Description

New Hope combines three of Ernest Haycox's finest short novels with the interconnected short stories he wrote about New Hope, a freighting town on the Missouri River. In The Roaring Hour, Clay Travis, the new town marshal of Buffalo Crossing, and his fiancee, Gail, are up against the combined forces of the gambling hall owner, the sheriff controlled by him, and the local outlaw leader. A young upstart holds up a stagecoach in The Kid From River Red to prove his manhood and impress an outlaw leader. But when he meets Dusty Bill, he finds out the price of the outlaw's acceptance is much higher. The Hour of Fury is set in the booming gold camp of Dug Gulch, where Dane Starr has come to lose his identity as a gunfighter and instead finds himself at the centre of a dangerous power struggle.show more
