Mustang Man
by Louis L’Amour

A contrived short novel told Nolan Sackett about competing groups searching for gold hidden in a box canyon. The hero always takes care to hide his tracks and always gets bushwhacked anyway. The bad guys’ bullets always graze him or miss, but his shots hit his targets. The love interest is a pretty girl who may be treacherous. It is never clear. Her explanation of the shooting of the old man she was traveling with makes no sense. This is the worst of the Sackett novels so far. He rides a mustang, but he is never referred to by the title and it is not relevant.

Year Read: 2004
