The West We Believed

For some reason I haven't completely figured out, I do not like this collection of short stories as much as I did the one titled, Hard Ride. The stories compiled here all date from the same time period, the 1950's, and are in the same western short story magazines which were so prevalent during that time period. There are "modern" stories about rodeos; and stories of tragedy; and ranch life in general with characters we have all met even in real life. The blurb on the back of the book lists several story outlines: "a young veteran who overcomes PTSD to fight a town fire; a former sheriff who continues to chase bandits; and a frontier housewife who protects her home from dangerous criminals; a rancher and his wife who protect their adopted son from his abusive real father when he returns, and two women whose argument over a man leads to a no-holds barred rodeo barrel race." So you see there is a wide variety of plot lines in this book. I do think there is something for every lover of western stories to find here.
