A continuation of the original saga of Hopalong Cassidy: two complete novels from Clarence E. Mulford in one low-priced edition.
When Hopalong and Red hear that Johnny Nelson has been knocked over the head and robbed of a big chunk of cash over in Mesquite, they race to his aid-and are immediately framed for a bank robbery. Then the trouble really begins....
Tex Ewalt was educated before he came west and can quote Shakespeare, philosophy, and the Bible, which spices up his conversation some. He's gotten restless again and hopes to hook up with Hopalong Cassidy and Red Connors. On the way he takes the train south to the mining town of Windsor, Kansas and decides to stay a while and make some money playing poker. Windsor, though, is run by Gus Williams, an old enemy. The chaos that ensues leads to a fight between the miners and the railroad--and more than one gunfight.
