Things are heating up in Big Coulee. Unorthodox road agent Horse-shy Halloran, who got his name because horses always do him dirt, has been seen in town buying women's clothing. The gold miners' association is about to ship $70,000 of gold dust. The brutal and fearsome Burgoyne brothers are in the neighborhood. And Wells Fargo agent Samuel Quarternight has fallen in love with the banker's daughter, Faye. Halloran just wants to make off with the gold, but he gets far more deeply involved with this cast than he'd like and becomes an unwilling and thoroughly despised hero. An enjoyable tale from a mastersmall, inconsequential, and well worth it. Edwin B. Burgess, U.S. Army TRALINET Ctr., Fort Monroe, Va.

Henry W Halloran was better-known as Horse-Shy Halloran, though few dared to call him that to his person. As he rides towards SanFrancisco, he dreams of rich widows, soft beds, the Barbary Coast nightlife, and Halloran's Music Hall.
