    Book details

Unlikely hero Sammy Gregg has never met a challenge he won’t face head on, but he hasn’t met outlaw Chester Furness!

Born in Brooklyn, Sammy Gregg is small in stature and naive to the ways of the world, yet headstrong and resolute to save enough money to marry Susie Mitchell. Gregg calculates that he needs $15‚000 and figures he can earn enough in six months out west. Although he is a small man who knows nothing of fighting‚ guns‚ or horses‚ he takes his $5‚000 in savings and heads west‚ arriving in Munson‚ a tough, lawless town.

With his unwavering determination, Gregg finds a few good-paying jobs, but every time he runs up against Chester Furness, a fellow newcomer to Munson. But unlike Gregg, Furness runs a gang that steals horses, robs stagecoaches, and makes life hard for Sammy Gregg.

To make good on his word and return to New York with enough savings to start a new life with Susie‚ Gregg will have to face off against Furness, put an end to his raids, and rid Munson of his gang of outlaws for good. But some things are easier said than done . . .

Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction that takes place in the old West. Westerns—books about outlaws, sheriffs, chiefs and warriors, cowboys and Indians—are a genre in which we publish regularly. Our list includes international bestselling authors like Zane Gray and Louis L’Amour, and many more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Max Brand is the best-known pen name of Frederick Faust, creator of such beloved characters as Destry and Dr. Kildare, among others. Eighty motion pictures and many radio and television programs have been based on his work. Faust went to Italy as a war correspondent during World War II after the United States entered the conflict, and he was killed during a night attack on a hilltop village held by the German army. His literary output was so prolific during his life that he averaged three new books per year for seventy-five years, including many years after his death.

Review Text

  • By Michael on June 21, 2015

    This is a very unique western story written by author with such a vast array of talents, This story will keep you glued to the book and wondering what will happen next. Each turn of events is not the same as all the other western stories. In fact, a quarter of the way through the book I was still wondering why the book's title was "Stagecoach!" But all came into view as the story unwinds. Someone will surely give you a synopsis of the story, so I will not bore you by doing so again. But, for all of you short on stature and long on character, read this book today to see if you, also, can identify with the main person, Sammy Gregg. I enjoy Louis Lamour, William W. Johnstone, Zane Grey, Elmer Kelton, and many more. But this man's writing is still very different and tremendously enjoyable. This book was obtained through and the cost was low and the wait for the book was very short. I highly recommend them. Get this book today!! God Bless!!! Michael

    I am just getting into Max Brand and have enjoyed everyone of his books so far. This one is no exception. Well thought out, good character development (especially the main character and his nemesis. Western action from a perspective that I have not seen before. Action, and yet good fun as well.

    Kind of a slow starting story, but once you get involved, the plot has many twists and turns and a new crisis pops up.

    So late 19th Century and not believable.

    An old story, but the author keeps bringing up a new cause.
