Thumbs up Brand, Max: Alcatraz v2 14 may 2009

Max Brand:

Frederick Schiller Faust (1892-1944) was an American fiction author known primarily for his thoughtful and literary Westerns. Faust wrote mostly under pen names, and today he is primarily known by one, Max Brand. Others include George Owen Baxter, Martin Dexter, Evin Evans, David Manning, Peter Dawson, John Frederick, and Pete Morland. Faust was born in Seattle. He grew up in central California and later worked as a cowhand on one of the many ranches of the San Joaquin Valley. Faust attended the University of California, Berkeley, where he began to write frequently. During the 1910s, Faust started to sell stories to the many emerging pulp magazines of the era. In the 1920s, Faust wrote furiously in many genres, achieving success and fame, first in the pulps and later in the upscale "slick" magazines. His love for mythology was, however, a constant source of inspiration for his fiction and his classical and literary inclinations.

Alcatraz:

Quote:
The west wind came over the Eagles, gathered purity from the evergreen slopes of the mountains, blew across the foothills and league wide fields, and came at length to the stallion with a touch of coolness and enchanting scents of far-off things. Just as his head went up, just as the breeze lifted mane and tail, Marianne Jordan halted her pony and drew in her breath with pleasure. For she had caught from the chestnut in the corral one flash of perfection and those far-seeing eyes called to mind the Arab belief.
A splendid LRF version of this book has been made by the fabulous Dr.Drib

Here are the ePub and Mobi versions of one of the greatest westerns of all time.

PS: The great cover comes right from the Manybooks version of this book. You did a good job there, dear Manybooks crew!

Have you seen page 16? There are two songs which have their lines separated by a whole bunch of < b r / > 's causing them to be spaced out very widely.

I wonder why they were converted that way.

I will check that. I used the PG epubs for this book, as there is no html available yet. Of course, this new method of putting together a book may have a few bugs until I have ironed out the problems. So please let me know about any bad layout you encounter.

Please do not mention a page number when referring as this is hard to locate. Just give me a line of text. That is a lot easier to find.

Oops, didn't notice that you don't have a Sony Reader.

Look at the end of Chapter II, starting at the text "At the end of the trail", and "Oh, father, father William"
