Under the Burning Sun: Western Stories
Western Described by Bill Pronzini as a poet of the Western shadowland, DeRosso s characters are usually gunslicks, bounty hunters, drifters, hard-scrabble ranchers, and outlaws who are lonely and disillusioned neither all good nor all bad. In The Bounty Hunter, Spurr is duped by scalp hunters into believing that he has killed his own son. Fifteen years later, when he learns the truth, he becomes obsessed with revenge. This and other stories by H. A. DeRosso, each of them powerful and spellbinding have been gathered for the first time by Bill Pronzini. *First Edition Western
