Man in the Saddle tells the story of a small-time rancher resisting the efforts of a ranching magnate bent on buying him out and, when that fails, squeezing him out of business by any means possible. When pushed to the wall, the hero is forced to resort to gun-play in an attempt to secure his livelihood and the love of his life. A thrilling read packed with gritty western attitude and gun-toting action, Man in the Saddle is a book not to be missed by any lover of western narrative. A giant western literature, Ernest Haycox is famous for introducing a more complex, brooding hero into the western literature, arguably defining the genre and giving rise to the gritty determination often found in the characters of canonical western films. Famous for doing careful historical research, the books of Ernest Haycox are credited as being accurate portrayals of western history, full of action and insight. This book has been republished here with a biography of the author.
