Abruptly Mac got up and disappeared in the night, muttering something about looking after the horses. His partner understood well enough what was the matter. The redheaded puncher was in a stress of emotion, and like the boy he was he did not want Curly to know it.

****.

This was a great book. It is awesome to see big tough western men showing compassion for a young kid who strayed a bit. If you are a fan of L'Amour you should enjoy this book.
