Captain Slocum was Don Grier’s protector. He sent for John the Swede. “Don’s going on a long trip,” the captain said, “and you’re going with him. The boy is soft. He knows little about horses and guns, and will have to know a great deal to face the ordeal at the end of the journey. You will be his schoolmaster. You will teach him how to go hungry and thirsty, how to ride day and night. Above all, you will teach him how to shoot and find his target. Do you hear me?”

“I hear you,” said John sullenly. “But what power’ll I have to make the brat do exactly what I tell him to do?”

“You have power,” said the captain, “to beat him until the bruises reach the bone. You have power to leave him in the middle of the desert if he won’t understand and obey you.” The captain went on, “He enters the ride, a boy. On the other end, I expect you to have made him a man.”—Introduction. [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).
