Lost Western

grandad_rufus

All I can remember is that at one point the main character was returning to visit his parents, and had a run in with bushwackers, he killed them and burried the loot they had. He got his father to help him dig it up when they headed past later. Father made a comment about selling the farm, even though he never owned the land in the first place (May be two different stories)

Anyone help with this one ?

I can think of a story where the father sold the farm even though the land did not belong to him, that is a minor sub-plot of http://storiesonline.net/s/44905/wagons-ho (Lazlong).
No idea about the first half of your question.

I will re-read that next, as I ah pretty certain the bushwacker incident is just prior to the main family leaving

Thanks G_R

Then it is a different story.

Could it be Lucky Jim?

could be run away by Dual Writer. It has the hiding and later digging up the gold part.

That was the answer to someone else's question a couple of days ago, I'm starting to get suspicious!

I think it is, and I was getting confused with the Lucky Jim scene with the wagons with the gold Copper & Lead.

Funny thing is, I only recently finished re reading Recluse & Ghost and the Florida Friends stories.

Thanks guys G_R

I think the original poster may have two or even three stories mixed up.

Run Away has the buried gold part but no selling the farm or bushwhackers when leaving.

Wagons Ho has a part about not owning the ranch, none of the rest matches.

Woodmanone's The trail west has an altercation with bushwhackers which sends the MC (josh) west. However there is no gold and the family never moves from the farm (although they do go west for a visit).

All three are very good stories.

I there is a single story out there with all three elements let me know I would be interested in reading it.

I have read so many good Westerns here, they all start to merge - River Pirates is another of my favourites

With some of the writer/storytellers we have here. It has to be very easy to mix up their stories at times. We are just lucky to have their stories available to us as readers.

This also happened in "Escape from Lexington" by FantasyLover.

That is what I love most about SOL and its sister/daughter sites. There are themes and plots for everyone to enjoy. A huge variety so almost everyone can find something to read that will suit their taste in reading materials.
