This was a terrific western novel! Written by David Robbins (under ralph Compton), this novel tells of 4 young cowboys who get into a heap of trouble in Dodge city after a cattle drive. All the characters are different and plenty colorful. David Robbin's writing style has been a great addition for Ralph Compton fans. This is the second one I've read by him, and I can't decide which I love most. I hope he continues to write more westerns.
