The Small Texan

The Small Texan - J.T. Edson If you haven't read any of J.T. Edson's Floating Outfit books, then this is a good place to start.
Three connected short stories introduce Dusty Fog, Doc Leroy, Waco, the Ysabel Kid and Mark Counter and the things that set them apart from other denizens of the old west.

There's no long build ups, or looking at people's motivation. Baddies are bad and need good guys like the Floating Outfit to bring them down.

Reads like a good B-movie Western, with lots of action in a short book and plenty of lead flying around.
