    My first experience of Dorothy Johnson s work and it was excellent These four Western stories are wonderfully well written, and not run of the mill, either the concept of each is original and attention holding My favorite was The Hanging Tree, a novella length story set in a gold mining camp, with its unique, carefully drawn characters and slowly but surely unfolding plot I ve n

    At the risk of redundancy, this is a collection of four western short stories A Man Called Horse, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Lost Sister and The Hanging Tree These stories were originally published between 1947 and 1959 the afterward credits Johnson with not imposing 20th Century values on 19th Century characters, and you can well imagine the difference between even the values at the time of Johnson s writing and

    This book was EXCELLENT I am only sorry it took me so long to read these classic short stories and one novella A Man Called Horse much different than the movie version I saw , The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance also different from the movie, why the name change to Tom Doniphon , The Lost Sister made me think of Quanah Parker, though he did not get captured or die young , and finally my favorite of the four, The Hanging Tree I h
