Author's inscription to Bill Gulick as follows: "To my good pal Bill-For love of horses, baseball & writers! Love, Randall" Bill Gulick, a University of Oklahoma graduate, began his career writing for the Saturday Evening Post with a story about the Oregon Trail. He later went on to turn the story into the novel, Hallelujah Trail. The story was picked up by Hollywood along with two more of his stories, Bend of the River and Road to Denver. After nine months in Greenwich Village ( 43-44), he married Jeanne Abbot and began writing for Liberty, Colliers, and Esquire along with The Saturday Evening Post. It was shortly after the success of Bend of the River that Jeanne and Bill moved to Walla Walla, WA, where Bill still lives, though Jeanne passed on in 2001. After 64 years as a writer, Bill has 35 books to his credit; 28 of which are novels. Almost the entirety of his work encompasses the Northwest. He is a close friend of David Cosby, owner of Earthlight Books, who has inherited a large amount of his personal library and made it available online.

More Description

In the third Fe-As-Ko, cowboy Royal Leckner, his wife E. M., and Leviticus and Lou, the mentally out-of-sorts owners of the Four Arrows Ranch, have lassoed themselves a struggling baseball team. They are depending on the team to save the ranch, but getting them ready for the big time makes breaking a bronco look like child's play. In the course of a long winter's training the team and its owners encounter obstacles such as E.M.'s conniving half-sister, her jailbird father, a past baseball scandal, and the team's ruthless opponents. The team is scheduled to play the pennant-winning Boston Beaneaters in a game that will decide everyone's futures.
