Now published for the first time in hard cover book form is A Man Called Trent as it originally appeared in West magazine. It is one of the finest Western stories L’Amour wrote.
The setting of A Man Called Trent is New Mexico. The story opens to a nester‚ Dick Moffitt‚ dead‚ killed by King Bill Hale’s riders. Sally Crane‚ sixteen and adopted by Moffitt‚ and Moffitt’s fourteen-year-old son Jack witnessed Moffitt’s murder from hiding‚ and then went to a cabin owned by a man named Trent for safety. Trent is actually Lance Kilkenny‚ a gunfighter hoping to leave behind his reputation. King Bill Hale has decided that he wants the graze in the high country for his cattle and to get it he must drive out the nesters. Cub Hale‚ King Bill’s son‚ is a killer who has been running rough-shod ever since he became old enough to carry a gun. Kilkenny joins forces with the other nesters to defeat the powerful rancher.
