Louis L'Amour brings the Wild West back to life in three unstoppable adventures! "Mistakes Can Kill You" is the story of Johnny O'Day. Half-dead from pneumonia and on the brink of giving up, he was taken in as a boy and nursed back to health by a young couple. Growing up, Johnny harbored nothing but resentment and jealousy of their biological son, Sam. But now Sam is in big trouble, and it seems that Johnny may be the only person who can come between his half brother and a pair of gunmen. Ross Haney is "The Rider of Ruby Hills." At twenty-seven, he's broke, armed, and ready to settle down. But when a feud breaks out between the owners of two of the biggest spreads in Ruby Hills, it looks like the fair town is on the brink of destruction. Ross was a loner at first, but now he's got allies and a plan . . . In the title story, Krag Moran is a rider who becomes involved in a range war among ranchers and nesters. The town is divided, and by the time shots are fired and the body count starts to rise, Krag will have a lot of explaining to do to the wrong people. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction that takes place in the old West. Westerns--books about outlaws, sheriffs, chiefs and warriors, cowboys and Indians--are a genre in which we publish regularly. Our list includes international bestselling authors like Zane Gray and Louis L'Amour, and many more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

display_description In "Mistakes Can Kill You," we meet Johnny O'Day, who has had to make his way in a man's world since he was a boy. Half dead from pneumonia, Joe Redlin and his wife took him in. Their natural son, Sam, harbored plenty of resentment toward the kid. But now, Sam's in big trouble, and Johnny may be the only person who can come between him and a pair of gunmen. Twenty-seven, broke, and armed, Ross Haney is "The Rider of Ruby Hills." Ross thinks he might be able to settle down and make a good life for himself here. But the owners of the two biggest spreads are participants in a feud that promises to destroy Ruby Hills. Ross may have been alone when he arrived in town, but now he has allies and plans. . . Krag Moran rides for rancher Carol Duchin in the title story. With the threat of a range war between ranchers and nesters, the town is divided. Trouble comes to a head when Bush Leason shoots Shorty Grimes in the back. Now, Krag is sitting in front of the Palace Saloon, and Bush knows exactly why he's there.
