A cow hunter's lament and other stories : a western collection / Larry D. Sweazy.

Sweazy, Larry D., (author.).

Award-winning novelist Larry D. Sweazy's first published short story collection features eleven western stories, including a new short story, "A Cow Hunters Lament." Three of the stories, "Rattlesnakes and Skunks," "Lost Mountain Pass," and "Shadow of the Crow," are origin stories for Sweazys series characters Josiah Wolfe, Trusty Dawson, and Sonny Burton. The stories are traditional westerns with a few that have underlying mysteries, as well as two that have supernatural elements, all written in Sweazy's signature atmospheric style. All of the stories feature western characters challenged by the landscape and loneliness they exist in, overcoming adversity, with a respect for history, along with plenty of expected action.
