The Drifting KidLarge Print - 2019
"The Kid wasn't quite sixteen, but he had led the hard kind of range life that makes a boy grow up fast. Even though the Kid could see trouble sticking out of Chalk Daggett like the spines on a poison cactus, he was happy at the Flat Iron Range. With cowboy Grady Roberts for his idol, and with Big Elmer the cook for a friend, life was happier than ever before. But not for long. Big Elmer was shot, and although the Kid got away, he knew Daggett would get him next. It was a long time before the Kid made his way back to the range because of 16-carat phony by the name of Isaiah Smith convinced him that he was in trouble with the law. Then the Kid finally got back to Wyoming, he met Grady again at the Quarter Moon Ranch. He met Daggett, too, and meeting Daggett meant meeting up with more violence. For a while it looked as if Daggett might throw all the trouble he had caused in the Kid's lap, but with Grady to help him, the Kid at last figured out a way to pluck the thorns out of the killer's cactus character."--Back cover.
