Free (Kindle) Fence Busters by Gordon Landsborough [Anti-Fencing Conspiracy Western]

The Fence Busters by the late British author Gordon Landsborough (Wikipedia, Fantastic Fiction), a prolific and pioneering multi-genre pulp fiction writer and publisher, is his vintage standalone western historical action adventure novel, this one painting fencing as deadly SRS BSNS, as a man's ambitious startup plan to bring wire fencing to Texas gets shot down, literally, leaving his nephew to pick up the business and carry on to establish it despite all opposition (which apparently takes the form of an Easterner-funded anti-fencing conspiracy amongst the locals, and also the local Native Americans who understandably don't want to see their remaining territory fenced in), free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press' Pioneering imprint.

This was originally published in 1952 by T. V. Boardman using the pseudonym Tom Gordon.

Currently free @ Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else worldwide that Amazon sells, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive or else program)

Description
A question of honour…

Walt Rath is an old-timer, keen to take advantage of the open Texas range by bringing in wire fencing to the state.

But he is getting on, and sees the future of the business with his nephew – the young and reckless Tom Midnight.

Midnight may be youthful, but he sure is tough, and in his Uncle’s own words, a born leader.

But Midnight isn’t keen to get involved.

That is until Walt is gunned down by the merciless Gun De Leon – a killer hired by the fence busters who are determined to see anyone trying to put up wire fencing in the state brought down.

With vengeance on his mind, Midnight is inspired to carry on the business, especially as he now has Sandy under his wing – a young woman recently orphaned after the death of her father.

The pair join up, and inevitably fall for each other.

With his personal life all but figured out, Midnight now needs a team to help his fencing business grow, and receive the fortunes that his Uncle promised.

Especially, as so many are against him, including the frightful Stan Oopey, known as ‘The Longhorn’ and even the local town Sherriff, who is being funded by Easterners to stay firmly against the fencing industry.

But Midnight and his gang’s main trouble lies with the Indians, whose presence in the state makes it near impossible to put up fences.

Midnight must find a way to get rid of the Indians, but this in itself is fraught with danger, considering the conflict between the Texans and the natives.

And what about the Indian who is in Midnight’s own ranks?

A man who has sworn can be trusted… Will he turn against the fencers?

Tom Midnight is quickly making a lot of enemies, but with Sandy by his side he is determined to make the business work, and honour his late Uncle.

Only time will tell who will come out on top.

The Indians, or The Fence Busters...?

I swear, I read your title and thought it had something to do with someone who had a thing against rapiers. En garde!
