The open West was a land where wanderers could find themselves a home—a home to fight for, to be changed by, sometimes to die for. Jed Asbury was one such journeyman, taking on the identity of a dead man. Allen Ring was another: he’d won his plot of land in a card game only to find he had to win again with a gun. From a has-been boxer to a ranch hand taking on his bosses’ troubles, the characters in these classic Louis L’Amour short stories are all “riding for the brand”—staying loyal to what matters, staking the West with their courage and their blood.

Baker & Taylor
Twelve stories, with the author's comments, deal with loyalty, gamblers, a cowboy who runs away from a gunfight, wagon trains of settlers, Texas rangers, Indians, and revenge
