Hopalong Cassidy is one of the most enduring and popular heroes in frontier fiction. His legendary exploits in books, movies, and on television have blazed a mythic and unforgettable trail across the American West. Now, in the last of four Hopalong Cassidy novels written by Louis L'Amour, the immortal saddleman rides again-this time into a lonely valley of danger and death.
"Our foremost storyteller of the authentic West, LOUIS L'AMOUR has thrilled a nation by chronicling the adventures of the brave men and women who settled the American frontier. There are more than 300 million copies of his books in print around the world."
The unknown L'Amour wrote this 1952 Hopalong Cassidy volume under the nom de plume Tex Burns after Hoppy's creator, Clarence E. Mulford, retired. L'Amour later added several more titles to the series before branching out under his own name.
