The Quick and the DeadLarge Print - 1973
Con Vallian knew the best way to stay out of trouble was to mind his own business. Then he stopped for a cup of coffee at a stranger's campfire and found himself guiding the McKaskels, a family of greenhorn Easterners, across the prairie - fighting a pack of rustlers on one hand and some mighty unpredictable Indians on the other!
Saddle up for a rousing adventure tale by the incomparable Louis L'Amour. The Quick and the Dead tells the story of peaceful folks driven to action under the guidance of a mysterious stranger. It rivals Shane and Pale Rider as one of the best Western stories ever told.
