Gillett tell this story and it reads like he talked - you simply live those six years with him." - BTB 76 "I regard Gillett as the strongest and straightest of all ranger narrators. He combined in his nature wild restlessness and loyal gentleness. He wrote in sunlight." - Dobie p. 59-60. (Graff 1553; Six-Guns 829; Howes G177; One-Fifty 62; Rader 1591). Next day shipping.
