William Hopson – High Saddle (1952)

Magnum70-052

Western
Category: Set Outside Texas
Date Finished: November 25, 2015

A loner, a white boy raised by Indians, tracks the killer of his sister. They travel through the desert, down into Mexico, all the while dealing with Apaches and a gang of misfits who think there is a bounty on the killer. Can the gang cooperate enough to deal with the Apaches? Unlikely. This was quite well-done, with strong characters and action. Hopson writes quite well and the feeling is more of a 1970s hard-edged movie, rather than a 1952 hardcover western.
