Max Brand (1892-1944)
The Untamed (1919 All-Story Weekly)
This is the first of four books with Whistlin' Dan Barry.
1. The Untamed
2. The Night Horseman
3. The Seventh Man
I saw Max Brand mentioned in a post by DrDribb a few days ago and decided I was in the mood for a Western. It turned out that The Untamed was a very entertaining read.
Max Brand is one of the psuedonyms of Frederick Faust a very prolific writer who is said to have written thirty million words during his career. In The Untamed it is easy to see the fictionalized west that will depicted by Hollywood, with heroes and villians that are larger than life and live or die by their own inflexible code of honor.
