The Night Horseman

The Night HorsemanStarts with and uses partial viewpoint from weak eyed Mr Magoo cartoon relief doctor who takes case of old rancher Dad and young daughter, whose spirits are draining magically waiting for Dan We shift out to the gunman with dead on shot, whose mild voice and manner tames big black wild wolf dog Black Bart and beautiful stallion Satan Dan, not Bull of previous book.Somehow wild geese honk magic, forcing Dan to move on. I liked this about 1 2 star less than the first in the series about Whistlin Dan The Untamed He is the total nature man, with the strength and cunning of a panther He and his horse and wolf dog communicate with one another marvelously, but he sure doesn t know how to relate to people well, even though he has a soft heart in some situations Tough and mean cowboys who don t know Dan tend to pick on him and make fun of him because of his small stature and quiet attitude most of the time But when they cross a certain line with him, he is regular tornado In this volume, most of the story revolves around Jerry, who Dan shot in a fair fight, and Jerry s older, meaner, nearly crazy brother Max, who stalks Dan across many chapters to get revenge for the shooting The third and last book of the series is The Seventh Man I listened to this book as a free download from by an excellent reader First published in 1919 Amazing EPub, The Night Horseman By Max Brand This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book The Night Horseman, Essay By Max Brand Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You I liked it, but it was not as good as Untamed A little slow at times.I plan on reading the other 2 in the Dan Barry series. What an Author lThis man must have a Bibliography in his head Outstanding job This story is fabulous,and one of the really good ones I have read I have no doubt he is a great guy This was a really unusual western It s an old book I bought at the Wallowa library sale It was written in 1920 I liked it but it sure wasn t what I was expecting I think the night horseman was death The book reminded me a lot of the Brad Pitt movie, Meet Joe Black I would love to discuss this book with someone If anyone would like to read it I ll mail it to you just for postage fees. It was way too wordy and boody The character of Dan Barry was just weird Was he supposed to be walking around in a daze What was I supposed to feel for him I have the impression of a character like Don Knotts who everyone loves and fears. 2 in the Man, a horse and a dog Good read. The story of a man, a horse, and a dog What is the story Not the one you might expect from such an early Western, that s for sure Nor are the man, the horse, or the dog exactly as you would expect The man is animal than man, the horse human than horse, the dog wolf than dog Whistling Dan Barry is one strange dude Slender framed, softly spoken and with apologetic eyes, he lives alone under the stars and follows the wild geese, uninterested in other people unless they cross his path.Jerry and Mac Strann are two mean brothers he crosses paths with when the former takes a fancy to Satan, the peerless black horse which he alone can ride Then the latter messes with his dog, Black Bart.Like I said, Whistling Dan is one weird hombre Is he completely feral Is he a werewolf Is he an unexplainable force of nature, like the wind he whistles into Doctor Byrne, an intelligent but weak man of science whose contrast to Barry is one of the stories strongpoints, calls him anatavismHere s Barry when his old running mate Buck soon to be an enemy after an unusual incident meets up with him to bring him home to the adopted father and jilted bride he walked out on some months ago and in a previous bookI s pose you re bustin to find out the news about the folks, he said dryly, at last.The other sat with his hands loosely clasped in his lap His wide eyes looked far away, and there was about his lips that looseness, that lack of compression, which one sees so often in children He might have sat, in that posture, for the statue of thoughtlessness What folks he asked at last.Max Brand has a reputation as a writer of literary Westerns He was a contemporary of Zane Grey and I know that many consider him to have been the better writer I have read a few of Grey s books, I liked them, but none had a quality of prose or depth of character to rival The Night Horseman. This was good, strong, atmospheric stuff, though I did have a couple of reservations Firstly, I really think it would have helped if i had read that first book the series first, just to make some sense of the hero Secondly, Brand robbed us of the fitting climax the plot demanded.The next time i read a western though, it s going to be another by Brand If not that soon, then soon after that for sure.I ever get around to reading the first book in the series I may well revisit my rating of this installment too. Like we say in France it does not break three leg to a story drowned itself after a while nothing really happened and the endguess I was already sleeping like a log at the time I was reading those last pagesor felt like I wasSo I won t try it again except if I m plagued by insomnia
