Description

Valley of the Sun tells the stories of those American heroes whose lives have become the stuff of legend. In these tales, cattlemen ride alone across the open range under the blistering heat of the sun and the deadly aim of roving desperadoes. Gamblers stake their fortunes and their lives on a deck of cards and Lady Luck. Strong-willed senoritas seek independence through an enticing combination of beauty, audacity, and spirit. Lawmen and outlaws walk the same dusty streets, sit in saloons drinking the same whiskey, and speak a common language: Colt, Winchester, Smith & Wesson. Gritty, tough, and unfailingly authentic, here is the West as it really was: a land where for every friend there is an enemy, for every handshake a fist, for every dispute a resolution - usually in an explosive showdown of blood and bullets.show more
