When you live the sort of life I do--the life of a hired gun--you start to figure you can handle any tough hand who comes along. But the tough hand I had to drill right between the eyes just happened to be a Flynn. And even though it was self-defense, there's no way his pa and the rest of the clan wouldn't come after me.

Wayne D. Overholser: Wayne D. Overholser (1906 1996) won three Spur Awards from the Western Writesrs of America and has a long list of fine Western titles to his credit. Buckaroo’s Code was his first Western novel and remains one of his best. His stores are based on a solid knowledge of the history and customs of the nineteenth-century West, particularly when set in his two favorite Western states, Oregon and Colorado.
Overholser, who died in 1996, was a prolific writer of western fiction, both under his own name and under a variety of pseudonyms. This offering features a hired gun who, after a close scrape (he was almost gunned down by a band of renegades), tries to settle down at a Wyoming ranch. But he finds that the course of peaceful retirement, not to mention true love, doesn't exactly run smooth. Beginning in the late 1870s and covering a couple of decades, the story works a familiar but ever-resonant western theme: simple values made complicated by a rapidly modernizing world. David Pitt
