More About the Author

IF THERE WAS A SATURDAY MATINEE, Dusty was there with Hoppy, Roy and Gene. He went to roundup at seven-years-old, sat on a real horse and watched them brand calves on the Peterson Ranch in Othello, Washington. When his family moved to Arizona from the Midwest, at age 13, he knew he'd gone to heaven. A horse of his own, ranches to work on, rodeos to ride in, Dusty's mother worried all his growing up years he'd turn out to be some "old cowboy bum."

He read every western book on the library shelves. He sat on the stoop of Zane Grey's cabin on Mrs. Winter's ranch and looked out over the "muggie-own" rim and promised the writer's ghost his book would join Grey's some day on the book rack.

Since English teachers never read westerns, he made up book reports like "Guns on the Brazos" by J.P. Jones. The story of a Texas Ranger who saves the town and the girl. Then he sold them for a dollar to other boys too lazy to read when teenagers were lucky to earn fifty cents an hour. In fact, book reports kept him and his buddy in gas money to go back and forth to high school.

After graduating from Arizona State University in 1960, he came to northwest Arkansas, ranched, auctioneered, announced rodeo, worked 32 years for Tyson Food in management, anchored TV news and struggled to get a book of his own sold. The three earlier books on the list were published without his knowledge and only discovered in 2011 as even existing.

In 1992, his first novel, Noble's Way was published. In 2003, his novel The Natural won the Oklahoma Writer's Federation Fiction Book of the Year Award. In 2004, The Abilene Trail won the same award. Dusty invests a lot of his time helping others who want to learn how to write by speaking at seminars and conferences all over the United States. There is no difference in writing any kind of fiction. In Dusty's words, "You simply change the sets, costumes and dialect."

He serves on the board of Ozark Creative Writers Conference held annually in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, as well as on the boards of the Ozarks Writers League in Branson, Missouri, and the Oklahoma Writers Federation. He also serves on the board of his local electric co-op, and of the Springdale, Arkansas, PRCA rodeo. He is president of Western Writers of America. In 2004 he was inducted into the Arkansas Writers Hall of Fame.

Over one hundred books have been published under his own name and pseudonyms. That does not count his five dozen plus short stories and hundreds of articles and columns.

Dusty and his wife, Pat, reside next to Beaver Lake east of Springdale, Arkansas, that is whenever they aren't off at speaking engagements or writing conferences, announcing rodeos or chuckwagon racing, or researching for western novels. He and his wife have two wonderful daughters, Ann and Rhonda, two great sons-in-law, and four super grandkids.

If he can steal time to do it, Dusty likes to fish for trout on the White River in Arkansas.

This is the fourth book in Dusty Richards' series about Montana lawman Herschel Baker, but Herschel isn't actually the protagonist in this one, although he plays a large part. The hero is Herschel's young cousin Wulf Baker, who as the book opens is still living on a ranch in Texas owned by his mother and stepfather. Wulf doesn't get along with his stepfather (and Richards does a good job making the guy truly despicable), so after a particularly bad clash between them, Wulf decides to take off for Montana and visit his cousin.

Meanwhile, Herschel is busy hunting down the gang of outlaws who tortured an old buffalo hunter and stole a fortune in ancient Spanish gold from him. I haven't read any of the other Herschel Baker novels, but he's a fine character, a kind, decent man who's also tough enough to deal with lawbreakers and smart enough to outwit them.

Wulf has some adventures of his own before he finally reaches Montana, where Herschel promptly deputizes him so he can help with rounding up the last of the outlaws Herschel is after. Wulf proves to be a very capable lawman despite his youth, but instead of settling down in Montana, he decides he has to go home to settle things with his stepfather.

Dusty Richards' writing has a great voice and a pure yarn-spinning quality, and his heroes are flawed but sympathetic. I really enjoyed this book, and I plan to go back and find the other Herschel Baker novels so I can read them.

In the last book we met Herschel Baker's father, in this one we meet his cousin Wulf. Wulf's stepfather has made life in Texas difficult to say the least, he sold the boy's dog and his horse, turned his mother against him and stolen the ranch his father left him. Afraid he may kill the guy, Wulf decides to go visit his cousin, in Montana. He says good-bye to his friends and sweeheart and heads north through indian territory. He stops to buy lunch from a woman and her daughter serving soup or stew and is taken with the young woman. (this was how his uncle met his future bride) He gets to Montana helps his cousin capture some bad guys meets his cousin wife and stepdaughers. He learns that his sweetheart has died, but the law has caught up to his stepfather so he heads back to Texas.

I like Mr. Richards writing and enjoyed this story.

This is a start up for a new character in the Hershel Baker series. It lives up to the excellent writing in that series, and leaves you wanting more.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I, first, read this author's short story in ""THE TRADITIONAL
WEST""--and--thought it was pretty good---all of them were. So
when I spotted this book the name clicked so I thought I would
give it a try. Again it is an okay book. Really a lot of action
and different adventures happen. If I had a complaint it would have
to be that the book needed some editing---misspelled words---
dialogue credited to the wrond people---just some polishing up.
Other than that---a quick, fast, entertaining read--GOOD JOB!!
