South2ChihuahuaThumb
South To Chihuahua by William L. Hopson
Mexico had become a hotbed of action, and when these men marched south things began to pop that would make history. This was war. This was Revolucion!

A coup had been staged. Assassinations executed. General Francisco “Pancho” Villa was leading the Constitutionalist Army from the north to meet with Emiliano Zapata and his forces from the south to take Mexico back from the usurpers. Ed Lash had ridden with Pancho Villa before and, against his will, he was back to ride with him again.

Two men wanted to kill Ed Lash but the dreaded Mexican Rurales would probably kill him first. Lash was caught in a blood feud with one man because he killed his brother. He was caught in a love triangle with another man over a woman he hated.

Two private wars in the middle of Pancho Villa’s campaign to conquer northern Mexico during the Mexican Revolution. And Ed Lash was right in the middle of it all.
gunmenOfGloryThumb
Gunmen of Glory by Clarence E. Mulford
Gunmen they were—nemesis of the lawless—and they flamed the fastest six-guns an outlaw rendezvous ever saw.

When The Kid, sick and desperate, stumbles upon Hopalong Cassidy and tells him the gruesome story of his wife’s murder by Big Henry’s outlaw gang, Hopalong un-limbers his six-shooter and sets out to clean things up. Tex Ewalt and Johnny Nelson come along. The story of their raid on the bandits of Hell’s Centre is one of old Hopalong’s most daring and rapid-fire adventures.

Gunmen of Glory is a full length novel of twenty six chapters.
