There will be blood...
Three years ago Pat O'Hara went to jail for robbing a bank, taking the fall to protect his twin brother Mick and his family.
After saving the life of a guard, Pat finds himself on parole but when he returns home, it's not to the welcome he expected.
His brother has been murdered, leaving their mother to care for the homestead and Mick's young son all alone.
The land is also suffering from drought, causing ranchers, such as the Conneleys and Bowens, to take their cattle to graze in piñon country.
Believing one or both of the families to have been involved in his brother's murder, Pat takes on the job of guide and gun-boss of a sheep-outfit run by Jessica McShane, also bound for that area.
Why was his brother murdered?
Was it the result of a bank job gone wrong?
Or perhaps solving the mystery of his brother's death, will also solve the problem of the missing cattle?
With bullets flying, will Pat find the answers he's looking for?
Or will he be just ...

"The Log of a Cowboy" is an account of a five-month drive of 3,000 cattle from Brownsville, Texas, to Montana during 1882 along the Great Western Cattle Trail.

The Chicago Herald has said: "As a narrative of cowboy life, Andy Adams' book is clearly the real thing. It carries its own certificate of authentic first-hand experience on every page." This edition also includes Adams other famous western novels like The Outlet, A Texas Matchmaker, Reed Anthony, Cowman and The Wells Brothers.

Hopalong Cassidy is a cowboy hero created by the author Clarence Mulford, who wrote a series of popular short stories and many novels based on the character. In his early writings, Mulford portrayed the character as rude, dangerous, and rough-talking. He had a wooden leg which caused him to walk with a little "hop", hence the nickname. The character -- as played by movie actor William Boyd in films adapted from Mulford's books -- was transformed into a clean-cut, sarsaparilla-drinking hero. Sixty-six popular films appeared.
