Summary "This collection contains many of Giff Cheshire's best stories, all bearing the distinctive stamp of authentic and colorfully portrayed background, vivid characters, and gripping drama. "The Bad Year" and "Man Breaker" are moving tales of the hardships faced by small back-country ranchers. "The Road to Jericho" is a variation on the theme of a wagon train plagued by Indians, and "Stagecoach Pass" is an elemental account of a driver's struggles to save his passengers when his coach is caught in a blizzard. In "A Mug at Charley's," a retired steamboat fireman and engineer makes the most of his last chance to fulfill a lifelong dream. And "Whistle on the River," one of Cheshire's best, tells of steamboat builders on the Columbia. Many more stories round out this rich, diverse cross-section of frontier life."-- Provided by publisher.
