Book Review: The Gold Trail

This western tale is the last of the stories in a trio book written by Max Brand under the title The Gold Trail. This story features one of Max Brands most popular character Reata. He is being sought by the law and chased by three outlaws who want the gold he has recovered so that they can flee to Mexico. The story also has two female characters his mystery lady Agnes Lester and the always faithful gypsy girl Mirian. When he is surrounded by the law the gypsy Mirian comes to his rescue. I recommend this book for the quality of the writing and the interest created by this popular western character of Max Brands. It seems so funny strange to me that we have a writer that has dipped his pin into many various types of stories writing over five hundred books and stories but gives it all up to be a war correspondent in World War II and then gets killed what a shame.
