Publisher's Description

A strong-willed woman enlists a hard-bitten gunslinger to fight a ranch war in this classic western drama from an award–winning author.

Dave Nash smells trouble the moment he rides into Signal. He’s only been working for Walt Shipley three weeks, but he feels he owes the man his life for giving him a job when no one else would. Now, Nash will do anything for Shipley—even if it means staring down the barrel of a gun. He’ll face any danger for his new boss, but he hasn’t reckoned on the most dangerous creature of all: a conniving frontier woman.
 
Connie Dickason is the most seductive woman in Signal, and Shipley has his heart set on marrying her. But a brewing war with a powerful cattleman drives Shipley from town, leaving Connie and Nash to defend the ranch together. The ranch hand soon discovers that the boss’s wife will stop at nothing to get what she wants.
 
Adapted into a 1947 United Artists film starring Joel McCrea and Veronica Lake, Ramrod is a classic noir western that displays the versatile storytelling powers of award-winning author Luke Short.
 
 

Author Bio

Luke Short is the pen name of Frederick Dilley Glidden (1908–1975), the bestselling, award-winning author of over fifty classic western novels and hundreds of short stories. Renowned for their action-packed story lines, multidimensional characters, and vibrant dialogue, Glidden’s novels sold over thirty million copies. Ten of his novels, including Blood on the Moon, Coroner Creek, and Ramrod, were adapted for the screen. Glidden was the winner of a special Western Heritage Trustees Award and the Levi Strauss Golden Saddleman Award from the Western Writers of America.
 
Born in Kewanee, Illinois, Glidden graduated in 1930 from the University of Missouri where he studied journalism.  After working for several newspapers, he became a trapper in Canada and, later, an archaeologist’s assistant in New Mexico. His first story, "Six-Gun Lawyer," was published in Cowboy Stories magazine in 1935 under the name F. D. Glidden. At the suggestion of his publisher, he used the pseudonym Luke Short, not realizing it was the name of a real gunman and gambler who was a friend of Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp. In addition to his prolific writing career, Glidden worked for the Office of Strategic Services during World War II. He moved to Aspen, Colorado, in 1946, and became an active member of the Aspen Town Council, where he initiated the zoning laws that helped preserve the town.
