Description

Eighteen-year-old Lee Thompson has a chip on his shoulder and a mission in his heart to save his dad, an aging sheriff who's lost control of his town.
Old Diehard's lost control of his town, and it seems every outcast and outlaw west of the Mississippi is on the prowl in Wolf River, Montana. Now Lee's come all the way from Texas to stand up for his father, a man who hasn't seen him since he was a boy and who doesn't know him from Adam.
Lee's plan is a dangerous one-mix in with the desperadoes and risk death at their hand Under the Diehard Brand. But sometimes, the only way to restore the rule of law is to break it.
Also includes the Western adventures, "Hoss Tamer," in which a circus horse trainer turned bronco buster has to figure a way to tame a gang of outlaws; and "The Ghost Town Gun-Ghost," the story of an old prospector who seems to have lost his wits; but is he crazy ... or crazy like a fox?
"Rife with action and adventure and laced with melodramatic undertones." --Library Journal

Review quote

"Galaxy Press has reprinted four inexpensive anthologies of classic pulp tales of two-fisted action by legendarily popular writer (and Scientology religion founder) L. Ron Hubbard which are sure to satisfy avid readers of the pulp fiction action/adventure genre.... Under the Diehard Brand is a western about a young Lee Thompson, whose aging sheriff father is losing control over the thugs and troublemakers of Wolf River. Thompson must step into his father's shoes and defend his town from the horde of criminals who have heard rumors of his father's infirmary and see Wolf River as easy prey! Also present are the stories 'Hoss Tamer, ' 'The Ghost Town Gun-Ghost, ' and a story preview of Baron of Coyote River. ...Each action-packed volume of Stories from the Golden Age is further enhanced with a glossary of regional terms, dialects and that have fallen into disuse, and other words that may be esoteric to the casual reader. All are excellent picks for anyone who loves pulp fiction." --Midwest Book Review
