"Fiction of the wildest and wooliest kind," said the New York Times when The Untamed was published in 1919. It was the very first western novel by Max Brand, one of the most celebrated and beloved of all western writers.
The mysterious Whistlin' Dan Barry rides a black stallion named Satan, followed by a wolf dog named Black Bart. Dan has his own problems, but they multiply when he encounters Jim Silent and his outlaw gang. Whistlin' Dan has an untamed soul, and his mild eyes take on the yellow glare of a beast when trouble troubles him.

With uncanny abilities, Whistlin' Dan Berry keeps the toughest of situations under control. The protagonist of Brand's first western novel was radically different from earlier, more realistic characters. In 'The Untamed', readers are introduced to the modern conception of the west as a violent world of fairy tale.
