The Coming of the Law

Charles Alden Seltzer (1875 - 1942)

A young Easterner, Hollis, a newspaper reporter, arrives in a small western town, to inherit his father’s ranch and his newspaper. He discovers that the town and the entire county are controlled by an unscrupulous cattleman, Dunlavey. This guy is a law unto himself, stealing cattle from his neighbors, who are powerless to defend themselves because he also owns the local sheriff. Can Hollis overcome these obstacles and insure that the county is run by the rule of law? (Summary by Richard Kilmer)
