Riders of the Silences

Riders of the Silences

Wilderness life. Chaste romance. Love triangles. A masquerade ball. Revenge. Shooting. Horses. Gambling. Thievery. No one delves into psychological side of his characters like Max Brand.

The Great West, prior to the century's turn, abounded in legend. Stories were told of fabled gunmen whose bullets always magically found their mark, of mighty stallions whose tireless gallop rivaled the speed of the wind, of glorious women whose beauty stunned mind and heart. But nowhere in the vast spread of the mountain-desert country was there a greater legend told than the story of Red Pierre and the phantom gunfighter McGurk.

These two men of the wilderness, so unalike, of widely-differing backgrounds, had in common a single trait: each was unbeatable. Fate brought them clashing together, thunder to thunder, lightning to lightning. They were destined to meet at the crossroads of a long, long trail ... a trail which began in the northern wastes of Canada and led, finally, to a deadly confrontation in the mountains of the Far West.

Riders of the Silences was first published in 1920. This version is unabridged. Also available as audiobook (TRT): 7 hours and 12 min. Read by Richard Kilmer.

Max Brand was the pen name for Frederick Schiller Faust (1892-1944) who was an American author known primarily for his thoughtful and literary Westerns.
