Joe Hyde’s family had never gotten along real well with the law. First, there was the little matter of Joe’s father being claim-jumped. A rich rustler had been turned loose by the sheriff—even though Joe’s father had the goods on him. That had nearly broken the family. Then Joe’s brother was railroaded for a killing even though he’d been a hundred miles away from the scene of the crime. Now, Marshal Chip Werner was asking Joe to put on a deputy’s badge and hunt down the two men who had shot Lew Ellis, Joe’s friend, in the back. Joe was against it—until Marshal Werner told him the names of the two killers. Then Joe knew he had to find them—and kill them.—Back cover. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Faust, Frederick Schiller

Author Image

Frederick Schiller Faust aka Frank Austin, George Owen Baxter, Walter C Butler, George Challis, Evan Evans, Frederick Faust, John Frederick, Frederick Frost, David Manning, Peter Henry Morland, Max Brand...

Max Brand, one of America's most popular and prolific novelists and author of such enduring works as Destry Rides Again and the Doctor Kildare stories, died on the Italian front in 1944.

“No pulp writer was more prolific than Frederick Faust, who wrote nearly 15 million words under the pen name of Max Brand and seventeen others. He sold all his stories and sometimes wrote complete issues of Western Story Magazine. But Faust's most famous character was not a Western hero but a doctor—Dr. Kildare—who inspired a film of the same name plus fifteen sequels and a television series starring Richard Chamberlain.” (The Incredible Pulps: A Gallery of Fiction Magazine Art, c. 2006, p. 11).
