But she had flung herself forward face down far out of their reach. They dared not venture into the quivering bog after her. While they still stared in a frozen horror, the tragedy was completed. The victim of their revenge had disappeared beneath the surface of the morass. - William MacLeod Raine lived from 1871 to 1954, and wrote the western adventure novels "A Texas Ranger" (1910), "Mavericks" (1911), and "Yukon Trail" (1917). His fictional works, often written in cowboy vernacular, inspired many movies and other books. He also wrote a famous non-fiction work entitled 'Famous Sheriffs and Western Outlaws' in 1920, an unforgettable account of pioneer settlers in the west and their conflicts. His books are filled with stories of gamblers, prospectors, hunters, drinking men, outlaws, rustlers, Indians, marshals and sheriffs. Raine died in 1954. Five years later, he was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Great Westerners of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. . Hard Cover.
