About the Author

Dusty Richards writes of the Arizona where he lived, explored, and hunted in his youth. The land of cactus, unforgiving heat, sidewinders, deep canyons, and the dark-eyed Apache renegade crouched in the greasewood. This is a territory of legends that he still explores for the untold stories of the past. He is the author of Lawless Land. Rancher, rodeo announcer, former TV anchor, and author of over a dozen books, he is a member of the Western Writers of America.

I have to say in all honesty that I thoroughly enjoyed Waltzing With Tumbleweeds. I got the book because it is a group of short stories - perfect for bedtime reading. The stories were entertaining and charming, and great reads! I found that after reading each story I was wishing it was longer; I wanted to know more about the people in the story. I look forward to reading more of Dusty Richards' work.

I knew Dusty's prose would pull me into his stories but I never dreamed the bittersweet tales would include a surprise ingredient: love. Romance is hiding among pages filled with leather, horses and dusty roads. It's a delicious treat.

Most of these stories were great, a few were brilliant.

As an old West fan, and a long time member of SASS, I'm a critic of stories that don't ring true. These do.

Interesting perspective of the "Old West" seen through various characters. Think "Wagon Train" or "Gunsmoke" without the same characters repeated in each story. Some were poignant, some stark, all with a different hook to keep me reading. I enjoyed this collection.

This book of Tales of the Old West was a good read....it was fun to read of the rowdy west. Some of the stories were down right funny...others were tales of the heart, of forgiviness.
I was impressed with the women of the Tales, some had very hard times, others were very strong in adverse conditions.
Many of the women were left in very scary situations, only to have to prove to themselves they were of good stock, in the fact that they could get out of situations that they thought impossible.

I was ready for some good short stories......and these could have been good, but most of them were basically a "first chapter" to what might have been a very good story if the author had just kept writing.

I am not usually one for reading tales of the west but for some reason i did read this one and I am glad that I did inside this collection of short stories are some little gems that you will enjoy reading time and time again such as 'heroes were never born' which is my favourite tale in the collection. A well written body of work with interesting, identifiable and believable characters that carries the reader quickly along and leaves you wanting more which is the golden rule of short story writing
Bravo Mr Richards

If you like short stories with a western flavor, this is certainly a good choice.
I appreciate the ability to have 'quick read' material available for these occasions where you want to relax for a few minutes and not get entangled in a lengthy novel.
Dusty Richards, obviously a pen name, makes each story unique and sometimes with a bit of a surprise; not easily done with short stories
