Read full description of the books:
After being ambushed in Dodge City the year before Ben Holland, a kinsman of Dusty Fog, is unable to make the trip to Kansas. His neighbor, Thad Toon, takes advantage of the fact that Ben's wife Thora must fill his place and tries to keep her from getting a crew together. Unfortunately for him Old Devil Hardin has sent his floating outfit along to help out. Once word gets out that Dusty is bossing the drive they have the pick of the town. Those familiar with JT's Civil War series will remember Billy Jack and Kiowa (Dusty's sergeant major and scout respectively); both men were also members of the floating outfit in earlier stories. With a top notch crew assembled Dusty and the floating outfit take the herd to Dodge City and make the town in general, and one Wyatt Earp in particular, back down and hunt for cover. The Ysabel Kid finally meets up with an old enemy, Kliddoe, and reveals the secret of the third model Colt Dragoon he was using in place of a rifle in the first book of the series.

Read information about the authorJohn Thomas Edson is an English writer of Westerns.
He was born in 1928.He was obsessed with Westerns from an early age and often "rewrote" cowboy movies that he had seen at the cinema. One thing that always intrigued him was the minutiae—how did the baddie's gun jam? What were the mechanics of cheating at cards? How did Westerners really dress and speak?
His writing was helped to develop by a schoolteacher who encouraged him. Now lives in Leicester, Leicestershire.
During his 20s and 30s, Edson served in His Majesty's Armed Forces for 12 years as a Dog Trainer. Cooped up in barracks for long periods, he devoured books by the great escapist writers (Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert McCraig, Nelson C. Nye and Edgar Wallace). He also sat through hours of movies starring John Wayne, Randolph Scott, Errol Flynn and his all-time favourite, Audie Murphy.
His first appearance in print was "Hints On Self-Preservation when attacked by a War Dog" in the Osnabrück camp magazine Shufti in 1947. Acquiring a typewriter in the early 1950s and putting it to good use while posted to Hong Kong, by the time of his discharge he had written 10 Westerns, an early version of Bunduki and the first of the short detective-type stories starring Waco.
Upon leaving HM forces, JT won second prize (with Trail Boss) in the Western division of a Literary Competition run by Brown & Watson Ltd, which led to the publication of 46 novels with them, becoming a major earner for the company.
He had the need for supplementary income from time-to-time and also served as a postman, and the proprietor of a fish 'n' chip shop. Furthermore, he branched out as a writer and wrote five series of short stories (Dan Hollick, Dog Handler) for the Victor boys papers, and wrote the "box captions" for comic strips, which instilled discipline and the ability to convey maximum information with minimum words.
His writing career forged ahead when he joined Corgi Books in the late '60s, which gave JT exposure through a major publishing house, as well as the opportunity to branch out from the core Westerns into the Rockabye County, the science-fiction hero Bunduki and other series.
