In Max Brand's "Over the Northern Border," Jack Trainor learns that a posse is on its way to arrest his brother-in-law for a stage robbery and decides to make himself a decoy for his sister's sake. His plan is to lead the law on a chase until he crosses into Mexico. When that plan fails, he heads north. The posse won't get him, but the Canadian wilderness might. In "Riders of the Dawn" by Louis L'Amour, we meet Matt Sabre. He's a drifter, a veteran of foreign wars, and he's seeking his fortune out West.
