Ranger's Trail and Texas Vendetta: Two Complete Novels (Mass Market)
Two complete novels from Elmer Kelton in one low-priced edition
Spring of 1874: Ranger companies are being reorganized and David "Rusty" Shannon is the most sought-after veteran. But he has a new goal: to marry Josie Monahan. He also feels responsibility for Andy Pickard, who he rescued from the Comanche. But tragedy changes Rusty's plans and bent on revenge, he pursues Josie's killer. But the trail he follows may lead him astray.
Young Andy Pickard is in the midst of a bloody vendetta. Pickard and Farley Brackett, a former Confederate soldier, must deliver prisoner Jayce Landon to the sheriff of a neighboring county for killing a man named Ned Hopper. The assignment is complicated, for the Landon and Hopper families are in a blood feud: the Landons to free Jayce, the Hoppers to kill him.
This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.
