|About the Book|
Here for the first time in book form are three of Giff Cheshires finest Western short novels. In Comanche Prairie Torp Toynbee has been appointed trail boss over a herd only to later be falsely accused of murder. Escaping from jail, how much can he do as a fugitive to prove his innocence? River of Gold finds immigrant Mike Trahan building a barge to take advantage of the river trade in wheat only to have everything upset by the discovery of gold in California. A blizzard is pending in No Mans Range and desperation forces small cattleman Bart Tyler to kidnap the woman preventing him from moving his herd onto winter range. Giff Cheshire was born in 1905 on a homestead in Cheshire, Oregon. His early life was colored by the atmosphere of the Old West that in the first decade of the century had not yet been modified by the automobile. His novels are notable for their complex characters, expert pacing, and authentic backgrounds.
