SNAKE DANCE (FIVE STAR, $25.95)

snake-danceOriginally published in the 1930s as Lady Grace’s Crossing, this new release retitled Snake Dance still holds up some 70 years later.

With this story, Coolidge molds strong characters such as Major Doyle, Silver Hat and the lovely Lady Grace (a.k.a. Slender Woman) into the familiar Old West version of the “damsel in distress” story. Description, dialogue and suspense hold the story together from beginning to end.
