Description
One of the top twenty-five westerns of all time: an action-packed tale about a range war in a violent town-and the honest foreman who risks his life to keep the peace. Phil Evarts is dead, and the Hatchet Range is up for grabs. That's 70,000 acres of prime turf just waiting for the man rich enough to buy it . . . or the gunman crazy enough to kill for it. Every schemer in town has his eyes on Hatchet, and Bide Mariner leads the charge. An unscrupulous rancher who'll stop at nothing for cash, Mariner has the money and the guns to take whatever he wants. Only Will Ballard stands in his way-and that means Ballard is marked for death. The foreman at Hatchet Range, Ballard is an honest man who'll do anything to keep the ranch from falling into Mariner's hands. In a town so rotten with greed that even the sheriff is against him, Ballard must stand alone to save this little piece of the American West. Voted one of the top twenty-five westerns of all time by the Western Writers of America and made into a 1952 Republic film starring Rod Cameron, Ride the Man Down showcases award-winning author Luke Short at the height of his writing powers.
