All manner of folks journeyed West - swift and slow, young and old, town and country, straight and crooked. In those days the greenest greenhorn on a cattle ranch was usually a fresh-faced kid who had drifted West, a "maverick" cut loose from kin for one reason or another. On the Circle L Ranch that autumn the ramrod hired such a kid to work as wrangler by day and night hawk after sundown. That scrawny kid booted off the train in Coalton was not so much lean and mean as he was just plain skin and bones. The kid was wound as tightly as a watch spring, and anyone who rode with him in those days will not soon forget him. The kid may have had a given name - some suspect him of being a criminal - but at the Circle L Ranch he is given the name "night hawk" and it sticks. Night Hawk is certain to join that select company as one of his best, a story filled with drama, tension, and excitement

Search for the Fox by Stephen Overholser( Book )

1865--the year that Confederate war hero General John Fox, still in uniform and making no attempt to cover his well-known face, rode into Richmond and robbed the Atlantic Bank and Trust. Then, fleeing South and leaving his wife and infant son behind, the "Fox" became of the West's most notorious and feared outlaws. But behind the cryptic accounts of these events lies a bizarre and puzzling story-- a mystery whose tale is told here in this action-packed Western about a rebel without a cause, and a seventeen-year-old youth intent on finding his elusive heritage. When young Benjamin Fox set out from Richmond in the summer of 1882, the search he faced would lead him through some of the West's wildest territory: a silver bonanza in Colorado, muleskinners and mountain men, road agents, a hardbitten mining life, merciless lawmen. But nothing had ever prepared Benjamin for the ways and wiles of ruthless bounty hunters. Nor did Benjamin figure that one day their desperate schemes would bring him face to face with the truth about the Fox-- and himself -- Book jacket
