Dorothy M Johnson wrote dozens of highly acclaimed western stories and books in her long career. The stories in this book are her very best. They were ranked as four of the top five stories of the 20th century by the Western Writers of America, with The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance as number one. That story plus A Man Called Horse and The Hanging Tree became major Hollywood films. This is the first time Johnson's famous stories have been published together in one book.
