Saturday Morning Western Pulp: 5 Western Novels, April 1951

As usual, the "novels" in this pulp are more like novellas and novelettes, but the line-up of authors in this one is pretty good, with J. Allen Dunn, A. Leslie (really Leslie Scott), and Ed Earl Repp.  I'm not familiar with the other two writers featured on the cover, although I think I've heard of Wilton West.  And you've got to love a title like "The Rawhide Gap Hellions".  At least I do.

I really look forward to this "Saturday morning western pulp" series. I think the cover depicts a scene where the $40 a month cowhand is sneaking off upstairs with the rich rancher's daughter. The rancher has threatened the cowboy with hanging if he is ever found near the daughter, so that explains the worried look on the cowboy's face.

Thanks, James. Another good one. And Walker, you've put your finger on what surely made this one fly off the racks.
