There's Always a Trail
Cass Bailey went over the ground with a fine toothed comb and came up without a clue. When the stranger, Handy, offered to track down his stolen money for a stake in the CB range, Bailey had nothing more to lose. But his pretty hot-tempered daughter, Ann, was livid. Certain that Handy couldn't find the money unless he'd had a hand in stealing it.
Handy'd hit paydirt when Miss Bailey burst in to damn him for a liar and a thief, grab the loot and send all his plans to blazes. One minute, he'd found Bailey's money; the next, he faced a shoot-out with the pack of thieving villains who held both Ann and his future hostage - and a challenge to prove he wasn't a thief to the woman he loved.
Home in the Valley
Steve Mehan had done the impossible: driven a herd of cattle from the Nevada range to California in the dead of winter! To the north the passes were blocked with snow, to the south lay miles of trackless and nearly waterless desert. But now the cattle the five ranchers had entrusted to him were safe. And he was back in time to pay off Jake Hitson, the moneylending rancher who'd stop at nothing to get their land.
But Mehan had a little time to rest before Hitson began to gloat. The bank in town had failed - the money was gone. Steve didn't hesitate. He had no choice. Now he'd ride hell-for-leather from Sacramento to Portland - six hundred and forty-five miles - with only one hope in a million. He had to beat the steamer to the Portland bank branch and get the ranchers' money back before the bank got the news.show more
