Farrington Elwell, shows cowboy on rushing horse swinging lariat; also action-frontispiece in full color and five more inserted full color plates, one shows cowboys on horseback trying to lasso an angry bear. As one of the characters remarks, "If you follow the Trail you should do your sleeping in the Wintertime." A great classic of Western literature, set in 1882; along the cattle drive we see law-strict Dodge City in contrast with anything-goes Ogallala, what would really happen in an encounter with a gang of cattle rustlers, with beauty and realism the hallmark of every chapter.

A serious, severe and adult animal adventure that is a cross between Jack London's White Fang and the nature fictions of Charles G. D. Roberts. Black Buck, a huge labradore retriever whose master was killed in the wilderness, had himself taken a bullet in the nose but refused to die. His loss of a sense of smell caused his canine brain to hone itself with a high degree of cleverness to overcome his handicap. His adventures with 'the blonde she... a young timber-wolf as large and as lithe as a small woman" and fighting such enemies as wolf rivals, coyotes, a stalking cougar and bears of the Yachats region of the Pacific Northwest. When Buck meets a lawman, Scott, his connection with humanity is reestablished -- and though at first Buck the enormous white dog is one of the suspects because the murdered man was mutilated by the teeth of hungry animals -- the lawman's own life is saved by Buck and they both set out to solve the murder. A great wilderness adventure and a great dog story into one.
