Discover six classic novels as you follow the footsteps of the trailblazers who settled the American West. As the American West opened up to settlers after the Civil War, people were eager for tales of great adventures, endless possibilities, and the pioneering spirit. Classic Westerns is a collection of six novels that captured this sense of exploration and brought the rugged landscape into the homes of readers everywhere. These novels—The Virginian by Owen Wister, O Pioneers! by Willa Cather, The Lone Star Ranger and The Mysterious Rider by Zane Grey, and Gunman’s Reckoning and The Untamed by Max Brand—tell of life on the open plains, in dusty outposts, and alongside majestic mountain ranges that rose to greet travelers who ventured forth into the unexplored country to find their destinies.

The Old West comes vividly to life in two novels from Matt Braun—America’s authentic voice of the Western Frontier Cimarron Jordan From Abilene to the Smoky Hill country, they fought and hunted side by side before going their separate ways. Cimarron Jordan would go on to build a town in Texas, carve a trail to Kansas, and battle the Comanche in the Staked Plains. Virge Hollister, meanwhile, made his career with a badge and a gun. Now, on the streets of Dodge City, the two legends of the fierce plains are about to come face-to-face again...as the deadliest of enemies. El Paso It’s 1881. El Paso is a booming border town crawling with corrupt politicians and gunslick outlaws—and it’s about to face its greatest challenge yet: the savagery of the notorious Banning Brothers. Dallas Stoudenmire is the marshal El Paso has hired to bring a quick end to the Bannings’ reign of terror. Now the former Texas Ranger must rely on nerves and a quick gun to bring swift justice to a desperate town—and save his own life. “A master storyteller.”—Elmer Kelton

The Hanging at Leadville Welcome to Leadville—a melting pot of Irish and Swedes, steelworkers and scam artists. Brady Kenton is America's foremost traveling reporter, and he's come to this violent, whiskey-stained, mining town to sniff out a story for Gunnison's Illustrated American. Alex Gunnison, son of the famous publisher, is along for the ride to help keep the trouble-seeking Kenton out of harm's way. But with a dead body found and lost, and an innocent boy running for his life, the two men already have more than enough headlines. Now they're on the hunt for a Civil War criminal who may at-large in Leadville—and up to his killing ways again... Firefall Montana Territory, 1884. A huge fire has consumed the sin-soaked town of Gomorrah, just as crazy "Parson" Peabody, a drunken, broken-down preacher, had foretold. With the town in ruins, con man Gib Rankin sees a chance for profit...Meanwhile, young Alex Gunnison passes through Gomorrah looking for Brady Kenton, his friend and fellow Gunnison's Illustrated American reporter. Is the badly burned body he discovers really that of Kenton? What connection does Rankin—with Parson and a mysterious woman in tow—have to the lost reporter? And what of the unexplained "firefall" that seems to spontaneously ignite an entire town?

When the earliest filmgoers watched The Great Train Robbery in 1903, many of them shrieked in terror at the very last clip when one of the outlaws turns directly toward the camera and fires a gun, seemingly, directly at the audience. The puff of smoke was sudden and it was hand colored so that it looked real. Today, we can look back at that primitive movie and see all the elements of what would evolve into the Western genre. Perhaps it is the Western's early origins_The Great Train Robbery was the first narrative, commercial movie_or its formulaic yet entertaining structure that has made the Western so popular. Whatever the case may be, with the recent success of films like 3:10 to Yuma and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, the Western appears to be in no danger of disappearing. The story of the western is told in The A to Z of Westerns in Cinema through a chronology, a bibliography, and an introductory essay. However, it is the hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on cinematographers; composers; producers; films like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Dances With Wolves, The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, High Noon, The Magnificent Seven, The Searchers, Tombstone, and Unforgiven; such actors as Gene Autry, Kirk Douglas, Clint Eastwood, Henry Fonda, James Stewart, and John Wayne; and directors like John Ford and Sergio Leone that will have you reaching for this book again and again.

TOMBSTONE In 1878, a struggling prospector found silver in the jagged mountains of Arizona. Within a year the town of Tombstone was filling up with merchants, tradesmen, gamblers, whores, and gunslingers. And then the Earp family came to Tombstone--five brothers and their women and their wives. Along with Doc Holliday and a band of thieves, Wyatt Earp treated the Arizona territory as his personal stomping grounds--until Wells Fargo decided to put an end to a string of savage stage robberies. With the legend of the OK Corral shoot out fanning out across the frontier, private detective Luke Starbuck was sent to Tombstone to find the truth. And when he got there, Starbuck's mission turned into one burning, personal obsession: to kill Wyatt Earp... THE SPOILERS Private detective Luke Starbuck has been hired to ferret out the Judas working for Central Pacific--the mastermind behind a string of train robberies. The target: gold shipments from the Frisco mint. All Starbuck has to do is pass himself off as an outlaw and infiltrate the pack. But getting inside this hellhole of crime is dangerously easy if you make the right moves. Make the wrong ones, and getting out could be murder.

FORTY LASHES LESS ONE The hell called Yuma Territorial Prison can destroy the soul of any man. It’s worse for those whose damning crime is the color of their skin. The law says Chiricahua Apache Raymond San Carlos and former black soldier Harold Jackson are murderers, and they’ll stay behind bars until they’re dead and rotting. But even in the worst place on Earth, there’s hope. Now for two detested inmates—first enemies, then allies by necessity—their chance at salvation waits at the end of a mad, violent contest . . . on a bloody trail that winds toward Arizona’s five most dangerous men.
