Eugene Manlove Rhodes's masterpiece, "Paso Por Aqui", opens this collection of his short novels and stories, set in New Mexico, where he lived during the 1880s and 1890s. J. Frank Dobie praised Rhodes's artistry, and Bernard DeVoto thought he wrote "much the best dialogue . . . Of western characters since Mark Twain." Included are the novelettes "Good Men and True," "Bransford of Rainbow Range," and "The Trusty Knaves."
