1921. Relating a series of startling and strenuous adventures, in the cow-town of Mesquite, of the famous Bar-20 trio-Hopalong Cassidy, Red Connors and Johnny Nelson. Mulford is the author of the Hopalong Cassidy and other Western novels. The book begins: Idaho Norton, laughing heartily, backed out of the barroom of Quayle's hotel and trod firmly on the foot of Ward Corwin, sheriff of the county, who was about to pass the door. Idaho wheeled, a casual apology trembling on his lips, to hear a biting, sarcastic flow of words, full of profanity, and out of all proportion to the careless injury. The sheriff's coppery face was a deeper color than usual and bore an expression not pleasant to see. The puncher stepped back a pace, alert, lithe, balanced, the apology forgotten, and gazed insolently into the peace officer's wrathful eyes.
