Trigger Gospel, Drago, Harry Sinclair
1 Drago, Harry Sinclair Trigger Gospel
New York Popular Library 1935 Reprint Edition Trade Paperback Good 


128 pp. A vintage western originally published by The Macauley Company and here reprinted by Popular Library as part of the Thrilling Novels series - No ANC 21.

"Bill Stillings looked hungrily at Martha Southard. He wanted her so much it hurt. But when he stared at the band of horseman galloping toward him he knew he was going to lose her and everything else that mattered. It was a posse with Beaudry, crooked sheriff of Bowie, in the lead. They were coming after him on a faked charge and they weren't interested in taking him alive. Black bitterness filled his heart. Should he stay and fight the posse? Or should he head for the Cherokee Strip, where even US marshals feared to ride, and hunt down the ambusher who killed his father? Stillings really had no choice. So he fled to the Strip even though it meant giving up Martha and brought him into conflict with Smoke Sontag's owlhooters!"; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall

How Curry became involved despite himself in a dangerous triangle, and how he prepared to sacrifice his own life for an Indian girl makes a spine-tingling tale set against a background of Arizona desert color and Navajo life."; Ex-Library; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall

From the dustjacket: "Here at last is the great romance of the American Indian - revealing in the swift march of its events the tragedy and the glory of a whole race, and the true essence of the West, as only Zane Grey can express it. It is the romance of Nophaie, the young Nopah warrior, cursed with the strange and conflicting heritage of a white man's education and the fierce soul of an Indian. How Marian Warner, golden-haired, fascinating, came from the East to the bleak tablelands of the great Western reservation, and how she shared with Nophaie his struggles in behalf of his people, make a story more enthralling than any Zane Grey has before written."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall

Author of the Matt Helm series, Donald Hamilton here turns his attention to the American Old West.
"When Alexander Burdick headed into New Mexico Territory, he was trying to make a fresh start, but Burdick was a man trouble couldn't leave alone. In Santa Clara it came in the shape of Dan Justice, the rich and arrogant cattle rancher who ruled the valley. He shot first and asked questions later.
"Burdick was the first man to stand up to Justice - and live to talk about it. The townfolk called him their savior, but Burdick was no man's hero - and no man's fool. He made his own decisions every step of the way, even if it meant facing down a lynch mob alone and unguarded, with only his two-shoot gun."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall

Breakheart Pass, MacLean, Alistair
12 MacLean, Alistair Breakheart Pass
Garden City, NY Doubleday & Company 1974 Book Club (BCE/BOMC) Hardcover Very Good in Good+ dust jacket 


Spine a bit slanted, corners bumped, minor edge wear esp. to top and base of spine. Sparkly brown cloth boards. Jacket shows moderate edge wear with several small tears at top and base of spine, a little darkening. A nice copy.

In "Breakheart Pass" Alistair Maclean takes on the American Old West -- and takes no prisoners in taming it. If you have seen the old television program "The Wild, Wild West" this book bears some broad similarities (or vice versa). Moving from the frigid wastes of the Arctic to the blizzard shrouded mountains of the West, MacLean delivers action and suspense that will keep you glued to the pages.
John Deakin, United States Secret Service, is the epitome of the modern British secret agent. He is tough on the outside, ruthless towards his enemies, but soft on the inside. Held prisoner on a train heading towards a rendezvous with a band of renegade Indians, every man's hand turned against him, he must somehow thwart the carefully laid plans of a corrupt territorial governor and his henchmen. At stake is not just the prospect of having those Indians armed with the most modern of repeating rifles, but a huge shipment of gold headed east from the California mine. Not to mention rescuing the cavalry and saving the governor's innocent niece. The prospects seem bleak, to say the least. . . .; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
