I probably should recuse myself from reviewing a Lubrican story. It's not my fault, he's a master at his craft, taking a story theme and creating something wonderful. Yes, I'm a fan and "Love on the Range" just deepened my appreciation for his story-telling. My only complaint is that he could take this story and stretch it out into a full novel. It ended too soon IMHO.
What? Did someone say they've never read any of his stories? Well, why are you reading this when you should be reading something by Bob Lubrican. Go, do it now, thank me later.

Life on the Frontier was hard and dangerous. Imagine if you will how tough it was when the Man of the Ranch got killed leaving behind his wife and three daughters. So, like Mae West said, "Hard men are good to find!" when Dusty arrives to help out, the Double O Cattle Ranch is saved just in the nick of time. And another tale of the Old West is forged. Enjoy
