The first of three books collecting the Silver Trent short stories that appeared in Star Western following the cancellation of The Western Raider. Includes “Silver Trent Rides Back to Hell,” “The Law of Silver Trent,” and “Gun-Doctor For the Damned.”
Over trackless, uncharted mountains and flaming deserts, where thirst and hunger took their toll in blood and death, Silver Trent led the remnant of his Raiders against El Diablo’s mighty wasteland stronghold…. But could Silver hope to rally his enslaved countrymen imprisoned there and win free the girl he loved—or would he and his loyal followers spend the rest of their days in that desert tyrant’s torture pits?
Out of disaster, Silver Trent rallied the shattered remnants of his once-proud crew… for El Diablo’s new and bloody terror decreed dishonor for the girl Silver loved and tortured death for every honest rider in the stricken borderlands. Yet what hope had the Rio Robin Hood’s tattered ghosts of men—if El Diablo could send a hundred flashing, well-trained killers against every loyal man they mustered?
Terror had claimed the bitter ranges below the Rio and death was stalking its towns, when Silver Trent and his raiders left their mountain hideout to save a doomed cowboy and a hapless girl…. For through these two, Silver hoped to break the power of the cunning range-devil who had spread this net of violence and blood. But an army was pledged to hang Silver’s bullet-shattered body from the wasteland’s highest tree!
