Frank Castle – Dakota Boomtown (1958)


Vintage Western
Wild Wild West Reading Challenge #26
Monthly Key Word: Town (November)
TBR #129
Date Finished: December 1, 2018

A young man comes to a Dakota Territory boomtown that is serving miners and others headed to the gold field in the Black Hills. He wheels and deals, makes some friends and some enemies, but always working for himself, until he learns some important lessons.

This reads a bit more like a big business scheme than a western, though his business dealings are of a western type, such as cattle, saloons, and mining supplies. The learns-his-lesson plot is rather predictable, but the writing is good enough, though I would have preferred more South Dakota flavor.
