DUST JACKET INTRODUCTION:
EDITED BY JOE R. LANSDALE
Reading like the hall of fame of American Western writers, here is a rousing anthology of fourteen original short stories that boldly explore new directions and dimensions in Western fiction. With a commitment to traditional settings and themes, but a more modern slant toward characterization and style, THE BEST OF THE WEST offers works as wide-ranging, unpredictable, wild, and unforgettable as the American frontier itself.
Brian Garfield, winner of the Edgar Award and author of Death Wish, contributes "At Yuma Crossing." It is the rugged tale of a man alone in the world: a grizzled and friendless gringo who confronts an orphaned Indian girl, an old Mexican woman, and the anguish of his own loss and loneliness in the Arizona desert. William F. Nolan, author of Logan's Run, presents his action-packed teleplay "The
Nighthawk Rides," a stirring adventure yarn written in the hard-riding, bullet-blazing tradition of Max Brand. And Loren D. Estleman, -winner of the Spur Award for Aces and Eights, offers "The Bandit," the story of an old outlaw whose debt to society is paid in thirty long, hard years of confinement-and a single bitter moment of freedom. . . .
Finely honed and thrillingly told, these are just three of the outstanding tales you'll discover in this unprecedented collection, conceived and produced by the prestigious Western Writers of America.
