A tale of the West, a story of the Wild; of three strange comrades,--Whistling Dan of the untamed soul, within whose mild eyes there lurks the baleful yellow glare of beast anger; of the mighty black stallion Satan, King of the Ranges, and the wolf devil dog, to whom their master's word is the only law,--and of the Girl.

Brand's career as an author of Westerns began with this tale set in an otherworldly Wild West, which first appeared as a serial in All-Story magazine and was soon transformed into a film starring Tom Mix.

"I couldn't move. I was weak with horror. It wasn't a struggle between a man


Average Rating of 3 from 1 reviews: ***

From the start, this Western concentrated a bit too much on the bad boys, with the nearly insane one being the star of the series. Too unnatural, too pulpy, but certainly good for wasting your time, if you like aggressive Western.
