A STORY OF THE OUTDOOR WEST

BY

WILLIAM MACLEOD RAINE

Author of “Ridgeway of Montana,” “A Daughter of Raasay,” Etc.

* * * * *

In this vivid story the author has captured the breezy charm of “Cattleland,” and brings to us the turbid life of the frontier with all its engaging dash and vigor.  It is the kind of book one reads at a sitting far into the night.

A young woman, fresh from the conventional East, drives her motor car into an absorbing adventure which is the first of a series of dramatic events that tread upon each other’s heels and grow more intense and thrilling from page to page.

The gallant vagabond, Ned Bannister, who enthralls the heroine’s fancy, against her will, is reputed to be a lawless desperado of the worst type.  Yet the reader joins with the wholly delightful young heroine in yielding him full sympathy.  How the mystery is solved to the satisfaction of all is one of the pleasures that must be reserved for a reading.

The characters each and all are drawn with masterly vigor and help forward the swift movement of the plot.

12mo.  Illustrated.  Cloth bound, $1.50.

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT

RIDGWAY OF MONTANA

BY WILLIAM MACLEOD RAINE

* * * * *

“To-day I had it out with ‘Ridgway.’  I opened the book and I did not lay it down till I had raced eagerly through it.  I find it a story with many elements of power in its treatment of plot and personality.  The men are all well-marked types.  The women are all possible and pleasant beings.  The story gives dramatically the inner life of a mining camp.  The atmosphere of wild nature and primeval human passion is well sustained.  The exuberance of detail and suggestion, the easy drawing of character, the fine massing of effects, all show a strength and fire in the author which ought to give us a line of good books from his pen in the coming days.”

—­EDWIN MARKHAM, in The New York American.
