He could outride and outshoot five men, but he was a fool for a lady in distress. The posse was hot on his trail for murder when he took time out to rescue Sylvie from a gang of desperadoes. It wasn't till she'd bushwhacked him with a shotgun and tried to poison him that he realized she was up to no good. And no sooner he had he shot his way out of her clutches than he met Penelope. After he'd heard her sad story, he should have cut and run, but somehow a Sackett never seem s to learn the easy way.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Reviewer: Henry Cate III (Santa Clara, CA United States)
Louis L'Amour really was a master at his craft. "Mustang Man" is a fairly short book, but it is packed with action and intrigue. There are several groups in the book looking for 300 pounds of gold. The hero, Nolan Sackett, gets caught up in the race when he tries to help a stranded group.
The book starts off with Nolan on the run, he beat a man to the draw, and the man's friends come after Nolan intending to kill him. Nolan has a run in with another man when Nolan needs a fresh horse. A few pages later Nolan comes to help a group, and the group tries to kill him. And the story never slows down.
This is a fairly typical Louis L'Amour, a very well written story. It is a page turner, and is hard to put down. If you enjoy a good western, pick this book up; it is worth reading.
