Praise for The Best of Frontier Tales, Volume 2

"The genre 'Western Stories' is more a state of mind than of place. Cooper's famous Leatherstocking Tales were mainly set in New York State – at the time, that was the West.
      "While the stories in Volume Two of Frontier Tales are predominately set west of the Rockies, they are timeless in that they could occur almost anywhere that 'civilization' hasn't encroached too deeply.
      "From a woman about to become a widow to a young girl who was determined to follow her heart, a lady who avenged a terrible wrong, enemies who became friends and a most unlikely bounty hunter, the fair sex showed their mettle.
      "Youngsters learned the sad facts behind the need for the underground railroad, old men learned that education had value and brothers found common ground, while a fancy saddle helps a man avenge the death of a man he met only briefly.
      "There are too many tales to mention every one, yet a few stood out beyond the rest. Ellen Gray Massey's The Hog Lot Shooting proves taking the law into your own hands is sometimes necessary.
      "Kenneth Newton's The Stock Detective, Gary Ives's Indian Agent and Kenneth Mark Hoover's Redemption Bound show men who try to uphold the law as they see it.
      "In any anthology, there are always one or two stories that stay with you. On volume One, I agreed with the editors that White Oak's Tale had earned their "Choice" designation. In Volume Two, while I agree that Greg Camp's The Driving Flame well deserved the honor, I'm just happy I'm not on the committee . . . I'd opt for all the tales!"
