But, in truth, Terry is the son of the outlaw Black Jack Hollis.

For 25 years, Terry Colby has lived a sheltered life. But, in truth, Terry is the son of the outlaw Black Jack Hollis. When Hollis was murdered, Elizabeth bet her brother, Vance, that she could raise Hollis’s son to be an honest man, that it was the environment and not the blood that determined a man’s character. Before the evening of Terry’s 25th birthday, Vance sets a series of events in motion that will put Elizabeth’s belief in Terry to the test.

The raucous beginning of Brand's Western is traditional: A gunfighter is shot dead in the street

The raucous beginning of Brand's Western is traditional: A gunfighter is shot dead in the street. However, when spinster Elizabeth Cornish takes his baby to raise and wagers with her brother that blood will not "will out"-that Jack's son will not be a murderer-a fascinating story of nature versus nurture emerges.

First there is a very fine Western about the son of a murdered bad guy who is raised as a fine gentleman. The story is about a bet between sister and brother whether genetics is stronger and the child will turn bad like his father or environment shall prove stronger and the child will become an outstanding citizen.

The second story leads two young Western men, thrown together by circumstances, to New York City where they encounter a crime boss and his minions while trying to rescue to damsels in distress.

Both are fine Western stories and worthy reading.

This is the first Max Brand book I've read since I was a kid. He was one of the masters of western story telling.

This is the classic tale of good versus evil, only in this story they happen to be the same guy. The book starts out strong, with our hero being set up to fail by his adopted uncle. With this failure he then turned out by his adopted mother and starts down the outlaw trail. This is a great story and holds together well, all the way to the end. The story ends rather abruptly, with some unanswered questions and one sentance explainations. It almost seemed like the author just ran out of steam. It is a worth while book, but don't expect a large suspenseful ending.

Thanks to Amazon for supplying some free Max Brand books to kindle.

A typical Max Brand easy read. My dad used to read Max Brand westerns when I was a young kid. I decided to try this one and can see why he read them. Fast read and you can lose your self in it. It is not as realistic as newer westerns though. If you like the old western writers you will like this book (actually two stories).

When I was very young. I would read all of his books. This is the first I've read since then. It is really good to find books that just tell a very good story. I definitely recommend this book to all who like the same.

love Max Brand's westerns - black Jack has very good character development, good story of how the blood in the father
is also in the son.

The Large Print Classic Western Library books are a wonderful source for "the good ole days" stories by authors such as Max Brand. I don't have to cringe at unacceptable language or settings when I give my 95-yr old mother-in-law one of these beautiful, large-print, bold-text books. With limited sight and mobility, there are dwindling options for entertainment. These books fill a large void.

Some more adventure that kept me reading for to long every single night ! LOL But it was worth it to enjoy the growing up of a young man to be what he always really wanted to be !!
This is the first book I have ever read by max Braun, and now I want to continue to add his works to my library. This story kept my interest from the beginning, with a masterful job a keeping the reader in suspense. I particularly enjoyed the way the story developed. I won't say the ending, but it wasn't what I expected. In retrospect, it was a perfect ending to a well written book.
