Riassunto: "The story is interesting and the characters fascinating, especially from a modern perspective. The idea of the Robin Hood with a slice of self-interest riding the Wild West is wonderful . . . if Westerns are popular at your library, add this one."--Beth Karpas, VOYA
Ride with Andy, Stub, and Hugh as they rope and wrangle their way into all sorts of adventures--and some trouble too! Old habits die hard for riders with outlaw ways, and when a range superintendent hires them to round up the orneriest mustangs in the country, they find a way to pad the numbers. With the money from the job, the mustangers start an honest ranch, but a crotchety cattleman crowds their turf--that is, until they set him straight with some tricks of their own. This fast-paced tale of riding, roping, and rustling is sure to set your spurs a-jingling for the frontier spirit of the Old West.
The tenth title in the Tumbleweed Series of Will James reprints, The Three Mustangeers, first published in 1933, is a classic novel of cowboy life. In the same tradition as Alexandre Dumas's The Three Musketeers, James weaves a tale of friendship, loyalty, and adventure on the high plains.
About the Author: Will James was born Joseph Ernest Nephtali Dufault in the province of Quebec on June 6, 1892. He left home as a teenager to live out his dream of becoming a cowboy in the American West. James went on to write and illustrate twenty-four books and numerous magazine articles about horses, cowboying, and the West. His works consistently captured the imagination of the public, earning him the nickname "the Pied Piper of the West." He died in 1942 at the age of fifty.
