New Hope combines three of Ernest Haycox's finest short novels with the interconnected short stories he wrote about New Hope, a freighting town on the Missouri River. "The Roaring Hour" is concerned with Clay Travis, the new town marshal of Buffalo Crossing, and his conflicts with Tom Cilliam, owner of a gambling hall. In "The Kid from River Red" the Kid, in order to be accepted into Dusty Bill's outlaw gang, must kill someone. "The Hour of Fury" is set in the booming gold camp of Dug Gulch and "New Hope" brings together for the first time the stories Haycox wrote about this frontier town in Nebraska Territory. *First Edition Western
