Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0843955635, Mass Market Paperback)

"Gun Fog"opens at the tail end of an all-night poker game. Young Jerry Knight, who has just drifted in, finds himself the big loser and signs an agreement to work for the Circle F without compensation for two months. The destitute cowboy has no idea that he is about to become involved in cattle rustling and framed for a murder. "The Red Raider" is the story of murder and mayhem on the open range. Old Dad Flint sets out to revenge the murder of his son and, unfortunately, the confrontation takes place in the desert where the murderer is accompanied by Kicking Horse and his band of renegade Apaches.

(Allan) William Colt MacDonald was born in Detroit, Michigan, in 1891. His career became a long string of successes in pulp magazines, hardcover books, films, and eventually original and reprint paperback editions. The Three Mesquiteers, MacDonald's most famous characters, were introduced in 1933 in Law of the Forty-Fives.
