9780573703997: Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, The

Journey into the Wild West, 1890 in this classic story of good versus evil, law versus the gun, one man versus Liberty Valance. A tale of love, hope and revenge set against the vicious backdrop of a lawless society.

When a young scholar from New York city travels west in search of a new life he arrives beaten and half-dead on the dusty streets of Twotrees. Rescued from the plains, the town soon becomes his home. A local girl gives him purpose in a broken land, but is it enough to save him from the vicious outlaw who wants him dead? He must make the choice: to turn and run or to stand for what he believes, to live or to fight; to become the man who shot Liberty Valance.

Review:

No one has written with more understanding of the mountain men and white settlers...no one has written with keener perception of the Indians themselves...The people leap into life, unforgettable...This is part of the American heritage. --Jack Schaefer, author of Shane

The best of these tales echo Bret Harte or Mark Twain --Time Magazine

The most brilliant woman Western tale-teller since Mary Austin --New York Journal - American
