Home in the Valley
Steve Mehan had done the impossible when he drove a herd of cattle from the Nevada range to California in the dead of winter. But Mehan had little time to rest before tragedy struck. The bank that held the cash had failed--the payment was gone. Steve didn't hesitate. Now he'd have to ride hell-for-leather from Sacramento, California, to Portland, Oregon, with only one hope in a million. He had to beat the steamer to the Portland branch and withdraw the randers' money before the back got the news.
It had been many years since Lona Markham's father sent her from the rigors of ranch life to a convent school. Now she's returned to a wary, careworn man who hardly seems like the father she remembers. The ranch she's set to inherit someday is shadowed by brutish Frank Mailer, the man Lona's promised to marry--and haunted by the mysterious Black Rider, who watches the Blue Hill Ranch from a distance. Some say the Rider is a ghost, but all Lona knows is his presence makes both Poke Markham and Frank Mailer uneasy.
Then one day the enigmatic stranger reveals himself to Lona. Lance Kilkenny has ridden to this rugged country to repay an old debt to Lona's father. When he exposes a cold and daring scheme to cheat her of the Blue Hill Ranch, Lona Markham is plunged into terrible danger. But Kilkenny has a cool head and a fast gun hand...
There's Always a Trail
Cass Bailey went over the ground with a fine toothed comb and came up without a clue. When the stranger, Handy, offered to track down his stolen money for a stake in the CB range, Bailey had nothing more to lose. But his pretty hot-tempered daughter, Ann, was livid. Certain that Handy couldn't find the money unless he'd had a hand in stealing it.
Handy'd hit paydirt when Miss Bailey burst in to damn him for a liar and a thief, grab the loot and send all his plans to blazes. One minute, he'd found Bailey's money; the next, he faced a shoot-out with the pack of thieving villains who held both Ann and his future hostage - and a challenge to prove he wasn't a thief to the woman he loved.
Home in the Valley
Steve Mehan had done the impossible: driven a herd of cattle from the Nevada range to California in the dead of winter To the north the passes were blocked with snow, to the south lay miles of trackless and nearly waterless desert. But now the cattle the five ranchers had entrusted to him were safe. And he was back in time to pay off Jake Hitson, the moneylending rancher who'd stop at nothing to get their land.
But Mehan had a little time to rest before Hitson began to gloat. The bank in town had failed - the money was gone. Steve didn't hesitate. He had no choice. Now he'd ride hell-for-leather from Sacramento to Portland - six hundred and forty-five miles - with only one hope in a million. He had to beat the steamer to the Portland bank branch and get the ranchers' money back before the bank got the news.
