Book Excerpt: 
. . .If he had been by nature the bully and the ruffian there would have been no point in all that followed, but the heart of Jerry Strann was ordinarily as warm as the yellow sunshine itself; and it was a common saying in the Three B's that Jerry Strann would take from a child what he would not endure from a mountain-lion. Women loved Jerry Strann, and children would crowd about his knees, but this day the small demon was in him.

"You want to be moving along" mimicked the devil in Jerry Strann. "Well, you wait a while. I ain't through with you yet. Maybe—" he paused and searched his mind. "You've given me a fall, and maybe you can give the rest of us—a laugh!"

The chuckle of appreciation went up the bar and down it again.

"I want to ask you," went on the devil in Jerry Strann, "where you got your hoss?"

"He was running wild," came the gentle answer. "So I took a walk, one day,. . . Read More

I liked it, but it was not as good as "Untamed". A little slow at times.
I plan on reading the other 2 in the Dan Barry series.

It was way too wordy and boody. The character of Dan Barry was just weird. Was he supposed to be walking around in a daze? What was I supposed to feel for him? I have the impression of a character like Don Knotts who everyone loves and fears.

#2 in the Man, a horse and a dog. Good read.

Don't remember what attracted me to Max Brand save that he is another author of stories of the American West. The book in question imbues the reader with a sense of foreboding and unknown menace heightened by the fact that it is left undefined as the book begins. As much psychological thriller as...more

This was a really unusual western. It's an old book I bought at the Wallowa library sale. It was written in 1920. I liked it but it sure wasn't what I was expecting. I think the night horseman was "death". The book reminded me a lot of the Brad Pitt movie, "Meet Joe Black". I would love to discus...more

"The story of a man, a horse, and a dog. What is the story?"

Not the one you might expect from such an early Western, that's for sure. Nor are the man, the horse, or the dog exactly as you would expect. The man is more animal than man, the horse more human than horse, the dog more wolf than dog.

This book started with a lot of what I call flowery language meaning words that are mostly fancy, (insouciance) being one of them, and I was considering not finishing the book but I did. I did enjoy the book as obvious in my rating because it did have a lot of classic western action. Someone else...more

Like we say in France "it does not break three leg to a duck"....th story drowned itself after a while. nothing really happened and the end...guess I was already sleeping like a log at the time I was reading those last pages...or felt like I was
So I won't try it again except if I'm plagued by ins...more

This is a generous three. The book reads often like it should have went a supernatural route (werewolves and spectres), but that is not Max Brands, but as written this book drew tedious at time, and the action was sorely limited too.
