Hopalong Cassidy Tor Books Clarence E. Mulford

7th July 2013 Literature & Fiction 0 Comments

Jim Meeker came down from Montana to run Texas cattle–only to find that Hoppy’s Bar-20 ran the water. So when a trio of snake-mean rustlers started themselves a cattle war, the powder was primed, the guns cocked, and Hoppy was smack in the middle.

So it’s friend against friend, brother against brother, gun against blazing gun. Time’s running out, and the range is red with blood.

Clarence E. Mulford is the creator of the character Hopalong Cassidy, who appeared in countless films, novelizations, and a long running television series. Mulford died in 1956.

Most know Hopalong Cassidy from the movies of the 1930′s starring William Boyd. But the original Hoppy was a much different character, the subject of several dozen historically accurate novels. Here he is a red-headed and hot-blooded young cowhand about to marry a neighbor’s daughter. A nasty Mexican stirs up enmity between his outfit and the neighbor’s, and violence ensues. Stan Winiarski’s voice is deep, Texan, rough and expressive. He shades the characters subtly, not attempting full-blown unique voices. The match between story and narrator is exquisite. D.W.
