapping along the Green River. Both men were loners but found they had a lot in common. They were on their own at an early age and had grown to love the untamed wilderness, whether it was scouting for a wagon train or fighting their way out of some of the toughest saloons in the west.
