by Louis L’Amour

A good western. Told by Orlando Sackett. He travels with a tinker from his home in Tennessee to Mexico and discovers his father, who has found pirate treasure. He gets revenge against one man by beating him in a prize fight and against another by blackmailing him into ceding stolen property back to its rightful owners. It is a page turner more for the humorous dialog than for the action. The title is appropriate.

Year Read: 2004
