Max Brand is a vivid and entertaining writer. His view of the Old West, however romantic, is extremly believable. Motivations are fairly black and white though his characters are actually quite complicated and compelling. He is especially adept a descriptions: of the bleak vastness of the high desert, of the men, women and beasts that inhabit it. Given that this book was written at the end of the Old West (ca. 1919 I think), it's amazing to see how some of the plots and storylines from this book have consistently reappeared over the years in movies, books and television. In this respect Brand seems to have been a progenitor and one of the originators of these tropes.
