These novels represent some of the best of Brands western writing. They illustrate the expansiveness of Brands imagination and the fecundity with which he would vary his themes, examining the human condition from numerous disparate viewpoints.

In Max Brands stories no character is either a hero or a villain, and most are mixtures of both. That is certainly the case in The Ghost Wagon, first published in 1921. Both Lew Carney and Jack Doyle love Mary Hamilton-and she has plans of her own. Rodeo Ranch proved one of Brands most popular short novels the year it first appeared in Western Story Magazine (1923). Slip Liddel (1938) is set during the Depression and centers on a poor mans revenge.

It is reminiscent of Brands own unhappy early years as a farm and ranch laborer. A Matter of Honor was published under the title Jericos Garrison Finish in 1921. The story has much more to do with Jim Orchards struggles to distinguish between honor and pride than with mere horse racing. Brands fiction was frequently amputated by magazine editors seeking to fit it to the page, and his titles were often changed to appear more exciting or appealing. Jon Tuska has returned to the original manuscripts, restoring the full texts and original titles.
