This is the first Western I’ve ever read. Written in 1933, Silvertip is the story of a gray-templed gunslinger who likes spaghetti and accidentally kills the wrong man. In an effort to redeem himself he gets caught up in a feud between honorable Mexicans (can’t a guy just carve a brand into their mortal enemy’s forehead and call it even?) and ruthless, torture-loving gringos. Overall, a pretty good and exciting story with e-paper thin characters. Another great freebie from Prologue Books.
