I enjoyed this western immensely! The heroine is a 14 year old girl out to avenge her father's murder, and she hires a tough, seasoned old marshall to track the murderer through the mountains. The writing is no-frills and the story fast-paced and interesting. This was a departure in my usual reading, and I am glad I took the chance!! The old John Wayne movie was based on this book.
