A very enjoyable, humorous western, with an army scout undercover in a mining town, exposing the gang that is robbing departing miners of their riches. The reveal of the ultimate mastermind is a bit obvious, but the wittiness of the hero, especially his asides in Spanish and French during his rousing address to the town, translated in full at the end, is very enjoyable. It is surprising that this is so unknown. Only two members on LibraryThing own this work, me and Ernest Hemingway. Great minds and all that.
