BOOK CLUB READER’S REVIEWS:
The Trail to Crazy Man (Part III) by Louis L’Amour
Review by Ruby Simms
“Dan Shute had taken over the London Ranch after Mr. London had an “accident” that injured his back. Barkow and Shutes were buying up land and forcing ranchers to sell. Rafe wondered why Barkow wanted the Rodney Ranch so badly since a section of it was not good for anything along with the fact that there was better land available elsewhere for miles around. One day, Rafe returned to find that his hired help had repaired a wagon using some gunk he found from three oil leaks he spotted on the Rodney property. That was the reason Barkow and Shute were eager to get the ranches.
Ann began to doubt her fiancée. When she heard that Dan Shutes’ men were going to the Rodney Ranch to kill Rafe and his hired hands, she got on a horse and rode as fast as she could to warn Rafe since she knew where to locate him by the cattle. Unfortunately, Bo Marsh was unarmed and Dan Shutes shot him at close range outside of the ranch house. The young 20-year-old was left to die. Shutes has his men set fire to the house. With snowflakes starting to fall, Rafe and has men had little shelter. Ann returned to town. Barkow talked Ann into leaving for the fort and getting on a riverboat that would be heading for St. Louis so they could leave that night. They could take the buckboard and act as if they were going for a ride. Ann did not know about Dan Shutes wanting her for himself. Dan discovered their absence and followed after them.
They arrived at the fort. Penn and Rock were in the fort and asked about Ann Rodney. Surprisingly, they learned that she was the lady at the fort. They told her the story of her father being at sea with them. Bruce overheard, pulled out a gun and shot Penn. He jumped on a horse and hurried out the gate of the fort. Dan catches up with Bruce and kills him before returning to the town of Painted Rock. Ann tried to catch up with Rafe to tell him of his friends at the fort. Dan Shutes kidnapped Ann and took her to Painted Rock. Rafe arrived in town and went to her uncle. Ann tells him that she found out the truth from his friends at the fort. Rafe goes to the National Saloon to find Dan Shute. They know that this is the time…they take out their guns to duke it out to the finish. The brawl was brutal. It ended when Dan fell on a table, broke his neck and died.”
