The Boss of the Lazy Y - ebook/epub
Charles Alden Seltzer
KtoCzyta.pl
The story concerns a complicated, angry, daredevil son, Calumet Marston, who returns to his boyhood homestead to find his hated father dead and a stranger, a woman named Betty, in charge. Her family had aided his father, and now she is „'the boss'”. He also left a testimony which states that Calumet must give a practical demonstration of reform in character if he wants to inherit his father’s money, and Betty is the one to be the judge of that. Written in the style of the early writers of the modern western, this is a vivid story of the depths to which any person can sink without discipline, charity and love. A classic story that is considered to be Seltzer’s best work with action and romance trailing at every turn.
