Pothook Marrs is the day cook at the Cattleman's Rest, a small cafe in Dallas. He was once a top-hand cowboy and expert roper. He was also a mavericker, suspected of mavericking after it was outlawed in Texas. Above all, he was believed to have shot his best friend in the back. He had been arrested, tried, convicted, and sent to prison, and he had escaped. He was just a youth then, and time has changed how he looks, although it cannot hide the scars from the rope burns on his hands. A deftly crafted and gripping story from beginning to end, "The Last Ride" showcases author Les Savage's total master of a narrative driven western novel replete with unexpected plot twists and a truly riveting conclusion. Especially appropriate for personal reading lists and community library collections, this large print edition of "The Last Ride" is very strongly recommended.
