"Riders of the Dawn" by Louis L'Amour appears here for the first time in a hardcover book. Matt Sabre is a drifter, a veteran of foreign wars who has returned to the West to find his fortune. He stops in Hattan's Point, not particularly interested in staying, until he is presented with a challenge that he just can't refuse. In "From Missouri" by Zane Grey[registered], three cowhands have tried to discourage a schoolteacher in the East from coming West to teach school. Their strategy fails and she arrives, and to everyone's amazement she's young and very attractive, which creates trouble. In "Over the Northern Border" by Max Brand[registered], Jack Trainor tries to save his brother-in-law from certain death by attempting to elude the sheriff's posse, but the pursuit becomes so difficult he changes course and heads north. But winter is coming and Jack is not prepared for it any more than he is for survival in the Canadian wilderness.
