A Town Called Yellowdog

(Book 23 in the Floating Outfit series)
A novel by

The citizens of Moondog, Texas, stood staring at the small, blond, insignificant cowhand - only he seemed to be the biggest man present, towering over his two companions, and neither of them lacked size. Cold fury worked on Dusty Fog's face as he pointed to the signboard announcing the name of the town.
"My brother came here because you begged for help," he told them. "Danny put his life on the line
and you hadn't the guts to back him. So he died. The name of this town's all wrong and 1 aim to see
it put right. You!" His finger stabbed at the Blue Bull Saloon's bartender. "Take your paint brush and cover over 'Moondog' on that sign. Put 'Yellowdog' in its place. Yellowdog, hombre. That's what your town is - it and everybody in it."
Slowly, his head hanging in shame, the bartender obeyed; for he and every man in the crowd knew that Dusty spoke the bitter truth.

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.
