Notes

The Long Rifle (1930)Ranchero (1933)Folded Hills (1932)Stampede (1942)

These 4 books comprise "The Saga of Andy Burnett" Which follows a young Pennsylvania farm boy who escapes his overbearing step father by running away to the West. He leaves with his grandmother's blessing and "The Boone Gun", the original Kentucky rifle carried by Daniel Boone.He soon encounters a mountain man, Joe Crane, who undertakes the mentoring of Andy in the ways of survival in the wild. The remainder of the saga follows Andy as he moves west ultimately settling in California which is the setting of the last three books. This series would be considered historical fiction since it incorporates actual events and characters from the time period in the narrative.
