The Baron of Coyote River
Lance Gordon’s running out of room and time. Back in the Sierras he killed the man who murdered his father. Unfortunately that man turned out to be a Deputy Marshal, and now Lance has a price on his head. Like Alan Ladd as Shane, Lance wants only to live in peace, but he’ll have to go through hell to get there.
Running from the law and the cavalry, Lance heads for the one place no sheriff or soldier will go—into the territory ruled by The Baron of Coyote River. The Baron is the king of the cattle rustlers—as feared and hated as he is powerful. No one dares take him on . . . until now.
Lance is sick of running, and taking on the Baron is his last chance for a second chance. Before the battle is over, Coyote River will run red with blood, as Lance has vowed to redeem himself . . . or die trying.
Hubbard often reminisced about his rough and tumble childhood in Montana. “At the age of three-and-a-half I could ride quite well. . . . They never let me ride any blooded stock; they always insisted that I only ride range broncs and mustangs. It did not matter how often I was thrown when a mustang exploded under me, it was I who was always scolded and cautioned not to be mean to the horses.” Memories such as this remind us that Hubbard himself inhabited the world of The Baron of Coyote River.
Also includes the Western adventure, Reign of the Gila Monster, in which a stranger rides into the roughest, toughest town in the West—and sets out to show the town who’s boss.
"Take a hard ride into a lawless corner of the Arizona territory, as the audio version of The Baron of Coyote River brings a stampede of action to life.

This is one of my favorites from L. Ron Hubbard. A great many of the golden age reprints from Galaxy Press are westerns and Hubbard was so skilled at creating likeable characters and fast action ... Read full review
