The Tenderfoot by Robert Vaughan
Master of the Western adventure, New York Times best-selling author Robert Vaughan is back with another page-turner sure to please Western fans of all ages.
When Turquoise Ranch hand Curly Stevens went into Flagstaff to meet a new employee arriving on the train, his first impression of Rob Barringer is of how big and strong the tenderfoot is. Rob’s eagerness to learn and his willingness to take on the most difficult jobs win everyone over, including ranch foreman Jake Dunford, and Melanie Duford, his beautiful daughter.
Rob is well-educated, and his demeanor and intelligence catch the attention of Melanie, causing him difficulty with ranch manager Lee Garrison, who believes he has an exclusive right to Melanie. Garrison makes life difficult for the ranch hands and Rob in particular.
When Jake Dunford makes a public accusation that the ranch manager is stealing from the ranch, Garrison reacts by firing everyone, but it is Garrison who is in for a big surprise.
“Vaughan offers readers a chance to hit the trail and not even end up saddle sore.”—Publishers Weekly
