Last Stand at Saber River and the Law at Randado: Two Classic Westerns
Two Classic Westerns
From New York Times Bestselling Author Elmore Leonard come two of his early, beloved westerns–now collected in one volume
LAST STAND AT SABER RIVER
A quiet, haunted man, Paul Cable walked away from a lost cause hoping to pick up where he left off, but things have changed in Arizona since he first rode out to fight for the Confederacy. Two brothers—Union men—have claimed his spread, and they’re not about to give it back, leaving Cable and his family with no place to settle in peace. It seems that this war is not over yet. But no one is going to take away Paul’s land and his future—not with their laws, their lies, or their guns.
THE LAW AT RANDADO
Phil Sundeen thinks Deputy Sheriff Kirby Frye is just a local kid with a tin badge. And when the cattle baron’s men drag two prisoners from Frye’s jail and hang them from a high tree, there’s nothing the untried young lawman can do about it. But Kirby’s got more grit than Sundeen and his hired muscles bargained for. They can beat the boy and humiliate him, but they can’t make him forget the job he has sworn to do. The cattleman has money and guns on his side, but Kirby Frye’s the law in this corner of Arizona. And he’ll drag Sundeen and his killers straight to hell to prove it.
