One More Hill to Hell concerns Dan Grimshaw‚ who rides for Caine Pomeroy. Pomeroy’s Kingpin Ranch is in the process of ruthless expansion. Melissa Olmstead‚ an attractive widow‚ has been holding out against Kingpin’s eviction notice to her. Grimshaw‚ at the risk of his own life‚ breaks ranks and makes one last effort to get Melissa to give in. When again she refuses‚ Grimshaw is confronted with a moral dilemma‚ one that could put him in as much jeopardy as she is.

In Against the Law Marshal Mark Kennicott has kept the town of Cameo Crossing peaceful. He shoots Billy Ringo in a saloon when he believes Ringo has a hide-out gun. Although no hide-out is found on Ringo‚ the town council demands that Kennicott resign. But if Kennicott does quit‚ the entire town will once more be at the mercy of lawlessness.

Five Star First Edition Westerns Standing Order Plan

Five Star Westerns are standard print, first editions from top Western writers. The majority are brand new manuscripts from the best contemporary writers; a few are serials from magazine publications of many years ago, and -- occasionally -- we find an unpublished manuscript from some of the classic Western writers of a bygone era. Five Star consistently brings you the best quality writing the genre has to offer. Five Star Western authors have won numerous awards including the National Cowboy Hall of Fame's Western Heritage Award, Levi Strauss' Golden Saddleman Award, the Spur Award from Western Writers of America and many regional awards as well. The Western genre is not dead! The Western story is the American story. There's a morality and a certain nobility in Westerns, not consistently found in other genres. Westerns are much more than guns and horses. Strong characters and a strong sense of place and time characterize all our Five Star Western titles. Five Star publishes the best Westerns available today by the top writers of both the present and past. All are published in our durable library edition hardcover format. Actual covers may be different from those shown.


"UNDER EMBARGO UNITIL MARCH 15, 2013 “The late Hogan’s novel Against the Law is bound here with a fine short story, “One More Hill to Hell,” about an aimless, morose cowpuncher who stands up against a range hog in defense of a widow. A smooth, gratifying morality tale.” - Booklist, March 15, 2013"
