Description


Hearts of the West is a unique collection of classic Western tales that combine action and romance. This anthology showcases nine stirring, long-forgotten frontier tales with appeal to both men and women. So here are nine classic ranchland romances--a unique collection of nine classic frontier stories that combine action and romance. In "Guardian Angel," a cowboy who doesn't think he needs anyone's help, and a woman who thinks he does, must deal with the treachery and cunning of a criminal family. In "Frontier Spirit," a well-bred society girl proves she's got that very quality to a doubting cowboy, but not until they have both faced bandit guns. In "Pioneer Woman" by John and Ward Hawkins (latterly stalwarts of television's Bonanza and Little House on the Prairie), a woman and frontiersman discover that their greatest peril on a wagon train west is not the hardships of the trail but her abusive, murderous husband. In "Cup of Happiness," a woman determined to succeed on her own in the far northwest and a man keeping a secret, must battle nature, epidemic and claim-jumpers if they are to live and quaff their own cup of happiness. In "Big Nose Kate's Man," the famous, if slightly shady, lady shows why she's earned her own place in frontier legend when her lover, the legendary Doc Holliday, faces a lynching (based on an actual event). Plus other irresistable tales. If you enjoy the romance and action of the old frontier days, you'll love Hearts of the West.
