(1983)
(The sixth book in the Calamity Jane series)
A novel by

 
 
Everyone in Tennyson wanted their town to look really good ... Reconstruction was ending and a new Governor was taking over ... respectability and affluence were the order of the day!
Then, to Tennyson's alarm, they learned the Hide and Horn Saloon had changed hands. There was nothing wrong with the new owner, a hard shooting, hard punching lady called Madame Bulldog who looked as though she could run the whole show with one hand. The trouble came with the family of the previous owner - they wanted the saloon back - anyway they could get it ...
And suddenly, at the worst possible time, the folk of Tennyson found they had a war on their hands ... and the prize was THE HIDE AND HORN SALOON...

J.T. Edson was a former British Army dog-handler who wrote more than 130 Western novels, accounting for some 27 million sales in paperback. Edson's works - produced on a word processor in an Edwardian semi at Melton Mowbray - contain clear, crisp action in the traditions of B-movies and Western television series. What they lack in psychological depth is made up for by at least twelve good fights per volume. Each portrays a vivid, idealized "West That Never Was", at a pace that rarely slackens.
