Overview

Now published for the first time in standard print book form anywhere is Rider of Lost Creek as originally published in West magazine in 1947.

Mort Davis once saved Lance Kilkenny’s life after he was shot up and now Davis has sent out word that he needs Kilkenny’s help. Kilkenny has the reputation of being the fastest gun in the West‚ but if involved in a gunfight‚ he leaves the area. Very little is known about him‚ even what he looks like.

Davis has filed a claim on a water hole near Lost Creek in a district dominated by two wealthy cattlemen‚ Webb Steele and Chet Lord‚ and both are at loggerheads‚ each one claiming for himself the water hole that Davis occupies.

Kilkenny enters the fracas‚ and then works to get Steele and Lord to realize that they are pawns in a bigger game.

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contemporary writers; a few are serials from magazine publications of many years ago, and -- occasionally -- we find an unpublished manuscript from some of the classic Western writers of a bygone era.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.
