    This book is one of my top five favorite westerns, and it s in my top five favorite humorous books as well It won the 1966 Spur Award for Best Western Novel of the Year, but you never hear about it, which bewilders me All I can figure is that Purdum didn t write enough books to get noticed maybe most Western readers stick to their favorite authors or series, while Purdum only ever published two books People are certainly reading other westerns this old and older my library s got plenty of This book is one of my top five favorite westerns, and it s in my top five favorite humorous books as well It won the 1966 Spur Award for Best Western Novel of the Year, but you never hear about it, which bewilders me All I can figure is that Purdum didn t write enough books to get noticed maybe most Western readers stick to their favorite authors or series, while Purdum only ever published two books People are certainly reading other westerns this old and older my library s got plenty of Max Brand and Zane Grey, anyhow.Most of Purdum s career he was writing for radio or TV The Cisco Kid,Gunsmoke, The Lone Ranger, Broken Arrow, Rawhide, Death Valley Days and the like and I suspect some of the flaws of the book go back to that, but OTOH it is a rollicking ride and he has a real way with words and phrasing and characterization The man could tell a story, that s all I ve got to say, and over the years I have read my copy of the book to death Purdum s perfectly willing to toss in a pratfall now and again, but most of the humor is based on character and word play, while there s plenty of action when he s not making me laugh, and for me, no matter how tattered and torn, this book just never gets old
